Can You Teach Diversity and Inclusion?

Should diversity and inclusion be taught in today’s society?In workplace situations, it is imperative there is a cultural environment where employees and leaders embrace difference, mirror inclusive behaviour, and appreciate the value diversity can bring to their bottom-line. Diversity and inclusion training often focuses on unconscious and conscious bias, self-awareness and building bridges between individuals with different identities. Corporations which embark on this type of training first need to delve into their own corporate identity and culture to confirm they have the support systems in place for successful training.
