Diversity is key to any thriving workplace; collaboration of different backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas always leads to progress. We must have a level of understanding about each other in order to facilitate such collaboration and cooperation.
The Student Employment Office recently hosted a Diversity Training seminar to provide supervisors with a refresher on working with people who have ideas, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that are different from their own.
The seminar was lead by Lisa Montgomery (Director of Inclusion, Diversity, and Employer Engagement) who created a fun and interactive enviroment through which the importance of diversity could easily be discussed. SEO recieved fantastic feedback from atendees regarding the success of the event.
