Course Description

This course introduces diversity within the context of an increasingly multicultural workforce that exists within an increasingly pluralistic world. As organizations are becoming more diverse in both local and global contexts, leaders and followers within organizations need skills and understandings to work productively with fellow members, customers, suppliers, regulatory bodies, and communities that are different from them. Through examples of successful innovations and the use and understanding of applications that clarify the complexity of diversity within organizations and socity, this course gives students the opportunities to think critically about ways to promote and manage diversity while learning how to apply best practices to the challenges of working in and leading diverse and inclusive organizations. Through the discussion of new and timely diversity topics, including: gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, appearance, sexual orientation and others; students gain a foundational understanding of key concepts like racial and cultural identity, stereotyping, privilege, discrimination, diversity leadership, and workplace communication. In this course, students can expect to gain revelatory cultural insight into themselves and diverse organizations in our multicultural world. 3 Credits
