President and CEO at WCM Firm Inc.
When people tell me, “our company can’t afford diversity training right now”, my response is, “your company can’t afford to forgo diversity training, especially RIGHT NOW!
As organizations realize the benefits of a diverse workforce, diversity and inclusion are becoming more of a business imperative. Organizations are creating diversity and inclusion programs, establishing diversity task forces or employee resource groups, hiring diversity officers, and conducting diversity training in the workplace.
WCM Firm will help your organization take a holistic approach to build a diverse and inclusive culture. Training is an effective tool to promote diversity and educate employees on diversity and inclusion practices. Your employees must understand how their thinking, conscious, or unconscious, will play a role in their day-to-day interactions with co-workers, customers, partners, vendors, and others.
Implementation of a diversity training program is also an important step in helping to reduce the risk of workplace discrimination and harassment claims. In settling discrimination cases, the EEOC often requires companies to educate employees on the importance of diversity in hiring and promotion, and how to avoid stereotypes. Additionally, your employees’ actions, on the clock or off the clock, play a huge role in what your stakeholders and the community thinks about your organization. WCM Firm is here to help you avoid situations like Ken Gill at CPI Security, John Schnatter at Papa Johns, and Amy Cooper at Franklin Templeton. If you don’t think your employees’ actions and biases, whether conscious or unconscious, can hurt your reputation, ask Minneapolis police chief, Medaria Arradondo how costly his employee, Derek Chauvin’s actions were to him, his department and his city. WCM Firm is happy to announce it’s I3 Information Into Intelligence™, diversity training program will be offered virtually beginning July 6, 2020. We will be selecting 3 police departments and 2 community leadership classes the course free during the month of August and September (up to 30 participants). We are committed to making the communities in which we live inclusive, safe, and equitable.
