HR Professionals are familiar with the laws that prohibit harassment and discrimination. They know when to do an investigation and when to discipline for violations of those laws and related policies. A culturally competent workplace goes beyond compliance. It naturally discourages harassment and discrimination. And, just as importantly, it allows employees to be their authentic selves at work, creating the best opportunity for success of individuals and organizations. The "DE&I: Creating Inclusive Workplace Environments" course will provide Business Leaders and HR Professionals a deeper understanding of the benefits of and barriers to a diverse and inclusive work environment.
