diversity tips for managers

Diversity training often results in increased awareness for participants. They appreciate subtle differences they didn’t notice before. They recognize things they do and say which might create communication barriers. And they get frustrated because they’re not sure what they could be actively doing to support diversity initiatives in their organization.

Tracy’s Top Ten Tips for Managers:

  1. Check out your own biases.
  2. Involve employees in decisions.
  3. Explain the organization’s commitment to diversity in positive terms,
  4. Apply for a “Learner’s Permit”.
  5. Communicate your goals related to diversity.
  6. Ask for help.
  7. Be flexible when you can.
  8. Reward employees who take risks.
  9. Focus on equity, not impartiality.
  10. Find a mentor.

If you apply these tips you will make significant progress as you move from increased awareness to consistent action which supports your organization’s commitment to diversity!
