What is Diversity?
The differences that make each of us unique

It is all of our responsibilities when we hear or observe behavior that is disrespectful and/ or unprofessional to act as leaders
Do not ignore it
Professionally communicate why this type of behavior will not be tolerated
Escalate it to management immediately
Diversity Awareness
A tool that many use is a
to ensure that we always treat
others in a respectful manner at all times. A
is a pause in
your reaction to evaluate what caused your response and evaluate how to most productively respond.
Consider the following:
How would you expect to be treated?
What do you actually know about the person?
Have you allowed one instance to generate a perception or belief?
Remember, good and bad assumptions can be wrong
Positive: Friendly greetings, use the employees name, ask their opinions
Negative: Use a derogatory nickname, blame the person without understanding fully
Non-verbal: Think about your body language
Positive: Smile, make eye contact
Negative: Roll your eyes, look down as you pass someone in the workplace
Remember, appreciating diversity leads to a more productive and pleasant work environment
