This program equips participants with the skills to understand the basic concepts of diversity: definitions,
terms, and behavioral changes that foster valuing diversity and inclusion. They will take part in practical exercises, and explore how stereotypes are formed and the negative impact they can have on relationships. Participants leave with the confidence and skills to engage in meaningful conversations around the issues of diversity.
