    Building on the previous chapter diversity sessions which introduced the concepts of diversity and generational differences, this training will take those ideas to the next level with insights into the importance of inclusion and creating a work environment which promotes diversity of thought.

    We will explore the connections between diversity, inclusion, and diversity of thought and what it means to recognize, provide access, and embrace input from all employees. Additionally, we will discuss how we can all take steps to align these concepts with goals, core values, and overall business strategy.

    It is important to continue efforts so we will close by discussing the business benefits and the true business advantages that can be gained by encouraging diversity of thought.  We will also provide tips and best practices to capitalize on the engagement of employees in this culture shift.
