VIP Innovations Offers New Diversity Training Programs

Washington-based training and consulting company VIP Innovations, announces plans to offer two new training programs on the topic of workplace diversity. Included in the programs are two workshops. The first, “Diversity: Valuing the Individual,” is suitable for all levels of staff. The second, “Managing Diversity,” is targeted at management-to-executive level employees—an area of the corporate ladder that has traditionally seen fewer minorities and women.

“Even with the advances of the past decades, there are still many misconceptions and myths surrounding diversity,” says Eva Jenkins, President of VIP Innovations. “The goal of our diversity workshops is to demystify it and clearly show how contrast adds character and companies can manage diversity as an asset.”

Designed to empower businesses to recruit, manage and leverage a diverse workforce, the workshops are targeted at businesses both large and small.

“Diversity is not a short-term trend but a business issue,” says Jenkins. “As such, it affects businesses of all size. Our programs illustrate the importance of managing diversity as a business issue and instruct clients on how to go about doing that.”

Many successful companies already view diversity in the workplace as a plus. Microsoft, General Motors and Bank One, among others, have spoken out in a brief directed at the Supreme Court regarding the Court’s upcoming mid-February response to a case sparked by the University of Michigan’s affirmative action policy.

According to the multi-million dollar companies’ brief, diversity creates a more competitive workforce that can “facilitate unique and creative approaches to problem solving.”

VIP Innovations, an affiliate of the internationally recognized consulting firm 360 Solutions, offers a variety of “high performance” management consulting and training. The upcoming diversity workshops will be held March 25th and March 28th. The cost is $249.00 per participant.
