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, ÂDiversity: Valuing the Individual,Â is suitable for all levels of staff. The second, ÂManaging Diversity,Â is targeted at management-to-executive level employeesÂan area of the corporate ladder that has traditionally seen fewer minorities and women.
ÂEven with the advances of the past decades, there are still many misconceptions and myths surrounding diversity,Â says Eva Jenkins, President of VIP Innovations. ÂThe goal of our diversity workshops is to demystify it and clearly show how contrast adds character and companies can manage diversity as an asset.Â
Designed to empower businesses to recruit, manage and leverage a diverse workforce, the workshops are targeted at businesses both large and small.
ÂDiversity is not a short-term trend but a business issue,Â says Jenkins. ÂAs 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.Â
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 CourtÂs upcoming mid-February response to a case sparked by the University of MichiganÂs affirmative action policy.
According to the multi-million dollar companiesÂ brief, diversity creates a more competitive workforce that can Âfacilitate unique and creative approaches to problem solving.Â
VIP Innovations, an affiliate of the internationally recognized consulting firm 360 Solutions, offers a variety of Âhigh performanceÂ management consulting and training. The upcoming diversity workshops will be held March 25th and March 28th. The cost is $249.00 per participant.
