Managing Diversity in the Global Workplace
A rapidly expanding global economy requires expert knowledge and sensitivities to a vast array of individual, group, and cultural diversities. In this course, students analyze multicultural concerns and the competencies that impact work relationships, communications, and performance. By examining one's own culturally developed orientations and biases, students are encouraged to embrace the positive functions of diversity and inclusion to overcome obstacles to cross-cultural adaptation. Analysis of the ethnocentric American model is challenged. Racial, ethnic, gender, age, family status, and global cross-cultural differences of several countries provide the foundation on which we build best-practice models of the future.
