Facilitated by Jon Werner, Professor of Management at UW-Whitewater

Presentation Description

Professor Werner will initiate the roundtable discussions by reviewing the highlights of recent research on organizational diversity practices and how those practices were perceived by the employees involved.  He will facilitate discussion over what it means to manage for diversity and ideas for how to achieve an open and inclusive work environment, one that works for all employees and applicants.  He will also share and encourage discussion over successful and less-than-successful practices for managing a diverse workforce.  

1.  Attendees will learn what recent research shows regarding what works, and what doesn’t, in organizations seeking to manage their diversity.
2.  Attendees will be able to discuss current issues they face regarding diversity and inclusion in their own organizations, and suggestions for addressing these issues.
3.  Attendees will learn about the role of HR professionals and all levels of management in building an inclusive workforce.
