Short Description: Managing diversity is one of the hardest challenges any manager can face. The purpose of a diversity program is to create a positive workplace where no one feels they are at an advantaged or disadvantaged; they are usually built around one of three management methods: the discrimination and fairness paradigm, the access and legitimacy paradigm, or the learning and effectiveness paradigm. Besides these paradigms, companies also use training programs and other practices to manage diversity.

Diversity management is one of the more difficult tasks an organization’s manager may have to undertake. This course discusses several paradigms of diversity management, along with tips on managing diversity programs.
