The organizational challenge now is bigger than just bringing all this diversity together, keeping the peace, and getting the job done. Sync up the organization and the people.

Not Your Grandfather's Diversity Training

CLO Magazine

When the state of Michigan learned that the minorities who worked for the agency did not feel their opinions mattered, leaders created nontraditional diversity training programs to promote more effective ways to communicate.
