Does Diversity Training Work?
Employment attorney John Phillips gives his thoughts on a report that diversity training doesn't work. An excerpt:
If employers engage in diversity training just to check a box or to have some evidence they can use in case they get sued for discrimination, the training is hardly worth the time and expense. If diversity training is part of a broader initiative to create, in time, a more diverse workforce that works together in harmony and with respect, then diversity training can be an important component in any employer’s human resource practices.
