Diversity & Inclusion, a program for Businesses, Nonprofits and Government Agencies
Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace merges LISTENING FOR A CHANGE'S mission of "promoting
understanding and acceptance of human diversity" and the need for employees to learn active listening
skills to interact more effectively within their own work culture and with clients, customers
and patients served.
LISTENING FOR A CHANGE teaches attentive listening skills and cultural awareness through a wide variety
of interactive activities. Self examination and acknowledgement of cultural assumptions
is one aspect. The second component focuses on active listening that includes body language,
tone of voice, open-ended questions, follow-up questions, and much more. Becoming an active,
respectful listener is a valuable tool in the workplace as well as in the personal and community
life of employees.
CROSSING BOUNDARIES: As participants spend time interacting with each other and discovering
similarities and differences, they gain a broader outlook and valuable insight into how others
see and approach work situations. In the process, participants become aware of their own
assumptions, thereby helping them communicate more consciously and effectively.
LISTENING FOR A CHANGE intentionally cross integrates participants and encourages managers and
employees to do the same when forming task forces, staff meetings, project teams, trainings, or
conferences. This offers the staff opportunity to build common ground and breaks down barriers
among groups and individuals.
LISTENING FOR A CHANGE provides two, four or eight-hour workshops.
