Diversity Matters

Jun 17, 2017

This is the Manager’s Minute.

In today’s interconnected world, diversity and inclusion are becoming increasingly essential to every healthy organization.

Understanding racial, ethnic, gender and religious issues is an important skill for everyone in the workplace, especially those in management and leadership positions.

Recently, I attended the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity, commonly called NCORE, sponsored by the University of Oklahoma Outreach.

About 3,000 students, faculty and administrators from higher education institutions across the United States attended NCORE, to learn how to recognize and address stereotyping and bias in communications and operations.

NCORE emphasized that appreciating cultural differences helps make organizations stronger and better.

If you have any questions about diversity policies and practices at KGOU, contact me.

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
