Diversity. Think about it. What truly is diversity? Are we as diverse in the workplace as we need to be to succeed in today's world?

Diversity is defined as the state or fact of being diverse; difference; unlikeness: diversity of opinion; variety; the inclusion of individuals representing more than one national origin, color, religion, socioeconomic stratum, sexual orientation, etc.

What about you, your work? Diverse?

The answer is probably, or, maybe, not. Well, there is help available. The Grand Rapids Community Foundation is sponsoring a workshop for that very thing, Tuesday, November 17 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Grand Rapids Community headquarters in downtown Grand Rapids, 185 Oakes, Street, SW, 49503.

This individualized workshop offers your organization the opportunity to build a customized business case for diversity based on its actual reality and needs. Diversity initiatives are not one-size-fits-all. Too many organizations spend too little time and effort building this critical foundation for their diversity initiatives, and then are perplexed when those initiatives stall or do not produce desired results.

This indepth workshop will be facilitated by David Luna,
