VinciWorks launches Diversity and Inclusion four-course suite

Diversity has become an important component of a successful business, and employers have a responsibility to ensure a culture where people from all backgrounds feel welcome. But what’s the best way to create a work culture in which everyone, from the CEO to the managers to all employees, embraces diversity and promotes equality? What is the best way to effectively train on respectful engagement with others? What about training for managers; what is the most effective way to make managers aware of their responsibilities, with training that does not feel judgemental?

VinciWorks is excited to announce it has released a new, innovative diversity suite that will provide solutions for all of these issues and more. The new suite includes four different courses, each with a different focus.

Here’s an overview of the four courses in the suite:
