Managing yourself in a Diverse Workplace Workshop This is an 3-hour interactive workshop dedicated to engaging participants in interactive learning exercises to increase self-awareness about their strengths and challenges around differences and similarities. Participants will be required to take a diversity profile instrument before the workshop so that they will gain personal insight into their comforts and challenges regarding race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, culture, etc. Participants will receive a GSU diversity passport tool listing programs, activities, lectures, concerts, etc. specific to the GSU campus/community. This tool will assist as a follow-up towards increased personal awareness, expanded knowledge, and the ability to demonstrate diversity competencies.
