Diversity presents both a challenge and an opportunity for employers. This discussion invites us to think about what employees from different groups need from their managers/organizations to be effective, and the advantages of hiring and supporting different groups of employees.
Think about each of the following groups in the workforce:
People with disabilities
Elder care givers (taking care of parents)
Parents of children under 15
Younger people (millennial’s or younger)
Older people (baby boomers or older)
Pick any four of the above groups and respond to the following questions:
What can they add to the organization that should make employers want to hire them and provide that support? What special skills, knowledge, or attributes do they have?
What do they need? What kinds of support would they like from their managers and organizations? What specific benefits, policies, and management approaches would the groups you identified find most helpful?
Borrowing from your class readings and external research, and based on your insight from responding to the questions above, what recommendations would you give to your current organization for improving its diversity and inclusion practices for the groups you identified above?
