"Perspectives" Business Diversity Training

The Greater Mankato Diversity Council provides diversity awareness and prejudice reduction training for staff of area organizations through its Perspectives Business Curriculum. The Perspectives Business Curriculum is a multi-faceted, interchangeable diversity training module, developed by the Greater Mankato Diversity Council, that effectively addresses each individual business's diversity needs.

Mutual respect and civility has always been an important matter in the workplace.  Employees who feel welcomed and valued have better job performance.

Diversity Training from GMDC is customized to the needs of your organization.  We gather information about any areas of concern (recent changes in the composition of your workforce) or things your organization is being diligent about preventing (discrimination, sexual harassment).  We interview your staff and then create a plan for the training that includes tested curriculum elements.

Our primary trainer is Bukata Hayes, Executive Director of the Greater Mankato Diversity Council.
