About the course

Participants will experience an innovative process of creating a systemic model of diversity management as they move beyond legal compliance to the empowerment of organizational members and the creation of a competitive advantage.

In this class, participants, as leaders of diversity, will examine their own organizations in terms of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Participants will experience an innovative process of creating a systemic model of diversity management. You will move beyond legal compliance to the empowerment of organizational members and the creation of a competitive advantage by putting into practice the Integrated Model of Diversity Management, a model designed by Dr. Cañas.

More specifically, participants will engage in a three-step process.

Step One

First, participants will examine their organization’s strengths and areas of development in light of the seven components of the Integrated Model of Diversity Management. These components—as they all relate to Diversity and Inclusion (D&I)—are as follows: 1) authentic leadership commitment 2) clear organizational communication 3) inclusive recruitment practices 4) long-term retention strategies 5) incorporating diversity into the work of the organization 6) diversity management metrics 7) expansive external relationships. As participants engage in this process, they will maintain focus on all of the protected classes—including race, national origin, gender, LGBTQ+, religion, age, veterans status, and disabilities—so that all classes are embraced and accounted for in their model.

Step Two

Second, participants will move this organizational analysis to the next step of prioritizing particular D&I goals. Participants will articulate the 1) organizational need, 2) D&I initiative/goal, 3) proposed outcome, and 4) diversity management metric (created to measure this goal). This second step will help participants narrow their focus as they move toward creating specific organizational goals and initiatives in light of the analysis performed in step one.

Step Three

Third, after examining strengths and areas of opportunity in light of the integrated approach to managing diversity and articulating organizational D&I goals, participants will create a diversity plan as they add structure to steps one and two. Participants will decide to use a specific timeline to create their diversity strategy or a multi-phase plan. As Dr. Cañas facilitates this three-step process, she will integrate a case study representing best D&I practices using Johnson & Johnson as the exemplar.
