Basic characteristics of a diverse workplace.

Prepare a presentation to serve as a brief, but substantive introduction for the first meeting with a group of 4–5 members who will participate on the committee tasked with addressing the diversity issue. Once I review more information about the proposed team I can help you with the recruitment. The presentation should be 5–7 minutes and use 6–8 slides with detailed speaker’s notes so I can understand your approach. Not a lot of time or space, so keep things pretty high level. Do the following:

  1. Briefly outline the project goals and highlight 2–3 of the initial priorities to be addressed by the group. Also, explain why they are important.
  2. Explain the composition of the team and why you chose them. Note that you will not know the exact individuals yet, but assume we will recruit the people with the desired qualities and characteristics that you outline in the presentation. Consider the following:

· Include a group of professionals you believe can help define the problem and ultimately make recommendations on how to address it.

· Make sure each member is either trained in, sensitive to, or has experience with the concept of workplace diversity.

· Give some thought to having some members from outside the organization.

· Provide member profiles: their diversity, qualifications, experience, internal versus external, and so forth.

  1. Explain your role and describe how the committee will work together and achieve effective interprofessional collaboration.

· Describe how the group will communicate. How and when they will meet.

· Describe how ideas will be shared and decisions made.

· Describe roles, group function, and structure.

  1. Describe the basic characteristics of a diverse workplace.
  2. Provide a convincing argument regarding the benefits of a diverse workforce using support from current research.
