With recent events, racial biases and destructive ideological groups dominating headlines in the U.S., there's no better time to improve your knowledge about managing diversity at work.
Racism and discrimination are not always overt or obvious, and we all hold unconscious biases of some form or another that we are not even aware of. But employers have a legal responsibility to provide a workplace that is free of discrimination. Litigation may arise in relation to an employer's behavior and actions towards racialized persons.
In this session, learn best practices to ensure that unintentional discrimination does not go unchecked in your workplace.
- An employer's obligations in regards to managing a diverse workforce
- Actions and behaviours exhibited by management that amount to damages when dealing with racialized groups
- Recent court and tribunal hearings that held employers accountable for engaging in stereotyping and racial discrimination
- Understanding the impact of The Ontario Human Rights Commission's policy and guidelines on racism and racial discrimination
