Using clear definitions and straightforward skill-building tools, facilitator Dan Egger-Belandria leads the group through a process of self-awareness around individual behavior patterns, the potential impact these behaviors have on colleagues' attitude affecting productivity, and the distinct difference between professional demeanor and personal preferences.

The Diversity Management Toolbox is an engaging and interactive experience that can bolster positive results to employee morale and organizational profit margin. By the end of the day, employees will better understand how their intentions may differ from their impact on the organization, while leadership will have clear initiatives and goals that could become a toolbox for managing diversity successfully within legal parameters.
