Business Soft Skills Series
Our online Soft Skills Series is designed with "mix and match" capabilities, focusing your professional development in the areas needed most. Developed based on feedback from our community partners, this series targets skills that employers say are necessary for modern office environments. With businesses having employees from different generations, backgrounds and cultures working alongside one another, understanding diversity and communication in a varied environment are more important now than ever.
Cultural Diversity 101
In an increasingly diverse world, learning to work with people of varied backgrounds, cultures, and orientations is important. This module is designed to introduce you to the circumstances that help shape individuals and how you can apply that knowledge to work more effectively with people different than you. This professional development module was designed as part of our Soft Skills Series to help you better understand and respond to diversity in the workplace.
In this course, you will:
- Think critically about the circumstances that make up your individuality
- Learn about the labels, cultures, and experiences that make people unique
- Get tips on how to identify commonalities rather than focusing on differences
Soft Skills Series are a noncredit offering. Modules are designed to be completed in about one hour. Series is not financial aid eligible.
