Championing Diversity™
Champion the perspectives of your diverse workforce.


Diversity training in many organizations is as much a mandate to reduce legal exposure as it is to help employees work better together. But to what end? While we might think we see the world as it is, we in fact perceive it the way we are. Imagine a workplace that ventures beyond mere tolerance and deems each employee, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender, as able to make an irreplaceable contribution-as long as his or her uniqueness is sought out, embraced, and celebrated.

The Solution


By actually "championing" diversity, you can unleash the power of your employees. From this foundation of collaboration and understanding, innovation and trust will flow through your workforce, driving your organization toward otherwise unachievable results. The FranklinCovey Championing Diversity team building workshop helps participants learn how to increase understanding and deepen trust, communicate more productively, achieve higher levels of collaboration, and boost creativity and innovation together.
