Workplace diversity focus of talk

A free workshop titled “Embracing Diversity in Your Workplace” is coming to Vernon on Nov. 14.

As the workplace continues to become more and more diverse, the role of a leader is that much more challenging.

With such a broad range of backgrounds, cultures, beliefs and experiences all coming together, it can be difficult for people to work together effectively.

A free workshop titled “Embracing Diversity in Your Workplace” is coming to Vernon on Nov. 14.

Presented by author and award‐winning career management specialist Dr. Roberta Neault, this workshop will teach you about the ROI model of diversity.

This workshop will allow participants to engage with other local employers to discuss what’s working, what’s not and what to do differently. Leave with practical tools and strategies to ensure that your workplace is one that can effectively attract and retain the best workers, regardless of background or culture.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Pacific Inn and Suites, 4790-34th Street. There is no cost to attend.

Organized by the NexusBC Community Resource Centre, this workplace diversity workshop is part of the Welcoming Communities initiative.

“NexusBC is aware of many of the issues immigrants face when they move to a new community,” said Pam Myers, program manager for NexusBC and workshop organizer.

“And we are excited to be taking an active role in the Welcoming Communities program in Vernon.”

Welcoming Communities, which is funded by WelcomeBC, is an initiative of the province of B.C. and the federal government to provide a framework for making B.C. communities more inclusive for new immigrants.

Anyone interested in attending should contact the NexusBC Community Resource Centre at 250-545-0585 or visit www.nexusbc.
