MHC 655 Managing Workforce Diversity (3 credits)
Managing diversity is becoming increasingly important to contemporary organizations and is likely to become more critical in the future as the population and workforce become even more heterogeneous. Human diversity is both a moral imperative and a potential source of competitive advantage. This course is designed to help students become aware of the multiple dimensions of diversity such as race, class, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, age, and nationality. In addition, differences in function, perspective, and work style will be explored to examine their potential impact in the workplace. The course provides information and experiences to help make students more proficient in dealing with an increasingly diverse workforce.
Prerequisite:Completion or waiver of MGT 500.
