Active Diversity Learning: Redesigning Diversity Training to Enhance Skill Development Webinar,
with Quinetta M. Roberson, Ph.D.
While diversity training and education programs have proliferated in organizations, the effectiveness of such programs has been called into question given unconvincing evidence of their actual and lasting impact on employee learning and transfer to the work environment. This talk will review existing research findings on the effects of diversity training and highlight potential issues with current training designs, as well as a new, learning-centered approach.
Roberson is the Fred J. Springer Endowed Chair in Business Leadership at Villanova University. Her research focuses on developing organizational capability and enhancing effectiveness through the strategic management of people, particularly diverse work teams.
