Loden Associates, Inc. is a recognized leader in the diversity education
field and has developed awareness and skills training programs for clients
in the financial services, consumer products, technology and telecommunications
industries. The firm's "Diversity at Work" training series includes behavioral
and attitudinal training programs that can be customized for executives,
managers and employees in large and smaller organizations.
This model illustrates both the primary and secondary dimensions of diversity that exerts an impact on each of us at home, work and in society. While each dimension adds a layer of complexity to individual identity, it is the dynamic interaction among all the dimensions that influences self-image, values, opportunities and expectations. Together, the primary and secondary dimensions of diversity give definition and meaning to our lives by contributing to a synergistic, integrated whole -- the diverse person.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING
High performance in any organization depends upon open lines of communication. Gender conflict reduces productivity, contributes to job-related stress, and increasingly results in grievance suits. This awareness training is proactive, preventative, and inclusive, and designed to educate the entire organizational culture. All points of view are valued and both sexes are considered equally part of the problem and part of the solution in a blame free atmosphere.
Our approach is to focus on gender conflict on the job by developing protocols for communication that acknowledge the real differences that often exist between women and men. The result- anxiety and fear between women and men are reduced, communication is enhanced, and a cooperative approach to gender conflicts is established. Unlike typical training which tends to focus on unilateral harassment rules that tend to drive conflict underground and paradoxically often breeds more distrust and hostility in the work environment, our approach enhances the workplace and makes interactions more pleasant, less humiliating and intimidating. It makes it easier for effective work to be done.
Our purpose is to align the employer's objectives with people strategies to ensure success in business and harmony in the workplace. The result - limited risk and potential liability of employment discrimination or harassment.
