In honor of Black History Month, the OTD team is reflecting on and celebrating diversity! We know that organizations reap the benefits of diversity—when employees bring their whole, authentic selves to work. And we know that diverse teams are more productive, innovative, and engaged.
Authenticity at work means sharing and speaking up about work and life experiences that may be different based on one’s identity. Developing the skills to conduct meaningful conversations on potentially polarizing topics such as race, religion, and gender is critical for all professionals, managers, and team leaders at MSU. That’s why we’re highlighting a few of LinkedIn Learning’s best courses surrounding the topic.
