    Due to the changing of demographics, increasing global business, and technological innovations, the composition of the workforce of today, and in the future, will be much more diverse, and the business challenges and opportunities will be unique. The goal of diversity and inclusion in the workplace is that new faces, differing points of view, life experiences, and cultural values will be seen as attributes that help our social, economic, and government organizations achieve their goals and objectives.

    Corporations in the United States spend more money annually on training than do all public school systems in the country. As the gap widens between the knowledge, skills, and abilities of what entry-level employees are required to know and do and what they actually know and do, training specialists and consultants become increasingly more valuable. However, training is no longer a function of just a Human Resources professional. Today, many managers and professionals are being asked to be responsible for the training and development of their employees. In addition, employees are expected to manage their own careers and personal brands in an increasingly complex work environment. This course provides students tools to meet these organizational and individual challenges. Students will work with a client organization to collect data, design a workshop, and perform an evaluation. Skills in curriculum design, data analysis, and communication will be enhanced.

    Prerequisite: BCOR 3610
