Diversity Training is meant to give a broader perspective to the employees where they could interact with people from different cultural backgrounds, improve their knowledge and skills. In a multinational organization, we often come across employees from cross-borders working in teams to complete a project.
In order to ensure that there are no civil rights violations and to promote better team work, diversity training plays an important role. Diversity training is appreciated in corporate culture as the project managers face certain issues in managing people from different cultures.
There is also a bit of negativity associated with it as critics point out that diversity training will deepen the differences across people from different cultures as it reminds of racialism where instead it is better to have commonality at the work place with standard ethics.
