Course Overview

The Supervisor Role in Diversity course is designed to equip supervisors with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage diversity in the workplace. This course focuses on helping supervisors understand the importance of diversity, foster an inclusive work environment, and navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with leading a diverse team. Participants will learn strategies for promoting diversity and inclusion, addressing bias and discrimination, and leveraging the strengths of a diverse workforce to drive organizational success.


This course is suitable for supervisors and managers who have direct reports and are responsible for overseeing teams in a diverse work environment. Participants should have a foundational understanding of supervisory roles and responsibilities. Familiarity with basic workplace policies and practices is beneficial but not mandatory.


The Supervisor Role in Diversity course utilizes a combination of interactive and participatory methodologies to facilitate learning and skill development. The methodologies used include:

Group Discussions: Participants will engage in group discussions to share their experiences, perspectives, and challenges related to managing diversity as a supervisor. These discussions foster a collaborative learning environment where participants can learn from each other’s insights and best practices.

Role-plays and Simulations: Participants will engage in role-plays and simulations to practice applying diversity management strategies in realistic scenarios. These activities provide opportunities for participants to develop their skills in addressing diversity-related issues, promoting inclusive practices, and handling difficult conversations.

Self-Reflection Exercises: Participants will engage in self-reflection exercises to deepen their understanding of their own biases, beliefs, and assumptions. These exercises promote self-awareness and help participants identify areas for personal growth and development as inclusive leaders.
