Appreciating and Leveraging Difference™ Cohort

Appreciating and Leveraging Differences addresses the challenges of a diverse and global workforce and transforms tensions into creative problem solving.

Through Align Leadership’s diversity and inclusion program, an intact team or group of leaders gain a broader perspective and experience on Diversity and Inclusion (D&I). Through the program they share their diversity story; learn about value and tensions of D&I; discover the connection between the company’s values and principles with D&I; and practice a framework with tools for D&I. These processes and tools help people leverage the visible and invisible dimensions of diversity, remain open to new perspectives, connect in meaningful ways and create new possibilities for solving problems.
