In light of recent global events, LinkedIn is taking steps to aid in inclusivity and community wellness. LinkedIn is doing their part to encourage inclusion and diversity in the workplace through offering free online courses. These courses include topics such as Confronting Bias, Skills for Inclusive Conversations, and Communicating Across Cultures.
These courses aim to encourage growth and development within the workplace. They teach about diversity, inclusion, and belonging in an environment that is free of bias. These skills will aid in allowing the workplace to be a comfortable and profitable space for everyone.
I think courses such as these are very important for individuals. As unfortunate as it is, we hear all too often about discrimination in the workplace. LinkedIn is doing their part to aid in creating an environment that is inclusive and welcoming. In addition, I think it is important for everyone to feel comfortable when discussing topics that they may feel uncomfortable with. These topics could range from cultural differences to global events. I think there is no shame in asking to be educated and keeping an open mind.
All members of organizations need to stand together in order to fight against bias in the workplace and in the world. These courses are definitely a step in the right direction.
