If you have to ask if a certain behavior is discriminatory, chances are, there’s already a problem. For every discrimination lawsuit, there were many more instances where discrimination occurred and was not reported. Workplace discrimination is about more than the standard list of minorities that are protected by law. Everyone who comes in to work has a different worldview and even if they just have a different way of working than the person the next cube over, that should be respected. In her new book, The Diversity Code, Michelle Johnson lets us know that it’s more than following a simple set of rules; each company needs to create a culture of acceptance.
Michelle is the author of a new book, The Diversity Code. Sheâ€™s creator of the Diversity Diva Newspaper Column, a former employment attorney and author of â€œWorking While Black.â€ Her diversity workshop clients have included Wal-Mart, H & R Block, and several municipalities.
