4 valuing a diverse workforce
4. Valuing a Diverse Workforce

Diversity is all about the unique ways we differ as people, and the value those differences bring to our workplace and our classrooms. Some of our differences are physical, such as nationality, gender, race and age. But we also share less visible differences such as culture, personal values, and religious beliefs. Valuing diversity means appreciating our individualism and behaving in such a way that we also respect each other's differences.

4 valuing a diverse workforce15
(4.) Valuing a diverse workforce

A diverse workforce can be one of our greatest assets. Beyond recruitment and hiring, we must focus on retention and motivation of the diverse workforce we worked so hard to employ. For minority employees, the missing piece is often a strong sense of self and an appreciation for who they are and what they offer.

4 valuing a diverse workforce16
(4.) Valuing a diverse workforce

Diversity lays the foundation for the transformational work that must be done first with every member of our college community. First of all, the members of the majority culture---that is generally white, upper middle class---must understand the reason why managing diversity is in the college’s best interest.

Then, they must develop some empathy for what it truly is like for members of the minority culture. Only after that inside out work is accomplished will a managing diversity program be effective.

Q: What does SRJC do to insure fairness in the hiring process while respectingdiversity?
  • A: SRJC makes good faith efforts to remove identified barriers, expand employment opportunities, and train hiring committees on strategies to avoid bias. Good faith efforts include broad advertising of job openings; supplemental inclusive outreach efforts to ensure that all qualified candidates, including minorities and women, are represented in applicant pools; and careful monitoring of outreach, recruitment, search and selection practices to ensure that equal opportunity is provided at every stage of these processes.
