Making a Difference - The Personal Effectiveness in Diversity
This workshop is an introduction to the Personal Effectiveness
in Diversity Program, a program premised on the belief that diversity
management strategies and initiatives must deliver tangible outcomes
in order to instil confidence.
It is not a program that will turn non-believers into believers.
The Program takes diversity from a concept to something that
is tangible, practical, workable and understandable for any leader
who understands that successfully managing diversity will give
their company a competitive advantage.
The program assists participants to address diversity in the
way it makes sense to them by focussing on specific outcomes
tailored to business needs as described by the participant in
their action learning plan.
The approach combines self-paced and self-directed learning
with a structured coaching program over 10 weeks. Included in
the program are: a personal assessment phase; an introductory
one-day workshop; a series of weekly one-to-one coaching sessions;
and a final evaluation workshop.
Caroline B. Pinto works as the principal consultant for ICDR

development process for people who address issues of social justice
inclusion within corporate Australia.
Dr Zane Ma Rhea works at the National Centre for Gender and
Diversity, Swinburne University of Technology. She crosses higher
