When many people think of diversity, they first think of ethnicity, race, and then gender. Diversity is much broader. In the context of the workplace or in a group environment, valuing diversity means creating a space that respects and includes differences, recognizing the unique contributions that different people can make, and creating an environment that maximizes the potential of all.
Come learn how you can turn the families you serve into healthier eaters! Recharge your food distribution location through signage, colors, packaging, product placement, and innovative nutrition education strategies - all to encourage people to select more nourishing foods.
Servant Leadership is a practical philosophy which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant Leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant Leadership encourages collaboration, trust, listening, empathy, healing, awareness, stewardship and the ethical use of power and empowerment.
Conflict is a part of life, but too much of it is a drain on critical resources like time, money and people. Understand how to manage it: recognize common causes of conflict, learn techniques for managing or resolving conflict situations with customers, co-workers and volunteers.
