Outline a diversity training program for employees of a global organization.
You have been hired as the Training and Development Manager in HR at On the Go IT Global, a US-based company, which has facilities in several countries including the UAE, China, and India. During a meeting with your manager, Global HR Manager, Mr. Abdul Baqri, has instructed you to develop an outline for a diversity training program for leadership and employees of your global organization. This plan must include an assessment of cultural competence of both leaders and employees. This outline will be used to build out the full cultural diversity training program for your company beginning in the next calendar year. Therefore, Mr. Baqri has stated that specifics are important as you design the outline.
