Who said you shouldnt sweat the small stuff? What if those small things undermined morale and reduced productivity? This new diversity program, Drop by Drop, demonstrates how the small slights, subtle discriminations and tiny injustices can add up to big problems in your workplace! These little negative gestures are called micro-inequities and they occur in organizations every day. These small communications of disrespect, prejudice and inequality arent overt, but they can be incredibly destructive. A poison in the workplace that isnt delivered in a bucket, but takes its toll drop by drop.
The program opens with an unhappy ending the resignation of a frustrated employee. We then explore the workplace responsible for creating this situation. The programs host engages and challenges the viewer with his strange perspective on our insensitive behaviors. He walks us through several examples of micro-inequities that could easily be avoided and then shares the key concepts for creating an inclusive and productive work environment.
