Gender Awareness eLearning Program Sets Stage for Improved Productivity, Retention
March 10th, 2005 - Phoenix
The Scottsdale National Gender Institute™ in collaboration with New Angle Media today released its new e-learning program “Bridging Gender Differences.” Designed for employees and managers, the course reveals the gender-related misunderstandings that create obstacles to communication, teamwork, productivity and employee retention.
“Bridging the gender gap is critical as businesses risk losing or underutilizing women, who now comprise 50 percent of the professional and managerial ranks,” says Leslie Jenness, executive director of Scottsdale National Gender InstituteTM. “Companies can’t afford to have women leaving in droves or contributing less than their full potential.”
Available on demand with unlimited use for a 30-day period, the one-hour course provides a cost-effective, self-paced introduction to gender diversity awareness for men and women. The online program includes recorded instructor-led content, interactive exercises, downloadable tools, and a retention test. Other tools enable human resource managers to track course completion and to identify employee perceptions of diversity in the workplace. Price ranges from $149 to $295 per seat based on the number purchased.
As a stand-alone program or the foundation for broader gender diversity initiatives, “Bridging Gender Differences©” is designed as a first step in creating a “third culture” in the workplace where men and women work together effectively and productively.
