Cultural Diversity Considerations in Health Care Organizations

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was established in 1965 and its purpose is to enforce federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information (n.d.).

For this Assignment, select three cultural diversity considerations HR departments may need to address, such as company culture, unconscious bias, potentially discriminatory hiring practices, etc. Acting as if you are in the role of human resources coordinator, examine the need for culture change, manager/employee training programs, and new policies to address your chosen issues. Describe how you would implement these changes in the workplace.
