TOP REVIEWS FROM OPTIMIZING DIVERSITY ON TEAMS
it helped me to remember the importance of diversity. Many times we tend to prefer teams with less diversity just because it is easier to manage. This course is a good reminder of what should be done
In general the topic of diversity is very important and was reviewed from many different points, I was however missing a balance between issues for different groups of people.
The course is very well designed and presented. It is very impressive and helpful that all real life examples are discussed in the coursework and interviews.
Good course for understanding D&I in deep level. Very practical to implement D&I in organization.
