Focus: Diversity, Adversity, and Positive Action

"My district of salaried managers and I truly enjoyed your excellent presentation on Generational Diversity. You made it fun and educational for all while maintaining a high level of professionalism. My district manager and I were very impressed with the way you created a presentation catered to fit our culture here at Wal-Mart. We look forward to you doing the same for Wal-Mart’s corporate office!"

Action Steps:

Petey implemented a six hour course that included:

  • A session on Discrimination/Harassment Prevention
  • A session entitled The Great Divide of the Generations as it applies to Wal-Mart Management and Employee base
  • A session on Communication skills to be used regarding Diversity, Customer Service and minimizing misunderstandings

The management team increased their knowledge regarding mutual trust and respect of our differences, thereby creating the benefit of increased morale and profits. Open and meaningful discussions allowed for total company buy-in to the fair, legal, honest and ethical treatment of all persons as unique individuals.
