Podcast: Michelle Johnson on Creating a Culture of Acceptance in the Workplace

In a new American Management Association podcast, Michelle Johnson, creator of the “Diversity Diva” newspaper column, a former employment attorney, and author of The Diversity Code: Unlock the Secrets to Making Differences Work in the Real World, talks about workplace diversity.

If you have to ask if a certain behavior is discriminatory, chances are, there’s already a problem. For every discrimination lawsuit, there were many more instances where discrimination occurred and was not reported. Workplace discrimination is about more than the standard list of minorities that are protected by law. Everyone who comes in to work has a different worldview. Moreover, if a person has a different way of working from the person in the next cubicle, that should be respected. In her new book, The Diversity Code, Michelle Johnson lets us know that it’s more than following a simple set of rules, each company needs to create a culture of acceptance.
