A company has experienced several lawsuits as a result of equal employment opportunity (EEO) infractions. No diversity training has occurred within the company to date. As a newly promoted manager in this organization, you are given the responsibility to determine the effects of implementing diversity training for all levels of the employees in terms of future litigation and EEO problems.

Outline an HR strategic plan that includes diversity training for all employee levels.
Identify specific diversity training segments to address the management’s perspectives.
Use a change model to persuade management to implement the needed modifications to the organization’s practices.
Propose a brief training outline of diversity content.
Recommend a comprehensive method of evaluation to ensure the training will create the needed changes.
