Lenora uses the characters of the Wizard of Oz as a metaphor to help you understand how you can use your brain, heart and courage to make a real difference in today’s multi-cultural world. This fun, yet thought-provoking message will inspire you to embrace the gifts you have and to value the gifts of others to increase your organization’s options for multicultural success. By realizing the power to make a difference is within each individual, you will discover ways to go beyond stereotypes and bias to create and sustain an environment that supports high productivity while celebrating differences. Lenora uses life-size stand-ups of the characters and music from The Wizard of Oz and The Wiz to create an entertaining learning environment.

This highly interactive, non-judgmental and fun program provides an opportunity for participants to discover their own level of knowledge and understanding of people who are different from themselves. By exploring the biases of our society's "isms", such as racism, sexism, ableism, and ageism, as well as homophobia and other prejudices that impede productivity in the workplace, participants will be better equipped to turn barriers into bridges and focus on performance when they return to their organization.

As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to:

• Improve their awareness of the impact of their behavior on others.
• Increase acceptance and value differences.
• Limit the influence of stereotypes on their personal actions.
• Use the S.T.O.P.™ technique to manage "culture collisions."
• Identify the four key dimensions of diversity development.
