For Immediate Release
December 26, 2008
Oakland, CA - NAAFA is pleased to introduce the NAAFA Size Diversity Toolkit. With this toolkit, NAAFA is bringing a new case for diversity and inclusion to the front door of corporate America. Diversity and Inclusion have become a business imperative for companies who want to stay and thrive in business today and in the future. No company can afford to have employees that are not fully engaged and innovative in the workplace. Size diversity needs to be added to the equation.
The Toolkit provides a paradigm shift on behaviors towards employees of size which can enhance the workplace and leverage wellness programs so that all employees independent of size can benefit, creating long lasting effects. In December, NAAFA began mailing these toolkits to strategically positioned officers of America's Fortune 500 companies as well as some key learning institutions.
NAAFA's Size Diversity Toolkit has been written and compiled by some of the country's leading experts on size diversity. The toolkit provides important information to human resource professionals that will supplement existing diversity education programs.
The toolkit contains the following:
Industry Leading Commentary
Business Case For Size Diversity
Real World Examples of Size Prejudice And Discrimination
Business Scenarios With Discussion Questions
