About this session
In today’s ever-changing world, people from diverse cultures and backgrounds are coming to live and work together. To serve customers and clients from diverse backgrounds, businesses are required to employ staff that can understand the needs of such clientele. Further, employers need to understand the needs of a diverse workforce, so that they are not faced with a constant revolving door of employees, which would result in low employee morale, lack of productivity and eventual lack of profitability.
For the past few decades, Canada has seen people immigrating to the country from all parts of the world. Included in these immigrants are a very large number of highly qualified individuals who are capable of serving clientele around the world. It is predicted that in the coming years, 33 percent of the new jobs in Canada will have to be filled by immigrants due to baby boomers beginning to retire and low Canadian birth rates. Organizations that want to succeed and prosper must be able to recruit, retain and successfully lead a multicultural workforce in the 21st century.
And at the same time create cultural harmony where people from different cultures, religions, sexual orientation, disabilities, etc. are made to feel welcome and respected.
Participants will walk away from this presentation with the following key concepts:
Gobinder Gill is a #1 Best Selling author on Amazon for "Achieving Prosperity Through Diversity". His second book, "Stolen Moments of Hope " will be published by motivational Press later this year. He has been voted as a “World Class Speaker” at the 2016 High Impact Speaking event in Montreal, Quebec.
Since the mid-1980's Gobinder has worked in many facets of the media dealing with diversity issues. His experiences cover all facets of radio, television, film, and print. Gobinder holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, B.C.
He was a researcher and reporter for CBC television, contributed freelance articles for the Vancouver Sun and wrote a weekly syndicated multicultural column for the Metro Valley Newspapers. As a journalist, he has interviewed many high profile personalities including Mother Teresa.
In 2013, he spoke at the TEDx Stanley Park in Vancouver (now on YouTube) Diversity: Evolution of the Unthinkable. Then, as a program director for TEDx Stanley Park in 2015/16, he assisted in selecting and coaching speakers.
In addition to appearing in films and television commercials, Gobinder has worked as a Set Dresser on such shows as Dr. Doolittle, Air Buddies, and Psych.
Gobinder's purpose and passion is to motivate and inspire others to embrace our differences and similarities. He trains organizations in the art of Diversity and Cultural
Sensitivity to bring greater harmony, productivity, and profitability in the workplace. He teaches his clients to make a shift in their attitudes toward others by approaching them with the recognition that we are all different, gifted and follow different journeys - and that, there is much we can learn from each other. He encourages businesses, CEOs, HR personnel, managers, and supervisors to view Diversity in the Workplace as a business opportunity and not as a hindrance.
