5-7 pages – No PowerPoint is needed here! – As a new member of a top management consulting firm’s diversity team,  one of your responsibilities is to conduct training on diversity  trends. Consultants use this training in their management practices with  Fortune 500 companies.

You are asked to lead a training session next week. The topic is “The  Global Demographic Trends Impacting Diversity.” The training will be  presented to mid-level managers in your firm. The purpose of the  training is to inform the management consultants of the latest changes  in worldwide demographics relative to five key diversity areas of  interest and provide recommendations for managers on sustaining a  diverse workforce.

Prepare a seven to nine slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation on this topic. Include a discussion of the following:

  • Diversity Trends
    • Population trends
    • Working-age population movements
    • Racial and ethnic trends
    • Sexual-orientation trends

Include detailed speaker notes with your presentation that fully explain each point and justification for your recommendations.

Use at least three resources to justify your responses. Apply current  APA standards for writing style to your work.  Include a title slide  and reference slide(s) in addition to the main slides.

By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.
