Diversity & Inclusion Training is No Longer Optional

When it comes to diversity and inclusion training in the workplace, skeptics abound. Research and think pieces alike are pessimistic about the long-term results of diversity training. But for some companies, D&I training has come a long way from a standard, mandatory PowerPoint lecture.

Armed with powerful technology like virtual reality and multi-modal approaches, this next generation of D&I training teaches employees about unconscious bias and cultural competence in sustainable, meaningful ways affecting company culture and innovation from the ground-up.

This kind of D&I training should no longer be considered an afterthought, but rather as a way to drive real change, ensuring a pipeline of diverse talent that will foster innovation at your organization.

We spoke to leaders at Merck, BCG Digital Ventures, The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc, and STRIVR about how to create meaningful, business-driving D&I programming that’s more than lip service.

  • Use a multi-modal approach to D&I training
