There are broadly two types of diversity training: awareness training and skills training. The first is about raising people’s awareness and helping them to see the world through the eyes of someone of a different age, race, gender, etc. The second involves specific exercises to help people build skills, such as communicating better with people from diverse backgrounds and reducing the levels of unconscious bias
in their decision-making.
Join Elaine Hand with Innerview Inc. for a program designed for HR Directors and owners of small companies to discuss how to implement and understand diversity and inclusion training that is not a silver bullet. Remember, whatever form it takes, however, the overall goal of diversity and inclusion training is generally to help create a work environment in which people of all backgrounds can feel comfortable and collaborate effectively.
