Seven Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources for Corporate Training Programs

Updated: Mar 25, 2023

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training is a type of corporate training that focuses on creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. The training aims to educate employees on topics related to diversity, such as race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, and culture. It also aims to raise awareness of unconscious bias and help employees understand the impact it can have on decision-making and interactions in the workplace.

DEI training typically covers a range of topics, including:

Understanding diversity, equity, and inclusion: This includes understanding the definitions of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as their importance in the workplace.

Unconscious bias: This covers understanding unconscious bias and how it can impact decision-making and behavior in the workplace.

Inclusive communication: This covers using inclusive language and avoiding microaggressions in communication.

Cultural competence: This covers understanding and appreciating different cultures and how to work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds.

Allyship: This covers understanding how to be an ally to underrepresented groups and how to create a more inclusive workplace culture.

DEI training can be delivered in a variety of formats, including online training modules, in-person workshops, and one-on-one coaching sessions. The goal is to create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace culture that values diversity and treats all employees fairly and equitably.

Do Remote and Hybrid Workplaces Need Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training?

Yes, remote and hybrid workplaces also need diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training, just like traditional in-person workplaces. The fact that remote and hybrid workplaces rely on digital tools and technology to communicate and collaborate doesn't change the need for DEI training.

In fact, remote and hybrid workplaces may even require more intentional efforts to promote DEI, given the potential for employees to feel disconnected and isolated from one another. Remote and hybrid workplaces also create unique challenges for managers and team leaders, such as managing diverse teams across different time zones and cultural contexts.

DEI training can help remote and hybrid workplaces create a culture of inclusion, where all employees feel valued and respected regardless of their backgrounds. It can also help remote and hybrid teams build stronger relationships, promote collaboration, and enhance creativity and innovation.
