Summary of Session: Moving the Pendulum on D&I Education
Are you tired of the same old discussions on D&I education and ready to be engaged in some real dialogue, new solutions and where it needs to go? In a recent Kaleidoscope nationwide poll of D&I Practioners, 76% of the respondents stated that they are not satisfied with the impact D&I training is having on their organization. We want to make sure you have real impact on improving your workplace culture and produce bottom-line results with your D&I Education.
Learning objectives of the session:
In this interactive session we will discuss how to move beyond:

  • Stand alone D&I programs to a fully integrated approach linked to other key business initiatives
  • Classroom only to blended learning solutions that support adult learning and create systemic change
  • D&I Education as a singular training event and link it to competencies and behaviors that build in accountability and measurement
  • Awareness focus to skill development and personal responsibility for creating an inclusive work environment
  • A traditional focus on race and gender to true inclusion where white males are engaged in the discussion
