Types of diversity training programs

Diversity training programs can vary widely, encompassing everything from foundational awareness sessions to deep-dive workshops focused on specific aspects like unconscious bias, cultural competency, and allyship. Some programs are designed for general employee populations, while others are tailored for leadership or specific teams, aiming to address the unique challenges and opportunities within different organizational layers. Interactive and experiential learning methods are often employed to maximize engagement and effectiveness.

How To pick the best DEI training programs & companies

Choosing the best DEI training programs and companies involves considering several key factors to ensure their effectiveness and alignment with your organization’s goals. Look for programs that:

  • Offer customization to fit your organization’s specific needs and cultural context.
  • Provide evidence-based content, drawing on the latest research and best practices in the field.
  • Include interactive and practical components that encourage active participation and real-world application.
  • Are facilitated by experienced and credible trainers with a deep understanding of DEI issues.
  • Have positive reviews or testimonials from past participants or client organizations.
  • Demonstrate a clear commitment to follow-up support and resources to sustain learning and implementation over time.

By focusing on these criteria, you can identify DEI training programs and companies that will offer meaningful, impactful learning experiences for your organization.

Tips on getting started on DEI training
