It is highly interactive and emphasizes positive ways each team member can start with awareness and begin taking steps to make a difference at work. This class was designed by teachers and educators with actionable strategies included within each micro-learning module. Video scenarios, questions and answers, and a test for understanding are just a few of the engagement features. The program teaches employees about the latest demographic changes, how to address unconscious bias, and inclusively communicate at work.
Our diversity trainer-led D&I programs are customized to meet specific needs of the organization, senior leadership, management, and staff. These onsite sessions equip participants with the skills to create a safe and engaging cooperative working environment and establish an inclusive culture, while remaining sensitive to individual viewpoints.

Why Individual Employee or Leadership Coaching
The following scenarios are common reasons HR directors call Diversity Builder for individual sensitivity coaching.
- A company hires a new supervisor who has not yet completed the corporate diversity training program onsite. Rather than incurring travel expenses and lost work time, the company opts to send the supervisor to a remote/online class with a dedicated trainer.
- HR received some reports that an employee was using racial slurs.
- A leader in the organization has made comments about women and pregnancy that are inappropriate. HR desires to act quickly and secure the best training for the leader for awareness and behavioral change.
- A manager uses abrasive words and lacks a communication filter. The tone and word choice have resulted in team members and colleagues distancing themselves. One of the team members reported the manager to human resources for creating a hostile work environment. HR decided training would be best from a development and logistical standpoint. Diversity Builder offered options of onsite or online coaching with a trainer in real time.
- An employee violates a company discrimination policy or code of conduct related to diversity or sensitivity. Examples include sending inappropriate emails, discriminating against a protected class, harassing another staff member, telling inappropriate jokes, displaying favoritism as a manager, verbalizing a racial slur, or using inappropriate language at work.
Other Reasons for Employee Coaching
- Part of a disciplinary action related to a performance management program
- Policy violation remedy
- Employee development opportunity

- Employee is new to the workplace and does not able to distinguish what is appropriate

- Court-ordered legal requirement as a result of sentencing by a judge or jury
