Intentional Inclusion

Diversity Builder trainers developed the term intentional inclusion. We learned early on that inclusion in the workplace requires a purposeful action-based plan focused on effective best practices. Positive change does not just happen.

Reimagine your Workplace Culture

The first training we do with a company often sets the foundation for respect in the workplace. Learners recognize they are each accountable in taking steps that may fall outside of their comfort zone. When they work together and make progress, the reward is big – A workplace culture of intentional inclusion.

“As an HR Director and Vice President of a national building technology firm and real estate company, we sought a training company who could bring personalized solutions to the table, engage employees, and partner in producing sustainable change within the company.  Our real estate firm is committed to providing training opportunities and career growth to employees.  Diversity Builder led two company-wide onsite training projects, one on unconscious bias and the other on harassment prevention. They also were able to bring other workplace training topics to our teams as a value-add, such as team building and effective communication. In addition to the group training, they provided additional training support to individual managers through both remote and onsite coaching to help develop our leadership team and address time-sensitive challenges.”

A Different Approach

It all starts with awareness. Once the foundation of comprehension is set, it is time to turn understanding into action. First employees gain awareness of inclusive and appropriate behaviors, next the level of sensitivity rises. Using skills acquired in training, employees will start leading by example with inclusive conversations and behaviors. With leadership’s endorsement and support our trainers build programs that include best practices that empower employees to speak up and use positive bystander intervention techniques to collaborate with co-workers. As employees work together to be accountable to the culture they wish to achieve, fewer harassment or discrimination claims arise and employees work issues out themselves, with fewer trips and complaints to the HR office. Choose from a list of our vast training topics.

Online eLearning Options

The online option complements group instructor-led or webinars as an integral part of a blended learning approach and for employees who work at home or remotely. Effective online classes are an attractive solution for companies who have employees who are in call centers or work at scattered locations who cannot easily allocate time or travel for educational initiatives. Similarly, these classes are a good first step for on-boarding new hires or scheduling employee development for shift workers.
