The Keys to Effective Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Education
Educating and upskilling employees is critical to bringing diversity, equity, and inclusion to life in your organization. But how do you know whether the DEI training you provide is having an impact?
After training hundreds of thousands of employees across more than 1,000 organizations, we’ve learned a lot about what works to move the needle. You can read our detailed takeaways in our whitepaper: The Keys to Effective Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Education

Here is a sneak peek of our key findings.
Effective DEI Learning is Ongoing
DEI learning does not happen overnight, it is an evolving journey over one’s lifetime. In an organizational context, that means training programs need to be ongoing and sustainable, while also accounting for the realities of employees’ time and how people learn best. “One and done” training does not work.
Effective DEI Learning
Drives Measurable Outcomes
DEI training should not only focus on education, it should be designed to drive three key, measurable outcomes:
  • Awareness: Increased recognition about an issue and its relevance to someone’s work
  • Motivation: People leave a training session feeling engaged and wanting to take action
  • Enablement: Increased enablement with specific skills and tools to contribute to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable culture
Effective DEI Learning is Blended
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to DEI learning that will work for every company or every employee. There are many different ways to deliver education, and the most successful organizations combine multiple modalities to account for how people learn best.
  • Asynchronous Learning: Scalable, self-paced training enables people to understand complex concepts on their own, while allowing space for self-reflection on difficult topics. Asynchronous learning is a powerful tool for embedding education into key processes (onboarding, performance management), for establishing foundational knowledge before a live workshop, and for sustaining learning between live touchpoints
  • Group-Based Learning: Live, interactive group discussions provide a powerful opportunity for people to engage in dialogue, practice skills, and develop shared experiences with colleagues
  • Resources to Sustain Learning: Checklists, guides, and tools that can be embedded into people’s workflows empower employees to translate what they’ve learned to action when it matters most
