Training on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion needs to be both relevant and realistic. It is important to point out the advantages for companies and organizations that are practicing it, without making employees feel like they are being lectured to or scolded.
The way DEI is presented is the key to success. What you don’t want to do is have the attendees leave the training feeling guilty. What you do want to do is have them understand the potential benefits and take an interest. In our training, we discuss the advantages a more diverse and inclusive workforce can provide, while acknowledging the skepticism that is natural and can hold back progress.
When an organization opens itself up to more non-traditional candidates; those with a handicap, those considered too old or too young, or persons of different skin color, ethnicity, or background, it realizes direct benefits. The broader the range of candidates, the better opportunity to hire the most capable person. We point out that one of the advantages of a more diverse workforce is the ability to connect with a broader and more diverse marketplace, increasing the potential business for goods, products, or services.
Our method is to explain, create discussion, and engage. Attendees come away with a better understanding of the benefits of DEI, without ever feeling coerced or bullied.

Richard's training was once again fantastic! He really does an excellent job of keeping the group engaged throughout the training. I'm always amazed at how many compliments I get on the training after. In fact, our CEO joined the first training on Tuesday 9/15 just to compliment Richard on his presentation and how much he got out of it last year. Thank you again!
Your training was the best we have ever had - on any topic! It's because the trainer kept people engaged and interested, and they learned much more than usual.
Thank You Richard for your amazing job! You make us laugh, learn and be proactive! Thank you again.
I have received many compliments about the sexual harassment training. The trainers were very entertaining and the employees appreciated that they provided the training in both English and Spanish. Your live training was a lot more enjoyable than virtual training.
Richard was excellent! He was engaging, informative and entertaining. Following the training multiple employees came to me to share their positive feedback. Many have completed SH training's at prior companies and have never had a better way of delivery. We will absolutely be using your team again for future training's.
