Research shows that organizations spend $8 billion dollars a year on diversity and inclusion training programs. Yet, diversity and inclusion teams often struggle to measure performance outcomes and behavior change after formal training is complete.  One reason for this is the lack of reinforcement of core training concepts. Research has shown that if not reinforced, up to 79% of content is lost within a month.

In reality, D&I training is never “complete”. With workforces and workplaces that are ever changing, this vast practice area requires continuous reinforcement and assessment to identify knowledge gaps. By helping employees learn how to embrace diversity, organizations will drive innovation and deliver long term,  tangible benefits to customers, employees and shareholders alike.

Join us for this complimentary webinar where Kari Heistad, CEO of Culture Coach International, and Meredith Odgers, Director of Marketing at Qstream, will discuss innovation in diversity and inclusion through the lens of microlearning, engagement, reinforcement, and measurement.

Attending this webinar, you'll take away:

  • How to deliver engaging, continuous reinforcement of D&I concepts and behaviors
  • Innovative methods to surface employees’ understanding of D&I in practice  across diverse and multicultural teams
  • New ways to  measure impact of diversity and inclusion programs
