I read an article recently on the rise of ‘hybrid working’ and the impact of the workplace as parts of the world begin the journey of returning to some version of normality. For employees, whether they’re remaining working from home or returning to the workplace, the hope is that they are better able to balance their professional, personal and home lives. For organizations, it means that offices and workplaces have the potential to develop into hubs of innovation, collaboration and networking. But what happens to socialization, belonging and equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace?
Learning Pool announced in May 2021, that we are partnered with Focal Point to develop our new off-the-shelf Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Collection, bringing together a broad range of subject matter experts to create an elearning collection based on human centred conversations and in-practice actions and responsibilities
Never has this been more critical to recognize and redefine training on equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging. 2020 was a year of change, COVID exposed inequities in how we live, how we learn and how we work.
All over the world, people may be experiencing isolation or feeling excluded for many reasons. As we all move forward and deal with the current crisis, it has sparked energy to recognise and push for diversity & inclusion through understanding and action. However, the real need is to ensure that everyone feels supported, included and valued inside and outside of the workplace.
Our new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion collection takes elearning in an innovative direction of impactful and practical lessons. These lessons not only bridge knowledge gaps and drill down into skills and actions, but also brings the content to life by tapping into lived experiences and conversations in a similar way to our The Uncomfortable Truth and The Uncomfortable Conversation lessons.
Our training focuses on two key factors to achieve impactful and practical lessons:
A supportive social network and community at work can act as buffers against stress and even depression. It is important for organisations to recognize that belonging is a necessary part of workplace inclusion because it is a necessary part of the human experience. The conversational style of learning design posing the questions people want answers to in a safe environment.
The practice of concentrating on the small and large actions that are an important part of inclusion and allyship for all team members, line managers and senior management. Ensuring that the responsibilities are clear and the practical advice offers a real-world and personal benefit to the learner and organization
