Going Beyond Diversity: A Call for Inclusion


Going Beyond Diversity: A Call for Inclusion


No matter the order the abbreviations are presented (ED&I, DE&I or DI&B), Equality, Diversity and Inclusion impact us all. Never has it been more critical to recognize and redefine EDI training in the workplace. It is vital that organizations recognize that belonging is a necessary part of workplace inclusion because it is a necessary part of the human experience.

For this Learning Pool webinar, Content Library Product Manager, Lauren Bradley was joined by Stella Chandler, Director of Development at Focal Point Training and Consultancy and Rosie Scott, Senior Learning Designer at Learning Pool. During the session, the panel had open conversation about the challenges of unconscious bias, tackling the challenge of making sure employees feel heard and what we can do to drive a positive culture of inclusion and belonging.

They also discussed the development of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training, how 2020 shifted the way we work, live and learn, and what we can do to support organizations in driving an inclusive culture.



During this session, the panel discussed:

The background of our approach to EDI training and the unforeseen challenges that were presented

The difference between diversity and inclusion and what we need to do to ensure both are valued and present in workplace culture

How organizations can utilize our new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training - not just as self-directed learning but to create an open and positive conversation for all
