    Can You Train Your Way to Workforce Equity?

    In the most successful organizations, Diversity, Inclusion, and Cultural Competency are core values. News events in the past year bring to mind the question of what is effective workforce training.  Does an all day, self-directed program work? What about traditional classroom work or non-traditional “training,” such as mentorship programs?  Indeed, training is just one part of a multifaceted effort when recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. Given that one size that does not fit all, what guidelines and resources are available to help select effective training on these core values for your workplace? What are key points to consider when recommending a program to your business partners? Our expert panelists will help answer these questions, as well as share the do’s and don’ts of effective training and how to nest it in a larger, company -wide effort to create an equitable organization.
