PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Diversity Works is a practical solution for organizations that need diversity and inclusion awareness within their teams, but just don't have the resources.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management's SHRM Survey Findings: Diversity and Inclusion (2014), "Devoting staff specifically to diversity and inclusion may not be viable for all organizations, particularly because only larger companies tend to have resources for those positions."
Diversity Works, a 3-hour interactive workshop created by the adult learning experts at Idea Learning Group, brings awareness of diversity and inclusion concepts to your workplace. It arrives in a ready-to-go kit with everything you need to introduce diversity & inclusion at a price point intended to make it accessible.
Each kit includes materials for up to 25 participants:
- One setup guide to ensure all the moving parts set just right
- One facilitator's guide designed for ease of facilitation
- USB with instructional video and slides to help participants understand this unique methodology
- Color-coded content envelopes make it simple to set up and re-use materials
- Primer and pre-evaluation materials (1)
- Workshop introduction materials (1)
- Journey of Diversity game materials (1)
- Debrief and post-evaluation materials (1)
- Color-coded activity station materials with learner instructions (9)
"What's really great about this is that I can run it. I need a handful of people, but I don't need outside expertise to run this workshop," says Eric Oslund, Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center. "Anybody can run this, which is great."
Diversity Works is designed to get adult learners out of their seats and into station-based activities catered to distinct learning preferences, interaction types, and technology options. Part experiential, part social, and part emotional, the Cafeteria Learning style model encourages learners to explore and absorb content at their own speed and direction. It puts learners in the best position to succeed.
"It's both showing diversity and the fact that in a ton of ways we're the same," says a Diversity Works participant. "It was interesting that the learning was driven by what we were saying to each other in the moment rather than from what we were hearing in a rote presentation."
