The value of talking about inclusion in the workplace

To build a complete picture of the value EDI training can play in learning and talking about inclusion in the workplace, this post includes an infographic using delegate feedback relating to:

  • Pre-training thoughts

  • Course delivery

  • Course purpose

  • Training aftermath

Perhaps the most effective way of describing the positive experience an organisation can gain from offering inclusion in the workplace training is by using feedback from previous attendees.

Below we have included some feedback comments.  They help to tell a story.  A story which illustrates the value and increased awareness EDI training can provide.  Having been given the opportunity to attend training, these managers and employees discovered the value of learning and talking about inclusion in the workplace.  Attending training on this topic facilitated by one of our expert trainers, who create a safe space to talk, added to their experience.

The Value of Talking About Inclusion in the Workplace infographic - Transcription

The value of Inclusion and Diversity training in the words of some previous delegates.

  1. Pre-training thoughts
    “Initially I was sceptical - I didn't think I needed to be told how to treat colleagues - however I went in with an open mind and hoped I might learn something. [The course] was an enlightening and informative experience.”
  2. Course delivery
    “The course objectives were really clear and the course was delivered at the perfect pace to keep all of our attention.”
    “Good mix of theory and real life examples to illustrate important and complex issues.”
  3. Course purpose
    "Overall awareness of dignity/respect improves relationships with others and so a more positive working environment."
    “Learnt about equality and have been reassured that my employer is protecting me from bullying etc.”
  4. Training aftermath
    “It builds knowledge and confidence in dealing with various issues at work.”
    “It certainly adds to my skill set and will improve my working performance.”
    "Gave me lots of ideas on how to be a better manager - expectations exceeded. Good interaction with other managers.”
