Does your company have diversity and inclusion (D&I) training in its learning management system (LMS)?  As the pandemic persists, organizations are realizing this training needs to be blended with practical real-life experiences. Is there an active D&I committee funneling best practices in your organization? Are resource groups in place where employees can safely express their concerns? More importantly, do your leaders have D&I metrics to measure the success of that training?

These are definitely top priorities for learning leaders in 2021 and should be one of the reasons you join us for this Training Industry L&D Insider Series session. You are in for a treat, as your presenter, Tish McFadden, head of people and culture at Maryland Oncology Hematology, facilitates an eclectic presentation to bring D&I to life within your organization.

This interactive session will provide easy-to-understand insights on:

  • Why one-dimensional online training is not the most effective for cultural or social topics.
  • Unconventional ways to pair your online D&I training with other blended learning to make D&I come to life in your company’s culture.
  • Securing metrics for measuring the success of your blended learning for D&I in order to achieve your organization’s goals.
