What Happens After Your Bias Training?

“The positive effects of diversity training rarely last beyond a day or two, and a number of studies suggest that it can activate bias or spark a backlash.”

Why Diversity Programs Fail
Harvard Business Review

Most organizations

find that while their bias trainings have checked an important box, the results are far from what they hoped.

While bias training can be a productive first step, thousands of research studies prove it is not enough. Inclusivity does not happen overnight. Along the way are mistakes and setbacks. How you respond can make or break employee trust, lead to resolution or escalation and make the difference between stronger relationships or heartache.

How Employees Respond to Disrespect

One of the crucial missing elements from bias and diversity trainings are tools for employees to respond constructively to a microaggression when it happens to them.

Without these tools, the employee suffers and microaggressions are perpetuated.
