The majority of DEI training only acts as a short-term intervention and does not provide the impetus or reinforcement that is needed to change the way we think or act. Too often this training is simply an annual event that ticks off the box for corporate compliance.
For DEI training to be effective, it must be practical and relevant, gives the opportunity to practice and learn new habits, and provides ongoing support and nudges to embed consistent behaviours that create an inclusive environment.
Moreover, DEI training is most successful when assessments are used to tailor training to an organisation’s unique needs and measure progress over time.
At Symmetra, we recognise that changing the way people think and behave can be difficult.
This is why our team of DEI experts has spent years preparing DEI solutions that are proven to transform the behaviour and habits of individuals, teams, and leaders. We help our clients understand the importance of inclusion, reflect on their own biases, and then offer the needed support and tools to permanently reshape personal actions and mindsets.
