After 2020, companies were faced with a decision - prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion or face numerous lawsuits, PR nightmares, and an extreme amount of backlash. Ultimately the optics of promoting DEI through one-off and, in turn, ineffective training became more important than creating an effective training program for employees. Now companies turn to boring powerpoints about unconscious bias and microaggressions to legally protect themselves and quite public criticism, but do those forced to sit through these trainings learn anything? Countless studies have shown that the effects of those trainings wear off in just a few hours or days hence, why FIG University was created. 

Designed to cut through all of the boring, stereotypical approaches to diversity training, FIG U breaks DEI into quick, straight-talk videos. No fluff. Each of our online DEI training courses are recorded so that you can work at your own pace, anywhere, anytime.

Basics of DEI 
Equity vs. Equality
Diversity vs. Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion, commonly referred to as “DEI.” What's it all about? It''s the practice of creating a safe, fair, and engaging environment by celebrating the differences we all have.

EQUITY is about providing everyone with what they need to succeed despite their differences in gender, race, ethnicity, age, national origin, religion, disability status, sexual orientation, education, or anything else. It means eliminating barriers that prevent the full participation of all your employees or groups. 

EQUALITY means even access and distribution of resources to individuals and groups. Everyone is treated fairly and justly. 

Diversity is a Fact.Inclusion is a choice. In this session, we'll provide clear examples of each and how they both affect your role as a leader.

Recap the months training. What actions can you take around DEI? what do you relate to more, diversity, equity or inclusion?
