Businesses have continued to make commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion -

Yet many seem lost on creating an inclusive workplace. Through this training, participants will learn the basics of DEI, equity vs. equality, and diversity vs. inclusion.  Participants will leave with a better understanding of their role in creating an inclusive workplace. 

There are two kinds of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training.

  • Other DEI companies

    Ones that feature boring powerpoints on unconscious bias and discrimination that teach you nothing new or valuable.

  • FIG Strategy & Consulting

    Ones that make you confront your biases, build the case for DEI, and actually teach you something.

“I felt the course from FIG was super comprehensive and helpful. Many of us think or assume. we never offend others when we actually may unintentionally. The course should be suggested to business leaders.”
