Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion Training Online

Diversity and inclusion training plays an important role in establishing an organization’s commitment to a diverse workplace and setting the tone for the corporate culture. To ensure that diversity and inclusion messages are received effectively and that employees and managers embrace training on these topics, it is important to find the right balance between diversity and addressing the legal concerns.  The correct balance helps all employees understand the importance of diversity initiatives and the organization’s commitment to fairness and respect.

NAVEX Global’s two versions of Diversity & Inclusion online training—Diversity & Inclusion Training for Managers and Diversity & Inclusion Training for Employees —help organizations succeed in an increasingly diverse, global and competitive workplace.
