Animals, salads, orchestras, houses — what do all of these items have in common? During the last 20 years, all have been used to describe or build relationships during diversity and inclusion training. But there has been an evolution in D&I training in strategy, execution and content.

Diversity Executive    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
