Diversity Training

  • HBR: Does Diversity Training Work the Way It’s Supposed To?
  • "What did we find? Let’s start with the good news. The bias-focused trainings had a positive effect on the attitudes of one important group: employees who we believe were the least supportive of women prior to training"
  • "But did the training change behavior? This brings us to the bad news. We found very little evidence that diversity training affected the behavior of men or white employees overall—the two groups who typically hold the most power in organizations and are often the primary targets of these interventions"
