EMPATHY BUILDING WORKSHOP

We take a positive approach to build healthy behaviors and habits.

WHAT IS AN EMPATHY BUILDING WORKSHOP?

It is our take on the traditional unconscious bias training. This virtual discussion leads participants through an interactive, immersive learning experience on diversity, equity, and inclusion, why it matters in the workplace, and gives participants empathy-building skills to create inclusive work cultures.

 

As new habits take time to form, this 6-week series includes 1hr workshops, of which weekly lessons build on each other.

WHY YOU SHOULD SIGN UP:

A 2019 Businessolver State of Workplace Empathy Study showed that more than 90% of employees say they're more likely to stay with an empathetic employer.

Oftentimes, however, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programming is  treated like a band aid — a one-time workshop, a paragraph in a handbook or a video during a new hire orientation. New habits take time to truly form. This 6-week series includes 1hr workshops, of which weekly lessons build on each other. Participants will also engage in interactive exercises and have the opportunity to apply their learnings during the workshops. 

WHO IS AN EMPATHY BUILDING WORKSHOP FOR?

  • Professional teams ready to take their DEI commitment to the next level.

  • Leaders and HR managers looking for unconscious bias training to help develop a more inclusive workplace for all.

  • Teams who want to be more connected and more effective.

  • Leaders and HR managers who want to create shared language, understanding and appreciation of DEI within their teams and workplace. 

WHAT YOU'LL BE LEARNING

Online work meeting
  • The different dimensions of diversity and how they show up within the workplace.

  • What is empathy and how you fit into the circle of empathy.

  • The definition and deeper understanding of implicit bias.

  • The Impact of social conditioning on behaviors and how conditioning effects daily decisions.

  • More inclusive and equitable HR practices.

  • How to put empathy into action at your workplace. 

The biggest impact really has been on building trust and empathy across the organization. I think that the workshop each week reminded us to think beyond the surface, to remember that everyone has a different background and that brings different viewpoints and comes with different beliefs and different ways of thinking.

—Devin Martin, Talent Acquisition Director, Bader Rutter

It was both an interactive learning experience as well as just me coming away with a broadened understanding of my fellow co-workers. I think that that's really invaluable.

—Chole Dunston, HR Specialist, Core Creative
