EMPATHY BUILDING WORKSHOP

Modern diversity & inclusion training from Colorful Connections.

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.
