Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Resources

Diversity Equity Inclusion

There is not a one-size-fits-all approach or guide to effectively create and enhance your workplace's diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. Looking at your efforts as an opportunity and not an obligation to create a culture of belonging, respect, and trust will take time, tough conversations, and acknowledgement of your biases. It’s a journey for both you as leaders, employees, and your business as a whole – not just the right thing to do.

The Village can assist in your organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts with a variety of training topics. These topics are most effective when tailored to your organization’s specific needs. Please contact The Village  or call the Client Services Associate at 1-800-627-8220 to consult with a trainer regarding a custom topic.
