Diversity and Inclusion Training
Evidence-based Diversity and inclusion interventions
with insights from behavioral psychology and neuroscience
Diversity and Inclusion Training
Research continues to reaffirm the strong business case for D&I in corporate leadership and organizations. It demonstrably leads to a better working environment, from employee commitment and staff retention to deeper trust and untapped talent, all driven by a wider variety of different perspectives, knowledge, and skills.
Having worked with many companies in applying behavioral science, we have identified dozens of evidence-based diversity and inclusion interventions that will help you develop a culture in which your people can express themselves and your organization benefits from the variety of perspectives, knowledge, and skills.

- L&D departments
Why Diversity & Inclusion training?
Organizations at all levels struggle to translate D&I findings and initiatives into actual behavioral change and reach their D&I targets, often because the focus in traditional initiatives like diversity training lies too heavily on trying to change people’s minds. Instead, it’s more effective to change the systems and environments in which decisions are made.
The science behind our brain and behavior is researching which diversity and inclusion change interventions are most effective across all levels: individual, team, department, and organization. We will show you the most relevant ones for your situation, and train your team to apply them effectively.

Diversity & Inclusion in the Public Sector
We trained 45 government officials of a large department in the Dutch Ministry in applying evidence-based interventions to promote diversity and inclusion (D&I) on the working floor. Despite their best attempts, institutions can often fail to successfully engage in D&I due to behavioral barriers and unconscious biases in recruitment, selection, promotion, retention, and organizational culture. This training focused on overcoming these barriers with scientifically proven, measurable solutions from behavioral science.
A deep understanding of the science behind D&I and how to instill an inclusive culture in your organization.
Framework for change
A science-backed framework that helps you design, measure, implement, and scale D&I throughout your organization.
Evidence-based D&I interventions that drive systemic change applied to your unique business cases/challenges.
Diversity and Inclusion Training outline
We kick off with the science behind D&I that every team needs to know.
Find out how D&I is shaped in our brain and behavior
Identify how unconscious biases can block D&I initiatives and how to overcome them
Understand how changes in context shape an inclusive mindset and how you can leverage this
Learn how to achieve lasting and positive behavioral change by using a validated framework that aligns priorities, behaviors, and processes.
Learn to set clear and actionable priorities
Identify desired behaviors and turn them into scalable habits
Optimize systems and processes to reinforce changes
See how leading organizations applied Brain & Behavior to achieve successful change in cases like…
generating executive buy-in for D&I
creating a culture of speaking up
interrupting unconscious bias in meetings
Expand your Growth Mindset toolkit with step-by-step evidence-based behavioral interventions that help you…
- Improving inflow and mobility of minority groups
- Practising habits of inclusive leadership
- Debiasing recruitment or performance evaluation
By splitting up in groups, you’ll tackle change challenges unique to your organizations using newly learned tools and interventions. Examples of workshops are…
- Designing systems of feedback and learning
- Developing metrics to track D&I progress
- Creating psychological safety during crucial conversations
The training is highly interactive and we encourage questions and dialogue but we’ll make sure to reserve time to recap and deep dive into pressing questions.
Reviews from attendees
“Interesting approach based on neuroscience and different from other change management workshops.“
“Very concrete, with tangible tools and examples. And then applying the theory right away.“
“I loved the fact that somehow this is something that we can put into practice on our upcoming projects.“
“I really like the context/introduction provided, based on science and also the 3 tools provided that are very useful for our work.“
“Great to have break out sessions and really apply the knowledge in a snappy way; it sticks to mind having done that. The speakers were also really knowledgeable and the session was super engaging.“
“Speakers communication and way to share the messages was excellent. What I liked the most were definitely the activities and, in particular, the fact that they were adapted to NN challenges and context.“
“Useful tools and very practical hands on exercises, yet fun!“
“It has encouraged us to actively reflect on various types of bias in our work. And there are many!“
“Best combination of nerd and practical, super inspiring!“
