Less DEIB training, more inclusive learning: Webinar slides

Heather Gilmartin Adams
Research Lead


  • Slides from 2022 webinar, “Less DEIB Training, More Inclusive Learning”
  • Some employee groups struggle more than others when it comes to finding, accessing, and participating in development opportunities
  • L&D functions can address these challenges to make employee development in their orgs more diverse, equitable, and inclusive

What can L&D functions do to truly drive DEIB efforts in their organizations?

We spent months diving into this question and shared some of our findings in this interactive webinar. (Spoiler alert: The findings are about how to make employee development itself—the systems and processes of how people learn—more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.)

Dani Johnson and Heather Gilmartin Adams from RedThread, along with Claire Herring, Chief Learning Officer at Blue Ocean Brain, shared our biggest insights, highlighted the best stories we heard, and chatted about the practical implications of the findings for L&D functions working on DEIB.
