What’s trending in learning? May 2024

This month, we're shining a spotlight on inclusion, providing course recommendations, and introducing new content providers to help you foster a more inclusive and safe learning environment.

Companies with strong D&I programs are proven to be 22% more likely to be seen as industry leaders, with the added bonus of attracting top talent. These companies also benefit from high-impact learning cultures, outperforming other learning and development (L&D) teams by 24%. This shows the vital role D&I plays in boosting organizational success and creating a culture of continuous learning and development. On top of that, the challenges that 78% of neurodiverse individuals face within learning environments, like social integration, learning, and communication difficulties, tell us how crucial it is to create truly inclusive spaces.

It's clear that inclusion isn't just about doing the right thing; it's a critical strategy for fostering innovation and securing a competitive edge. So, are you focusing on inclusion? We'll help you...

4. Inclusion in Meetings by Symmetra (10 mins) 

Inclusion in Meetings

Diversity of thought quite simply means people with different backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge sharing their perspectives — and very often that's done in meetings. It's in meetings that some of our most important opportunities for learning lie and where many important decisions are made. Ensuring meetings are inclusive and effective in tapping into the power of diversity is one of the most important steps one can take towards building a more successful team and company.

In this interactive, game-based course, you'll learn practical steps to make your meetings more inclusive, so that people feel heard and the best ideas are voiced.

5. 4 Lessons about Inclusion and Unconscious Bias by Seven Dimensions (10 mins) 

4 Lessons about Inclusion and Unconscious Bias

4 Lessons About Inclusion and Unconscious Bias is a video that explains unconscious biases — the prejudices we have and our tendency to make judgments about individuals or groups without being fully aware of what we are doing. Even the most open-minded individuals can have underlying, unconscious beliefs or assumptions that trigger automatic, skewed judgments about other people.

In this video, psychologists Eve Ash and Peter Quarry explain that to create an inclusive workplace, we need to identify our own unconscious biases, and learn strategies to make sure we don't create barriers to inclusion. Inclusion is accepting, showing respect, and giving fair treatment to everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, neurodiversity, learning styles, religious beliefs, culture, disabilities, appearance, and so on.
