To move the needle when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion trainings, organizations need to move beyond click-through or lecture-based trainings and focus on interactive, empathy-driven programs.
Our IDEAs Seminars formats take a modular approach to building holistic Diversity Training programs that work with your organization and inspire reflection, connection, and action. Our various DEI seminars can be combined to develop comprehensive education, bolted on to your existing training programs, or rolled out individually.
The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded Clarkston Consulting status as an Accredited Provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs). For more information, please visit the IACET website.
