Intended Audience

Anyone with responsibility for or interest in expanding their diversity horizons.


Are you looking for an affordable, interactive way to deliver diversity training? In this session, we will experience the award winning, interactive diversity awareness program that is earning raves from both participants and facilitators.

Diversity Works is designed to get you up out of your seat and into station-based activities catered to distinct learning preferences and interaction types. Part experiential, part social, and part emotional, Diversity Works leverages the science of learning to create opportunities for conversations that matter.

Presented by Jillian Douglas of Idea Learning, this is not a sales pitch but rather an opportunity to try a tool that has been purchased by NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Toyota Manufacturing, and the State of Oregon Employment Department.

“It’s both showing diversity and the fact that in a ton of ways we’re the same. It was interesting that the learning was driven by what we were saying to each other in the moment rather than from what we’re hearing in a rote presentation.” – Participant

“Of all the things I have done around diversity, this is the thing my team liked the best. They really, really liked it. I’ll be leading another session soon.” - Eddie Gerlach- Toyota Manufacturing

“We have just finished our workshop and I felt compelled to call you to tell you that it was an incredible experience. The workshop was very well thought out. Everyone wanted to keep going and wished the workshop didn’t have to end.” - John Finch- Chandler School

Additional customers include:

  • City of Gresham
  • Costco Wholesale
  • Daimler Trucks North America
  • Lewis & Clark College
  • New Orleans Public Library (LA)
  • Oregon Employment Department
  • Oregon Lottery
