A Partnership between Diversity Factor and CanopyLAB

Diversity is a fact. Inclusion is a strategy. The key to harnessing the powers of diversity is to build inclusive environments, where everybody feels safe and can be their true self.
Diversity is a fact. Inclusion is a strategy. The key to harnessing the powers of diversity is to build inclusive environments, where everybody feels safe and can be their true self. When we get to that inclusive sweet spot, we will start to see the powerful effects of diversity; happier employees, more innovation and increased financial performance.
Who is Diversity Factor?
Diversity Factor is a full-service agency that helps organisations achieve innovation, engagement and growth by developing and implementing diversity and inclusion strategies. We provide training, network, analyses, recruitment, communication, strategic solutions and offer you support from ideation to implementation.
We believe that organisational excellence is linked to a diverse and engaged workforce, and we help you create the environment where diversity thrives. Our goal is to help companies and organisations build inclusive environments, where diversity thrives. And that way ensure a more equal and inclusive society.
Our approach is positive, practical and intersectional. We support you from ideation to implementation and we work together to tailor-make our solutions fit your unique needs.
Through our partnership with CanopyLab, we have designed an online training course focusing on diversity and inclusion and how we design and create inclusive workplaces, where every employee can go to work being who they truly are.
Diversity Factor has designed a free course on the LAB titled The Inclusive Sweet Spot. All three modules have a focus on diversity and inclusion. Here is a rundown of the course:
Unit 1: Why is diversity important?
What is actually the fuss about diversity and inclusion. Why is gender equality a UN sustainable development goal? And why do you even need to care about it.
Unit 2: What does diversity mean for your business?
Diversity has a huge impact on your business’ performance. This unit will go through why from the (employer) branding process over recruitment to the daily operations.
Unit 3: Creating inclusive working environments
Only by creating inclusive workplaces can we reap the benefits of diversity.
News! Diversity Factor will facilitate an online workshop of 2 hours, where research and data on inclusion will be presented, hereunder how to deal with privilege and unconscious bias. The online workshop will focus on how to build inclusive work environments. Since the workshop is online through Zoom, 10 participants can take part in the workshop. You can sign up here.
