The Diversity Challenge is an innovative software training and cultural audit tool
It can be used for small workshops (less than 10 people) or large events (up to 500 people at once)
In a fun and relaxed environment, teams compete to answer questions and solve scenarios relating to diversity and inclusion
The interactive, competitive experience, combined with world-class content leads to unmatched levels of engagement
The content varies in complexity and covers the full range of diversity issues...
Which means you can customise a Diversity Challenge workshop for any target group at any level of the organisation

There are a wide range of applications for the Diversity Challenge...
Customised for each country/region with local research
So how does it work, exactly?
Participants are divided into teams.
Each round, the wheel spins and lands on one of the categories
Teams submit their answer to the facilitator when time is up and explain their choice to the group
Teams attempt to solve multiple choice scenarios, within a time limit, by debating the details
Teams compete to be the winner!
This keeps participants engaged but also encourages open and honest debate as team members express their arguments for the different options in the scenario
After the scenario, the process focuses on organisation specific outcomes
Participants are challenged to consider what the issue raised in the scenario implies for them, their colleagues and their organisation...
The fully customisable Diversity Scorecard gives you the opportunity to set the context with images, data, policy extracts or even a video message
The Challenge can then be used to poll the attitudes and perceptions of leaders and employees as they anonymously respond to audit questions using the live Audience Response System
In the second half of the session, participants are given the opportunity to vote on those diversity and inclusion issues they consider to be the highest priority for the organisation…
...giving you insight into the key points of leverage for your ongoing strategy
Participants then tackle those high priority issues, breaking into groups to set short and long-term goals for the organisation and for themselves. This creates valuable take-away output from the session
Detailed reports can be produced in MS Word or MS Excel format to allow you to consolidate results and findings across a roll-out of sessions
