Awareness, understanding, commitment and action – these are the pillars that make up diversity and inclusion training at Washington University. Through interactive and experiential training, employees are learning how diversity impacts the university.

Employees can participate in four levels of training, starting with Diversity and Inclusion 1.0. Each level builds on concepts to help participants grow and work toward a concrete approach for creating positive change within their school, department, campus and even the external community. In the end, employees can leave with a plan of action.

Employees can sign up for an open session, or check with their department for customized sessions to schools and units.

The sessions include:

  • Diversity 1.0 – Awareness
  • Diversity 2.0 – Understanding
  • Diversity 3.0 – Commitment
  • Diversity 4.0 – Action
