The Mix approach

You know your people. We know DEI. That’s why collaboration is key.

Mix has been trusted to design and deliver DEI training for some of the best-known brands in the world.

We don’t tell you that to brag, but so that you can be confident we know what works and doesn’t work when it comes to DEI learning. We bring you fresh ideas and measurable results to support your inclusion and belonging aspirations.

Each learner is diverse and your organisation, unique. That’s why we spend time understanding your culture and establishing what you want your people to know, feel and do as a result of their learning experience. This is particularly important with a topic like DEI, which can be emotive, but can also leave people unsure of what to ‘do’ on a day-to-day basis to be more inclusive.

We’re not interested in simple knowledge transfer. Nor are you. Together, we’re inspiring behaviour change.

DEI training is beneficial for all employees within an organisation, from entry-level staff to senior executives. Mix recommends a tiered approach, starting with leadership and management teams to ensure top-down commitment and support. Following this, training can be rolled out to all employees, with specialised sessions for HR personnel, hiring managers, and other key stakeholders. This comprehensive approach ensures that everyone in the organisation understands and contributes to DEI goals.

The duration of DEI training can vary depending on several factors, including the depth and breadth of the content, the format of delivery, and the specific needs of you organisation. Typically, DEI training sessions can range from a few hours to multiple days. Here’s a breakdown:

Short Workshops or Seminars: These sessions typically last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours and cover introductory topics such as understanding unconscious bias, fostering inclusive communication, or promoting diversity awareness. Short workshops are ideal for introducing employees to basic DEI concepts and sparking initial conversations.

Half-Day or Full-Day Training: DEI training sessions that span half a day to a full day allow for a deeper dive into a broader range of topics. These sessions may include interactive exercises, case studies, and group discussions to explore issues such as privilege, systemic biases, and creating inclusive workplace cultures.

Multi-Day Workshops or Retreats: For organisations looking for more intensive and immersive DEI training experiences, multi-day workshops or retreats may be conducted. These programs typically span 2 to 5 days and offer comprehensive training on topics such as inclusive leadership, cultural competency, and equity-centered practices. Multi-day workshops provide participants with ample time for reflection, skill-building, and action planning.

Ongoing or Series Training: Some organisations opt for a series of DEI training sessions spread out over weeks or months to allow for sustained learning and development. These sessions may be structured as weekly or bi-weekly meetings covering various DEI topics in-depth, with opportunities for continuous engagement and application of learning.

We’ll always work closely with you to design customised DEI training programs that meet your specific needs, ensuring that the duration and format are optimised for maximum impact and engagement.

Mix will support you in measuring the impact of DEI training through various methods, including pre- and post-training surveys to assess changes in knowledge and attitudes, feedback forms, and focus groups. Additionally, we’ll help you track key metrics such as employee engagement scores, diversity in hiring and promotions, and incidence of reported biases or discrimination cases. We provide ongoing support and follow-up sessions to ensure that the training leads to sustained behavioural changes and measurable improvements in workplace DEI.
