Speaker Talk Title: ‘Diversity Training Days’ don’t work. So how do you design a program that makes things better?


Keynote Description:

Backed by data and evidence from the behavioural, social and cognitive sciences, Dr. Aaron Barth, Founder and President of Dialectic, will explain the reasons behind the truth we all intuitively know: One-day diversity training doesn’t make our workplaces more inclusive, diverse, or equitable – and can actually have the opposite effect.


He’ll share evidence-based secrets to creating education that beats bias, improves inclusion for diverse groups, and delivers real, measurable business results. Dr. Barth’s keynote will highlight D&I Learning Snippets, a program he has helped progressive organizations implement with demonstrable success.
