At Riverstone bringing their beliefs to life, is the key to ensuring they make sure people can live the life they want to live.
One part of this, is their mission of ‘Respecting Individuality’, which covers: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Unconscious Bias, Cultural Intelligence, challenging ourselves and others and creating an inclusive work environment.
They wanted to increase the focus internally on EDI, specifically with training sessions, helping the team to explore their unconscious biases and learn how to work effectively and be comfortable in diversity.
The sessions were to be split into 2:
Goal for the Leadership team: To establish their biases and be able to self-check and hold each other, and their teams, accountable if their biases are impacting decisions or conversations.
Goal for the wider team: To increase self-awareness of own biases and be able to hold other colleagues accountable.
We were tasked with bringing their objective of ‘Respecting Individuality’ to life.
Design and delivery of two courses focussed on unconscious bias and EDI, with an aim to enable team members to make decisions and hold conversations with their own biases or those of others recognised, appreciated and/or mitigated to truly respect individuality.
These courses were aligned with the key messaging and branding of Riverstone.
The first people who attended the training was the members of the Exec Team, as to fully impact the culture, the leadership team need to pave the way for business success.
Each course was interactive throughout, utilising breakout sessions and polls, and centred around thought provoking discussion and facilitation to maximise learner engagement.
To support the embedding of this training and maximise the behavioural change, supporting pre and post work was provided.
Part of the training was built into the recruitment and onboarding of staff, to establish the correct culture and behaviour early in the journey.
