DEI Training Overview

Clear Law's DEI training suite supports positive employee engagement and includes three online training courses: Unconscious Bias, Microaggressions, and Bystander Intervention. While Clear Law recommends that employers train their employees on all three topics as part of regular professional development, you can also choose to train on one topic individually.

An effective diversity, equity and inclusion program should cover a wide variety of scenarios and potential situations that can occur in the workplace. The training needs to teach employees that everyone can be both a victim and a perpetrator of bias and/or microaggressions. Regardless of an employee's protected characteristics such as race, gender, disability, or age, they may also be the victim of bias or microaggressions based on other characteristics, such as height, weight, or appearance. Effective inclusion training programs will go beyond the basics and train employees on the variety of different biases they could hold and how to combat them.

Clear Law’s interactive online diversity, equity and inclusion training goes beyond detailing the benefits of an inclusive workplace to focus on practical steps employees can take to create a more positive workplace. Specifically, the courses included in this inclusion training program challenge learners to explore the nuances of unconscious biases, how to avoid and respond to microaggressions and how unwanted harassment in the workplace can be prevented with Bystander Intervention.

Unconscious Bias

Clear Law’s Unconscious Bias interactive online training goes beyond detailing the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace to focus on practical steps employees can take to create a more positive workplace and increase employee engagement.  Specifically, the course challenges learners to explore the nuances of unconscious, implicit biases, and how our own biases can impact our judgements and decisions about others at work.

The Unconscious Bias training addresses a wide variety of hidden biases, common examples are those based on race, gender, religion, national origin, disability, age, and sexual orientation.  The training also addresses biases based on a variety of personal characteristics such as height, weight, and attractiveness.

The training focuses on providing practical guidance that learners can implement immediately in their workplace to help reduce the negative impact of bias and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace culture.

Microaggressions

When we think of discrimination, we often think of blatant, intentional acts of bias. The problem of workplace discrimination, however, goes beyond overt, intentional acts of discrimination. Even if we don't mean to offend others, our words or actions can sometimes communicate bias and make others feel excluded. These subtle acts of exclusion are often referred to as "microaggressions."

In this course, you will learn:

  • What are microaggressions
  • How to identify common examples of microaggressions
  • How to avoid committing microaggressions
  • How to respond if you experience or witness a microaggression

Bystander Intervention

Bystander Intervention is when a witness, or bystander, steps in to diffuse harassment or other inappropriate behavior. Research has shown that of all the types of online training programs for the workplace, bystander intervention training is the one training most likely to have a measurable impact on decreasing harassment. Clear Law Institute's bystander intervention training teaches learners:

  • What the Bystander Effect is and what causes it

You will also learn about the three “I’s”

  • How to identify actions or statements that call for interruption. This includes harassment, discrimination, and microaggressions.
  • How to intervene or interrupt safely and effectively using strategies that work for you and the situation
  • How to follow up on the situation for maximum impact

Clear Law Institute offers a 1-hour version that complies with the Chicago law for annual harassment training.

Accessible to Users with Disabilities

Ironically, many employers violate the Americans with Disabilities Act when providing their employees with compliance training because the training is not accessible to users with disabilities. In recent years, the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) has brought several lawsuits against employers for, in part, not providing accessible training.

Clear Law Institute is the leading provider of accessible compliance training. Our training meets not only the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act but also the very strict requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA Success Criteria.

Live, Instructor-Led Training

In addition to the self-paced online training described above, Clear Law Institute also provides live, instructor-led training on diversity, inclusion, and unconscious bias.  These sessions are presented using video-conferencing software such as Zoom, Teams, or WebEx.

  • Clients choose instructor-led training:
    • To train all employees as an alternative to self-paced online training
    • To train a subset of their employees (such as their executive team), or
    • As a supplement to the self-paced online training.  (With this option, all employees take the self-paced training and Clear Law facilitates live discussion groups.)

Each of our instructor-led sessions is led by university professors who focus their research on DEI issues or employment lawyers with experience and expertise in diversity and inclusion efforts.

Policy Reviews and Consultation

Clear Law is committed to DEI training. In addition to providing online self-paced and instructor-led training, Clear Law is also available to:

  • Review or help create your DEI strategy and policies
  • Consult on your DEI efforts to establish a diverse and inclusive workplace
