A decade and a half of experience in the diversity and inclusion trenches– We get it.
Diversity and inclusion training programs with an ROI focus
Most organisations are fatigued by diversity and inclusion solutions and programs. Leaders are supportive of diversity and inclusion and diversity training but it’s hard for it to be a real priority when there are so many expectations on leaders and what they are responsible for…what they really want is an inclusive workplace.
With almost 15 years’ experience in diversity and inclusion training we feel our clients frustration. We know that in order for diversity and inclusion to be a REAL priority we must demonstrate a bottom-line impact – and it must be simplified to support leaders to achieve a number of the expectations upon them.
Our current approach aligns to our quest to get to a REAL ROI. This has been developed though 5,000 leaders worldwide participating in our programs with significant results – and based on at least 10,000 conversations with leaders seeking to know what they really need to make this the way they operate.

About Emberin’s Diversity and Inclusion Training Programs
Emberin is a global leading organisation in diversity and inclusion training.
We have worked with over 250 of the largest organisations in the world over the last decade and a half to support them in moving towards an inclusive culture.
Our obsession has been to support organisations to get results.
Our frustration has been approaches to diversity and inclusion which get us nowhere. We have continued to push the envelope and take new approaches because we believe it’s not sustainable to keep trying the same approach and expect a different result.
And the results from diversity training are miserable when compared to the efforts which have been put in and the money that has been spent.
The truth is that the ROI of diversity and inclusion training programs, approaches and diversity initiatives globally has been minimal.
The approach which we take focuses on two simple elements:
Both approaches are focused on demonstrating an increased inclusive culture in a team within a short timeframe.
We cannot claim to have the Holy Grail for diversity and inclusion training programs – but we do believe we have moved closer to real impact and results in organisations by testing and experimenting with different approaches to creating an inclusive culture over 15 years.
In this time, we have had the privilege of conversations with over 15,000 leaders from every industry all over the globe, and we have mentored more than 35,000 people, many of whom have been members of ERGs.
Our current diversity and inclusion offering is the culmination of all of those experiences, with our north star being evidence of real impact in creating an inclusive culture.
