Gender Inclusion Training

Build a culture of respect with gender diversity training in the workplace

Virtual reality (VR) has been proven to be a highly successful way to learn and practice difficult communication. This gender inclusion VR experience will challenge non-inclusive behavior and help employees to gain understanding and recognition of gender discrimination, while teaching them a perspective of inclusion and the benefits of diversity in the workplace. Training employees to challenge non-inclusive behaviors will help foster an inclusive workplace where diversity is valued.

What You'll Learn

This VR gender inclusivity training helps men and women to identify behaviors and statements that include bias. Within the virtual reality simulation, learners will experience what micro-aggressive statements feel like involving gender bias in the workplace. They will also be able to try out strategies to change these communications for better inclusion. The VR content includes:

  • Learning to identify gender offensive actions such as:
    • Interruptions
    • Bias laden comments
    • Excluding body language
    • Condescending comments toward the opposite gender
    • Marginalizing and minimizing statements
    • Sexist stereotypes toward men or women
    • Aggressiveness
  • Practicing challenging behavior that is not gender inclusive such as:
    • Building feedback on precise examples
    • Illustrating the impact of gender offensive comments objectively
    • Avoiding judgmental comments
    • Adopting positive body language
    • Suggesting ways to improve

The VR Experience 

In this gender inclusion VR training, the employee will enter an immersive learning virtual reality simulation where they experience a meeting with two colleagues, Sam and Sophie. The meeting is to catch-up on a project they’ve been working on together for a while. Sophie’s contribution is stellar whereas Sam is running a bit late on a couple of things. Rather than owning up to it, he’s attacking Sophie, using a variety of tactics from sexism hints to full-on bullying. The learner’s first task in this training is to observe and identify Sam’s behavior. Then, face-to-face with him, the learner will have to challenge his attitude and make him reflect on it so that he can transform his relationship with Sophie. This gender inclusion VR training ends with the employee able to review their scores for assessing Sam’s non-inclusive communication and the experience of challenging Sam to alter his thinking and communication to remove gender differences from the relationship. Employees can repeatedly work on these skills within the VR workplace to become inclusive and embrace gender diversity.
