Building Diverse Teams

Bias can creep into the hiring and promotion processes, especially at the highest levels. Though most companies have made great strides in diversifying their staff, senior leadership remains a out of reach for some, for example only 4% of C-Suite positions are held by women of color (McKinsey Report on Women in Corporate America, 2021). Learning to hire outside homogeneous professional networks and disrupting systems of nepotism can ensure a more diverse and effective leadership pipeline.

The award-winning A Brighter Tomorrow training series proves that high-impact training can be as entertaining as it is effective. Using WILL’s Choose Your Own Journey® methodology and streaming-quality scenarios, the Brighter Tomorrow series is the simply the best training available to improve workplace culture.
