ATD will release an updated DEI&B Education for Employees research report. This research will offer a refresh of the original report, which focused on organizational commitment, usage, content, delivery, and evaluation. New to the 2023 report will be a section that focuses on strategies and policies organizations are implementing for DEI&B Education for Employees. 

Key findings from the report include:

  • In organizations that offered DEI&B education, 94% of respondents said leaders were very or somewhat supportive of DEI&B educaiton. 
  • Less than half of organizations had a dedicated DEI&B function. 
  • 40% of organizations provided a dedicated DEI&B education budget. 
  • 95% of organizations provided education on organizational DEI&B policies and procedures. 

Primary Capability Covered: Cultural Awareness & Inclusion

Participation in this event qualifies for one (1) professional development point for recertification of the APTD and/or CPTD credential.
