ESPN wanted a course to provide training for ESPN employees on many aspects of diversity and inclusion. The course was intended to increase learner awareness and skill, for dealings with fellow employees and for a better understanding of the perspectives of customers.
With its partner IBIS, Illumina developed a course to make learners aware of the many different facets of a person’s make-up, and sensitize them to behaviors that include or exclude colleagues. Given the visual emphasis of ESPN’s work, the course makes extensive use of video segments for education and for exercises. There are also a number of graphic tools included in the training, such as the diversity wheel pictured in the screenshot.
