“Training has to be done in specific ways. If not evidence-driven, it will be ineffective and can easily make things worse.”
Michelle van Ryn, PhD, MPH. Founder & Lead Scientist
“Many inclusion, diversity & equity approaches to-date reflect a very superficial understanding, if not outright misunderstanding, of this complex body of knowledge. This has led to widespread failure of D&I efforts. Organizations are not only wasting resources – in many cases, things have gotten worse.”
Michelle van Ryn, PhD, MPH. Founder & Lead Scientist
“I can use my conscious ways of thinking to overcome implicit bias, if I know I have implicit bias and how it works.”
John Dovidio, PhD Lead Scientific Adviser
Training Services Committed To Achieving Real Change
The Institute for Equity and Inclusion Sciences (IEIS) is a partnership of scientists and professionals utilizing adult learning theory and instructional design principles to maximize learning, build skills, empower learners, and inspire change. We offer a variety of training and educational services including workshops, seminars, talks, and keynotes. These services are provided in multiple platforms including online, multimedia, and on-site training.
We acknowledge that each organization has its own set of unique characteristics, priorities, and concerns. Our team will work with your organization to determine the best strategy given your industry specific goals and tailor every learning experience to fit your needs. Structured support is provided as a part of our services to ensure continued progress toward your organization’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Our learning experiences reflect the most current science on unconscious bias and stereotype threat and give learners the skills they need to minimize the negative effects of these cognitive processes on personal performance and organizational success. By leveraging the most innovative and cross disciplinary research we are able to develop educational interventions that produce the most meaningful learning. Learning experiences use a narrative tone that joins with the participant as opposed to the method of being “talked at.” This allows us to present information and evidence using storytelling and multimedia that are more likely to result in a higher level of productive learning. We make these experiences easily accessible and time friendly with units taking approximately ten minutes to complete at a time.
EIS training and educational services are mission driven to change the way people think, behave, and interact.
