In April, Third Term was featured in the ATD Magazine for its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion section. ATD (The Association for Talent Development) is a professional membership organization supporting companies that focus on the development of knowledge and skills of employees around the world.

The April issue featured our Workplace Harassment course. Our course was created using the latest learning and audiovisual resources to help others achieve their full potential by improving their workplace environment and interpersonal skills.

While not a new concept, inclusivity and tolerance have become especially prominent topics in workforce training. Technology opened the door for seamless collaboration between people across the globe. Recent events, however, have highlighted a gap in how the workforce has been equipped to manage it.

This constantly shifting environment requires training that teaches empathy and imbues a level of understanding in a learner that becomes part of their behavior both in and out of the office.

So how do we train individuals to read a situation or another person and then equip them with the tools to both acknowledge their own experience biases and to see beyond them?

Let’s take a look at just some of the methods we’ve incorporated into our Workplace Harassment course.

Branching scenarios. The most obvious route is to present a learner with real-place scenarios, walking them through examples of commonplace conversations and occurrences. How do you respond when things get awkward or uncomfortable? Most anyone can pick the “correct” response from a list of options, but how do you adapt when the scenario redirects you to the “most often chosen” route?

Role playing. Let’s take the scenarios one step further. Imagine an interaction between a bully, a victim, and a bystander. By exploring these relationships from the point of view of each individual, we’re able to better understand the context that drives behaviors.

Self-assessment. Through our interactive quiz, you’ll explore how your thoughts and choices are driven by your own experiences. How inclusive are you, really? Can you identify whether harassment is present in a given situation?
