Diversity & Inclusion Training for Organizations

Diversity training for private companies, non-profits and government organizations


Diversity exists in every organization, community and group.

Research and experience from around the world show a direct connection between successfully managing the organization’s diversity, improving employees’ sense of belonging, increasing creativity and improved business performance.

In Israel’s highly diverse society, employing a diverse workforce without the right approach for integrating and including them in the organization, or providing service to diverse customers, can cause difficulties and make the diversity a burden rather than a value.

The Merchavim Institute holds workshops for managers and teams to improve management in diverse environments, increasing the sense of belonging of diverse employees, the creation of a safe environment, increased trust in the organization and guarantee of successful inclusion and integration over time. Additionally, the workshops help organizations conduct themselves better with diverse audiences.
