Welcome to Headway DEI Training!

We’re a registered 501c3 nonprofit providing science-based Diversity, Equity & Inclusion training that changes company culture from within. We’re disrupting the traditional top-down model so that anyone — employees, volunteers, facilitators & management, not just HR folks or consultants — can move their organization towards measurable progress.

Organizations spend billions of dollars every year on diversity training that doesn’t work. A 2019 analysis of nearly 500 separate DEI programs involving some 80,000 people found that traditional unconscious bias training doesn’t reduce biased behavior. It sometimes increases the likelihood of prejudiced decisions and discrimination.

That’s why Headway DEI Training relies on the best research in sociology, psychology and neuroscience to study what does work. We use scientifically proven techniques to increase awareness of inherent bias. We also teach what to do to change biased behavior, and how to avoid the mistakes that can prevent workplaces from becoming equitable and inclusive. We integrate evidence-based strategies into a set of actionable programs that work, centered around collaborative problem solving, healthy communication and behavioral change.

Our courses are designed for everyone — not just consultants & HR folks. We’re disrupting the outdated, ineffective model of liability-focused DEI so that anyone committed to workplace belonging can create measurable change from within.
