For the past year, the nation has been engaged in uncomfortable conversations about race and culture. These conversations have prompted discussions in companies around the world. We saw a broad outpouring of support from corporate leaders over the past year who have denounced racial injustice and vowed to change the culture of their organizations to combat unconscious bias, microaggressions and in the end, promote an environment where team members can work collaboratively, improving teamwork, and increasing productivity.
Today, corporate leaders can look at any of the growing numbers of virtual reality (VR) and simulation tools available that recreate real-world scenarios. Through self-paced learning, these innovative technologies allow employees to test their knowledge of unconscious bias, understand how their words or actions may translate to microaggressions, and discover how to better respond and act in everyday conversations.
