Our DEI Toolkit is purposefully designed to:
Be a free, “off-the-shelf” resource for IFPA members.
Provide a general framework and practical resources to support individual and team learning and organizational development.

The Business Case for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Staff Orientation & Learning
IFPA has created an on-demand, online learning course for members that can be integrated into your company’s staff orientation, onboarding and training.
Module 1: What Do Diversity and Inclusion Mean?
Participants learn the definitions of these and other basic D&I terms and develop an understanding of the interdependence of diversity and inclusion. Participants also learn the scope of the populations affected by inequality, including gender, race, ability, and orientation.
Module 2: Understanding Barriers to Diversity & Inclusion
The most revealing and surprising aspects of understanding and implementing D&I are found in the perceptions people don’t realize are affecting their interactions with others in the workplace. In this module, we explore unconscious bias, helping participants identify and work toward modifying their own preconceptions of and biases toward their coworkers.
Module 3: How Diversity & Inclusion Drive Business Performance
From workplace culture to the effectiveness of teams and the success of projects, participants will study examples of how D&I positively impacts business performance.
Module 4: Supporting a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace
In this final module, participants will learn how D&I are implemented – from hiring initiatives to professional development to team-building and promotion. Real-world examples are explored.
