“An inclusive work environment isn’t built through awareness alone. It is something that needs continuous nurturing and support,” said Liberty Mutual Insurance Senior Vice President and Global Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Dawn Frazier-Bohnert. “We saw an opportunity through the video series to create something relatable; something that could be used in real-life scenarios to move our employees from inclusion awareness to action and help them communicate effectively across differences. Providing our employees with this video series as a way to develop inclusion skills is an important step we’ve taken on our journey toward greater inclusion. We are excited to share our learnings and give other organizations the same opportunity.”

It has a tiered pricing structure that takes into account a company’s size, the video delivery system and whether it is a for profit or nonprofit organization.
