Marshall Reinforces Diversity eLearning

London (UK), May 2021 - Marshall E-Learning creates innovative, inspirational, and impactful eLearning, but they also know that an effective and holistic approach to equality, diversity, and inclusion doesn't always start with the online modules, and that it never stops with them. That's why they are now offering their clients an integrated wrap-round service through a suite of products that will maximise and embed the benefits delivered through the online courses.

Spring always signifies the start of something new, and Marshall E-Learning are delighted to announce the launch of their new diversity consultancy service. Available to both new and existing clients, this service reflects Marshall’s focus on blended learning, where eLearning is reinforced and developed when combined with additional workshops and learning opportunities.

Experience shows that a strategic and joined-up approach to diversity learning is the most effective and impactful. As a result, Marshall is now offering clients an integrated wrap-round service through a suite of products that will maximise and embed the benefits delivered through their online courses.

Online diversity and inclusion learning often prompts as many questions as it answers and represents just the start of a diversity learning journey. It is important to build on online training with additional learning opportunities. 

All of Marshall’s clients will benefit from

  • post eLearning activities, either for employees to do individually or for managers to facilitate with their teams
  • Q&A drop-in sessions
  • a monthly diversity article or resource that is collated into an online resource library
  • client community sessions with guest speakers

With the new diversity service, added extras can include

  • a train-the-trainer programme to increase the capacity and reach of workshops
  • a package of virtual workshops on selected topics to enable learners to delve deeper into online content
  • a light-touch equality, diversity, and inclusion temperature check to identify strengths, gaps, and priorities and support a strategic organisational approach
  • an eLearning outcomes evaluation to assess how the online module has landed and to recommend next steps for related learning

Some of these additional services are complimentary for existing eLearning clients, and others are offered as optional extras.

As Ann Allcock, Head of Diversity, explains, "Diversity eLearning is all too often seen as a compliance-related tool that serves a necessary purpose, but in reality can have limited impact.  At Marshall E-Learning, our online modules are designed as a springboard for deeper learning, for wider conversations, and for meaningful action to support inclusive behaviours and culture change.  We help organisations to see the bigger picture and offer blended learning opportunities, which really make a difference."

In addition to generating conversations and allowing eLearners to share experiences and stories about identity and difference, it allows staff to make the most of online learning, as it is reinforced and not forgotten.  It reassures employees that their organisation is truly committed to diversity learning and that it is not just a tick-box exercise.  It shows movement beyond compliance to impact on behaviours and workplace culture and provides a more joined-up approach that positions diversity learning as integral to a wider diversity and inclusion strategy.

If your organisation is currently looking for a training provider, Marshall specialises in diversity and inclusion. The company takes a holistic approach to diversity learning and supports organisations so they can embed inclusive behaviour into their organisational culture and create inclusive working environments.
