About Our Virtual Training Sessions

If your employees telecommute or work in multiple office locations, virtual instructor-led training is a great way to provide Unconscious Bias training that everyone can participate in regardless of their physical location. Our virtual training classes happen in real-time, so that your team members can engage directly with the instructor and their colleagues by participating in polls, live chat discussions, and virtual break out groups. These interactive experiences enhance and add value to the training by providing opportunities for dialogue around important topics affecting your team and an open exchange of ideas and viewpoints. Plus, participants can ask the instructor questions and receive immediate clarification on any of the material covered in the virtual class. A Rutgers staff person will consult with you throughout the planning process and serve as a moderator during the entire virtual training session to provide additional support as needed.
