Inclusion 360°

Inclusion 360° will take you from being aware of your biases to becoming a change-agent for inclusion. This 6-module journey includes insights into the neuroscience of inclusion and gives you tools to put an inclusive culture into action. With topics ranging from Emotional Intelligence and Storytelling to Unconscious Bias, this course gives you a deep dive into inclusivity and belonging that transcends race, gender, sexual orientation or disability, and it helps you interact with others using an open mindset.

18 Micro eLearning Lessons (57 Minutes)

This module is about awareness of biases, blinds spots, and one’s identity. Specifically, who are you beyond titles and roles? This includes how you think you show up at work, how others view you, and how you want to be viewed and treated. All of these impacts your perceptions of others, and how we relate to management, peers, customers, and vendors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each course has a specific launch date and is designed to take 3 months complete.  Each module has a suggested due date to help you stay on track. You can extend your subscription if you need more time to complete the course work.

On the course launch date, there will be a virtual kick-off event where you will get to meet one of your instructors, learn about the new journey you are about to embark, and how ion Connect works.

Every course on the ion Connect platform operates within the ion framework of alternating micro eLearning content and small peer learning group discussion sessions. We call these discussion sessions your “Peer Learning Group” or PLG for short! After completing approximately 60 minutes of micro eLearning content, you will meet with your PLG to discuss the course content and explore how to apply what you have learned in your personal and professional life.  

Every course you signup for on ion, you are placed into a diverse peer learning group of 3-4 people. These people in your cohort have also subscribed from places around the US and from many different backgrounds and experiences. Using RITHM™, our diversity-focused algorithm, it will place you into your group based on an optimal amount of diversity. Every course you sign up for, you will be placed into a new Peer Learning Group to grow and expand your peer network. Did you know that research has shown that forming connections with peers early in your career tends to stimulate larger networks where you are highly sought out for your knowledge and expertise. Being sought out over time is strongly associated with faster promotion and longer tenure, particularly for women and people of color.  

Due to hybrid work, creating network connections has become more difficult. ion Connect™ will help you foster these critical connections faster.
