Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Foundations Training
Embrace Differences. Inclusive Culture. Eliminate Prejudice.
To see real change and leverage the full potential of an organization’s talent, it is important to go beyond diversity and inclusion and focus on the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. Corridor’s new EDI training focuses on issues that directly impact productivity and workplace culture.
The EDI Foundations course is designed for employees at all levels of your organization. The training uses engaging examples, case studies and personal exercises to help employees fully realize the implications and results of discrimination and exclusion. EDI Foundations training covers:
- Key concepts and terminology under the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion umbrella, including accessibility
- Socially constructed perceptions that contribute to the marginalization of certain groups
- Bias, Stereotypes, Prejudice
- Social identities, social location, and intersectionality
- Power and privilege
- The basis and impacts of systems of oppression and what we mean by dominant and non-dominant groups
- How does social location play out in real life
- Human rights in the context of the Canadian Human Rights Act and Prohibited Grounds of Discrimination
Diverse perspectives promote innovation through creative thinking and objectivity, leading to more productive problem solving. Diverse teams that include women, a variety of cultures, 2SLGBTQIA+, and Indigenous people benefit from ideas and different approaches to support projects and identify opportunities. Multiple voices cultivate new perspectives and “out of the box” thinking boosts your company’s intellectual potential.
Corridor’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion training enables organizations to implement change and promote innovation. The individual exercises throughout the training enable employees to objectively problem solve. Corridor’s EDI training benefits your bottom line and delivers an increased level of social responsibility.

“For equity, inclusion, accessibility, and diversity to become second nature in our organizations we need to challenge ourselves by interrogating our biases, keeping an open mind, and learning to unlearn.”
