Creating safe, supportive, and inclusive environments

SkillsVR Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging aims to create understanding of the various perspectives that exist in any situation, and develop more thoughtful responses in light of them. Learners will come to understand the importance of moving past their own bias or initial judgements and taking a more considered approach to others.

About This Module

The DIB module allows learners to approach the topic of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in a safe space. It features an emotionally charged scenario for participants to explore, reflectively engaging them and challenging them to consider any biases they may encounter in their response.

SkillsVR DIB operationalizes “soft skills” via measuring and harnessing three core inherent traits: self-awareness, curiosity, and empathy.

By the end of the SkillsVR DIB module, learners will be able to explore their personal attitudes and assumptions in a conflict situation, reflect on the perspectives of others, and consider alternate perspectives with empathy when engaging with others.
