MOONHUB’s IO is an immersive experience that goes beyond ordinary learning, focusing on themes vital to every organisation: Workplace well-being, Health and Safety, Fire awareness, Manual handling, and Diversity and Inclusion. More than just training, it’s a transformational experience for your team, where the very essence of each topic comes alive in an engaging and immersive virtual environment. With IO, training that is usually just a box to tick transforms into a powerful tool for growth and success. 

MOONHUB’s D&I VR Training

Co-curated with Róisín Wood, former CEO of Kick It Out for 10 years, our D&I VR training is an in-depth, multifaceted learning experience of the highest of degrees covering four key topics: 

  1. Microaggression
  2. Onboarding
  3. Harassment 
  4. and Unconscious Bias. 

Diversity and inclusion have long been a challenge that companies usually address through seminars, videos and role-playing scenarios. While the latter can help share useful information, technologies such as virtual reality training allow you to understand the experience and immerse in perspectives that cannot be obtained in any other way.

VR is perfect for simulating scenarios, offering a window into the human experience and a safe space to have high-risk conversations and help with inappropriate behaviour while ensuring a positive work environment.

It’s Importance

Gain an empathetic understanding by immersing your team in diverse perspectives, fostering genuine empathy, and gaining a deeper understanding of diverse viewpoints. This translates into stronger connections and a harmonious work environment. Recognise and address unconscious biases, creating a safe workspace where everyone’s contributions can shine. This newfound awareness leads to fairer decision-making processes and an inclusive culture. As a result of this training, your teams will be equipped with skills to drive inclusivity and celebrate diversity, which allows everyone to nurture an empowered and collaborative workforce.

By addressing and understanding microaggressions, companies can foster a more inclusive and respectful environment, promoting diversity and ensuring that employees feel valued and supported. This training is essential for creating a workplace culture that actively combats bias and promotes equitable treatment for all employees.
