The Business Trip

In order to create a respectful and inclusive culture, organizations need to provide regular diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training. But once you have had that basic training, how can you mix it up and make it relevant year after year?

At Concordia Consulting, we have found a way! We have adapted actual situations that we have been asked to remedy by changing them just enough to protect those involved. Then we implement the scenarios using a case-study approach to bring our training to life.

Want to try one? 

You are on a business trip to watch and support your boss who is testifying. The hearing is running late and there is a chance you will both miss your flight home. You brought your luggage with you, but your boss did not. She asks if you can please go to her hotel room just one block away to pack her belongings and bring them to her at the hearing room, so that neither of you will miss the flight. Once at the hotel, you are in a position where you need to handle her medications, cosmetics, and underwear.


  • What do you do in the moment?
  • After the trip, is there anything you could or should do?
  • If you are the HR director in this organization and you are told about the situation, what should you do?

Have you ever witnessed a similar situation in the workplace? Please let me know how you would deal with this scenario, as well as how effectively you think your organization might handle it. We will be sharing similar experiences in the months to come. If you would like facilitated training with us, we will customize a program specifically for your organization’s circumstances and culture.
