Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Training

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) training team creates resources for all employees to learn and develop skills to discuss and understand anti-racism, anti-bias, diversity, equity and inclusion at Houston Methodist. Developing these skills is essential to improving and enhancing the culture at Houston Methodist.


Starting with the foundational course “Together We Grow,” the DEI training team will deliver various training experiences that will be available to all Houston Methodist employees.


Please see below for dates and topics of upcoming trainings, as well as our DEI Toolkit (a resource guide that can be used to begin and continue DEI conversations).

Together We Grow- All Employees and Physicians

The Together We Grow Virtual Learning Map® experience seeks to engage participants in conversation around our DEI strengths and opportunities at Houston Methodist. This training has been recognized as an important effort throughout our organization and reinforced by our executive team as a strategic priority. This 120-min session uses a visual metaphor to promote dialogue and understanding among team members from different parts of the organization.


The main objectives of Together We Grow are to:


  • Align our vision for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture at Houston Methodist, focusing on our I CARE values
  • Highlight the tools and drivers we’re using to grow our capabilities in diversity, equity and inclusion, both internally and externally
  • Make a personal connection to our diversity, equity and inclusion vision and drivers, recognize our own biases and identify how we can make positive change

*Note that this session is the first of several initiatives, activities and communications we have planned for the upcoming year.

Recognizing the Impact of Microaggressions, Managing Unconscious Bias and Navigating Multigenerational Teams Trainings Available

The Recognizing Microaggressions-Staff & Physicians Training session provides tools to create inclusive language and enhance positive interactions, encourage discussions and promote positive change regarding microaggressions, which can lead to strained relationships and breakdowns in trust.


Unconscious bias can get in the way of true diversity and inclusivity. The Managing Unconscious Bias training session will provide you with the tools and skills to recognize and articulate various types of unconscious bias, and effectively begin to mitigate them.


With many different generations represented in our workforce, it can become difficult to ensure we are communicating and collaborating effectively with the various generations on our team. The Navigating Multigenerational Teams class will confront generational assumptions and stereotypes, while providing steps to effectively work across generational divides. To register for these classes, log in to LMS and search "DEI."
