Trainings provide a platform to continuously monitor diversity inclusion and adapt to the constant changes that diversity bring with it.

YES IT CAN BE MEASURED - BUT IT CAN BE DIFFICULT

Consider the measures that often are not:
Improved Relationship between Co-Workers with Various Backgrounds
Fewer Complaints
More Diverse Hiring

Other measures may include:
Productivity Gains
Rises in Innovation & Creativity
Employee Retention

YES IT IS ESSENTIAL - IN PREVENTING FREQUENT THE OCCURRENCE OF UNDESIRED OUTCOMES & THE WASTING OF RESOURCES.

Measurements are essential in illustrating where problems are, what gaps need to be filled, and if training/policy needs to be completely overhauled/reorganized to achieve what it is intended to..
