When traditional DEI&B (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging) training is boring, dull, and unimaginative... how can employees effectively implement what they slept through?
No one sleeps through our DEI&B training!
We infuse the art of dessert tasting & baking into an interactive learning experience for companies who seek to offer a (unique, innovative, fun, memorable) approach to conventional DEI&B training. We harness the power of food as a unifying language to create equitable spaces for foundational-level DEI&B work to increase employee engagement, understanding, and retention.
Our Mission Statement
To use the creativity and fun of dessert baking and tasting as a unifying language to bridge meaningful conversation, connection, and belonging. At Beyond Decadence, everyone at our table belongs.
