About the Beans

Born in 2000 to combat prejudice, Diversity Beans force people to put their assumptions to the test. Like, "don't judge a book by its cover", don't judge these beans by their color. Tasked as a teaching tool for bias, prejudice, and stereotypes, Diversity Beans open the door to deepening conversations about past experiences and belief systems.

Used by companies like Apple, Amazon, and Disney, and in primary, secondary, and collegiate schools across the nation, Diversity Beans are a staple in training programs where building inclusive spaces is a priority.

Ways NOT to use Diversity Beans:

Diversity Beans are not a substitute for diversity training. Diversity Beans are an addition to training, a reminder, a takeaway, an activity in your training. Remember that creating inclusive and equitable companies, classrooms, homes and communities is a process not an event! We would love to be a part of your process!
