CORPORATE SPONSORED EVENTS
We use Diversity Beans as conversation starters, icebreakers, and branded promotional giveaways at corporate sponsored events. We love the saying, we love that you can add our logo, and we love that the jelly beans are truly diverse!
Tonisha L., Equal Opportunity Manager
EEO ANTI-BIAS TRAINING SESSIONS
Diversity Beans were a hit! We used them in several Equal Employment Opportunity training sessions with junior, mid, and senior-level personnel. We found them to be a unique tool that inspired conversations about diversity. They were well received and enjoyed by all attendees!

DEI ICEBREAKER ACTIVITY FOR WORKSHOPS
When interviewing teachers for State Teacher of the Year, one of the finalists shared Diversity Beans with us. She shared how children are all different and what we see on the outside may be different from the inside. That week I bought my own stash! We have since used them as an opening exercise for our Diversity Training workshops. They are always a hit!
Susan D., Teacher
I attended an education symposium that used Diversity Beans. It was all about speaking up when you see something that is not culturally responsive. That led us in search of the beans to use with our teachers. Some of our principals have already placed orders, and others are going to be. We appreciate the work you are doing.
Shelia J., Director of Diversity
DIVERSITY AWARENESS INITIATIVES
Diversity Beans are part of our overall awareness initiative. We give them individually, to teams, and use branded ones as takeaways from conferences. They are a quick hit to keep diversity front and forward and employees love the concept. It leaves a good taste in their mouth (literally) about the topic of diversity.
Jennifer J., Senior Human Resources Manager
EMPLOYEE ORIENTATION AND ONBOARDING
We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. Diversity Beans are a reminder of that commitment to employees during orientation, onboarding and beyond.
Marjorie M., Social Adjustment Counselor
DEI TRAINING IN THE CLASSROOM
Diversity Beans give students food for thought about the many ways we can combat prejudice, bias, and hate, and how we all have a part in making the world a better place.
Elizabeth C., Diversity & Inclusion Director
JOB RECRUITMENT, JOB FAIRS, AND SPEAKING EVENTS
We use Diversity Beans in our firm reception areas, recruitment/job fairs, speaking engagements, and in our diversity orientation sessions. We use them primarily to demonstrate the prevalence of subconscious stereotypes.
Joan Korenblit, Executive Director, Respect Diversity Foundation
ANTI-BULLYING TRAINING & STUDENT TEACHER WORKSHOPS
Diversity Beans are a fun, creative, and tasty dialogue starter. We have enjoyed using them at student and teacher workshops, anti-bullying conferences, and our exhibit gala.
Tina J., Teacher
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE
A few months ago I discovered diversity jelly beans while browsing the web. I ordered some to use in our teachers' training and they were a hit! Since then, we have used them with parents, students, and teachers. What a wonderful tool they are! I always cite the source and encourage others to use them. Keep up the good work!
