What is the importance of virtual DEI efforts at work? πŸ’­

Now that diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are at the top of everyone's minds when looking for a new employer, it's vital that you're doing more than hiring diverse people.

If your company's mission is to be truly inclusive and equitable, you should be implementing employee engagement through DEI activities all year round, because:

  • When people truly feel they belong to a workplace that explores diversity team building, aside from the bear-minimum holiday schedule, they feel more empowered to bring their true selves to the office, leading to happier, authentic teams and greater employee retention!
  • Regularly celebrating different identities and global cultures makes it much easier to understand our colleagues, and be empathetic and supportive allies, inside of the office and out.

You may think that diversity and inclusion activities are only suitable for in-person offices. That's far from the truth! In fact remote teams need access to virtual events that promote inclusion, now more than ever! Read on for some of the best virtual diversity games.


Encourage diverse team members to bond with these 5 DEI activities πŸ™Œ

1. LGBTQIA+ Drag Queen Trivia πŸ’…

Gather around for a rousing game of trivia, hosted by a very fabulous Drag Queen! The questions in each round will celebrate diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community, creating more widespread awareness and appreciation of their contributions and the Pride movement.

Break up into small groups to give team members access to team bonding with colleagues from different departments. This helps foster inclusion across teams!

Why is this a great DEI game? The more we can gain cultural knowledge surrounding marginalized groups, the better we can support employees within those identity groups, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity.

2. Women's History Month Jeoparty πŸ‘­

Hopefully your company's diverse leadership features women at the table!

Why not celebrate the achievements of women everywhere by gathering to play a fun and informative game of Women's History Jeoparty? Pssst, you don't have to only play in the month of March!

The categories on this Jeoparty board cover the works of historical icons and activists, historical events regarding women's rights, women's works in music, tv, film, and more!

Why is this a great DEI game? Nearly half of the American workforce is comprised of women, but it hasn't always been that way. Work towards gender equality in your office by celebrating achievements of women all year round!

Plus, there's an educational element to these puzzles as well. The categories cover all sorts of Hispanic & Latinx cultural touchstones such as cultural foods, famous celebrities, regional geography, and more!

Why is this a great DEI game? Every team member will walk away with something learned about Hispanic & Latinx people and culture. Encourage employees to share a new fact they'll take away at the end of the game!

4. Empathy Water Cooler 🀝

Remote team building that centers around communicating effectively is vital to happy teams, especially since so much of our communication is through written emails, Slack messages, or virtual calls.

When working with people from different backgrounds, with different perspectives and ways of working, it's inevitable that stressful situations will arise now and then, and empathy is necessary to understanding. This activity focuses on learning healthy strategies to understand each other's non-verbal warning signs, as well as strategies to understand each other and get to know their team better.

Why is this a great DEI game? Diversity and inclusion efforts include making sure your employees feel like they have the tools they need to communicate safely with one another, especially when we aren't working face to face.

5. Icebreakers 🧊

Icebreakers are easy and free diversity and inclusion activities that you can fit into any virtual meeting, or larger team building gathering!

Try celebrating diversity by gathering your team for an interactive and fun virtual lunch, where you can go around and answer icebreaker questions that allow everyone to let their personal identities and cultures shine.

Why is this a great DEI game? Icebreakers are a great way to spark meaningful dialogue amongst team members of all different cultures! Plus, it's a great way to help a remote team learn more about the different viewpoints of their colleagues, definitely more than you can in a Slack chat!
