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:
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.
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.
How to get started 👉 Celebrate workplace diversity and inspire inclusive teams with LGBTQIA+ Drag Queen Trivia!

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.
