Does Interfacet provide diversity training?


Yes we do. We've been providing diversity training since before it was even called that. Our team is deeply engaged with the questions of how people from many different backgrounds and experiences can communicate in ways to navigate differences to connect, not divide. Deb Pagnotta, our founder, developed the first cultyural diversity training phone app in 2009; that little app has now been developed into diversityDNA(tm) DDNA is now a unique web-based software we provide to help users understand their own communication preferences and perceptions, compare to others, and develop cognitive complexity and communication tools.

How does Interfacet price its training?


We price based on several factors, all transparent to the client: 1. The format of the training (live in person, webinar, and digitalized modular) 2. If modular, the baseline cost of the module and minimal per user cost, with additional costs for additional functionalities (branding of portal, additional tailoring for client/industry, reporting options), and longer licenses. 3. If in person, baseline cost for training/seminar which decreases with number of trainings provided. (We would far rather charge you less and work with you for a long time!) 4. We charge an hourly rate for individual communication coaching, and a set flat fee is available for packages. 5. We generally do not charge for travel time unless training location is over 4 hours away from trainers' location. 6. We discount our prices to not-for-profits and veterans' groups.




What is the importance of NYC's recently issued Enforcement Policy Guidance on Race Discrimination Based on Hair?


In February, 2019, the New York City Commission on Human Rights issued a ground-breaking 10-page guidance clarifying that employers may not take adverse action against Black applicants or employees based upon their choice to wear their hair naturally or in hairstyles associated with race, ethnicity, or culture. At present, prudent employers should be reviewing the guidance and adapting their appearance, grooming, and hair policies accordingly. Interfacet has posted a link to this document on our Resources page.
