PebblePad, an award-winning learning journey platform, and Anthropolicy Culture Brokers LLC have recently announced a strategic partnership, which will see Anthropolicy use PebblePad’s industry-leading learning journey platform to power its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) initiatives for organizations, schools, and colleges across the US.
Anthropolicy Culture Brokers LLC, an Oregon-based human rights equity startup, offers catalyzing programs that advise, coach, and train organizations to conceptualize and incorporate a values-based human-rights-oriented approach to DE&I operational policy. The company does this by shepherding experiences that actualize client DE&I values through human rights standards that bring much-needed clarity, integrate the work into a larger picture, and prompt community-based actions that can help make a real difference in the world.
PebblePad’s intuitive, easy-to-use platform will help Anthropolicy clients across to undertake a thoughtful and thorough exploration of how human rights equity fits — or fails to fit — into their culture while empowering them to make sense of experiences through storytelling and reflection, according to a press statement.
Anthropolicy will harness PebblePad’s private and secure space for reflecting, analyzing, and planning – benefitting from industry-leading tools to help create rich records of their learning, experience, and achievement. Anthropolicy is also harnessing templates (in-built and custom) and workbooks, as well as a creative suite of tools to help delegates express themselves and learn together. The company uses PebblePad’s assessment tool, ATLAS, to support rich, iterative, and conversational styles of assessment and feedback. Aaron Pina, Founder of Anthropolicy, commented,
"PebblePad challenges the status quo on DE&I by providing safe, secure virtual spaces to explore and move traditional DE&I compliance training modules. PebblePad’s approach to learning deepens Anthropolicy’s human rights practice by iterative, authentic explorations that show change over time."
PebblePad will also provide Anthropolicy with excellent reporting on outcomes, together with data-driven feedback and assessment from clients – in order to develop and refine their services for the future.
Shane Sutherland, CEO of PebblePad, added,
"Anthropolicy promotes a positive and empowering approach to helping businesses, families, and communities promote Diversity, Inclusion, and Equality. We’re delighted to play a part in its journey. Using PebblePad, Anthropolicy will be able to encourage and support active, authentic learning – providing a learning platform versatile enough to support varied learning and development activities and help deliver a first-class experience for delegates."
Founded in 2004, PebblePad is designed to help learners, wherever they are learning (at study, work, or play), develop, shape, and share their unique skills and attributes in an ever more competitive world.
