A diverse workforce measurably improves performance and profitability. Decades of research have demonstrated as much. But traditional corporate strategies to increase diversity have largely failed. Why? They emphasize control over collaboration and understanding.
Enter The Defamation Experience. A new approach to advancing workplace diversity and inclusion. By exposing participants to their own and others’ biases in a civil and productive setting, Defamation breaks down conversation barriers, allowing a new dialogue to begin. And now, you can bring this proven experience to your audience no matter where they’re located with DefEx Online. Learn More

"THE PROGAM WAS EXTRAORDINARY AND CREATED AN ACTIVE DIALOGUE that is continuing over weeks and weeks after the performance. I commend The Defamation Experience as AN EFFECTIVE RESOURCE TO CREATE DIALOGUE TO BRIDGE THE RACIAL DIVIDE."

"The cast members exhibited incredible talent and we were simply blessed to have had them in our city to present a theme on areas that are still relevant to our society today."

"THE DEFAMATION EXPERIENCE gently forced me to confront my own biases, whether conscious or unconscious. The format resonated instantly with me. I continue to tell others about this."

"As a law enforcement officer, what I personally enjoyed was the discussion after the case was presented to the audience for a decision. To be able to hear what the attendees thoughts were. To see the difference in age groups and back grounds of the attendees, to have them share their comments in great detail for me was the best part. I have a better understanding of where my community is at and where through my work, I will be able to assist in helping my community in a direction for a healthier place to live."
