OpenSesame welcomes internationally recognized diversity and inclusion publisher Symmetra to its elearning course catalogue

Leading organisations can now access Symmetra’s gamified inclusion and diversity elearning content through the OpenSesame Plus subscription

Portland, OR – 1 June 2021 – OpenSesame, the elearning innovator, announced the addition of Symmetra to its popular OpenSesame Plus subscription to expand its library of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) elearning courses. 

Founded in Australia in 2003 by Heather Price, who founded one of the first diversity consultancies in South Africa during the dismantling of apartheid, Symmetra provides cutting-edge diversity and inclusion products and services. Their online training content delivers bite-size learning — the Symmetra courses in the OpenSesame Plus catalogue average 15 minutes in length — combined with toolkits, discussion guides and templates to help organizations develop real-world DEI action plans. Symmetra courses also include elements that gamify the learning experience, resulting in more engagement and higher completion rates. 

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion continues to be a top priority for OpenSesame and other forward-thinking enterprises around the world,” said Spencer Thornton, Senior Vice President of Curation at OpenSesame. “Our customers look to us to lead on this issue and provide a robust offering of content that addresses topics like unconscious bias, building diverse teams, inclusive leadership, and more. Symmetra is a perfect fit for our catalog, and we are excited to make their engaging DEI content available as part of the OpenSesame Plus subscription catalogue.” 

“We are excited at the opportunity to showcase the work we do and support so many organisations through our partnership with OpenSesame Plus,” said Joshua Price, Symmetra’s Director of Growth. “As a leading global diversity and inclusion consultancy, we are passionate about driving business purpose and performance through inclusive behaviours. Our collaboration with OpenSesame will help teams create or adapt their DEI programmes to real, on-the-ground needs, and will expand our reach and make inclusivity a more central, uncompromisable goal for modern organisations. OpenSesame’s excellent track record of helping organisations achieve their learning objectives—regardless of what these are—is something I’ve always valued. With the global demand for DEI programmes increasing at a rapid pace, I can’t think of a better partner to help us meet this need.” 

With the addition of Symmetra, OpenSesame now offers more than 1,000 diversity, equity, and inclusion curated elearning courses in its comprehensive catalog. Click here to view all Symmetra courses now available from OpenSesame.
