Dalana Brand, Twitter’s Head of Inclusion & Diversity, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

“It’s one of the first messages we deliver to all new Tweeps on Day One in #FlightSchool, our new hire orientation,” Brand said.

It also also empowers workers with courses like “Healthy Conversations” (how to respectfully navigate tough topics in the workplace), “Words Matter” (how to spot and interrupt microaggressions), and “Allyship @ Twitter” (how to be an ally to underrepresented people).

“We recently made these courses mandatory for all Tweeps around the world to ensure everyone is operating with the same understanding of what is expected from them,” Brand said. (IANS)
