 CASE STUDY

Building Pathways for Underrepresented
Groups at

Strive and NextRoll piloted a four-month, tech-enabled learning experience centered around self-discovery, skill development, and community engagement for underrepresented groups.
 

As a cohort, participants completed three core modules, taught in live, interactive sessions. During each class participants practiced skills in role play breakouts, practice simulations, directly applying new frameworks to their real world challenges. Additionally, participants completed a 360 assessment that oriented them in their strengths and areas of improvement.

TESTIMONIALS

Through class discussion, application challenges, and community building, NextRoll delivered a world class learning experience that fostered a keen sense of inclusion and belonging within the organization.

We wanted to further our journey on supporting underrepresented and marginalized communities at NextRoll. Partnering with Strive allowed us to offer this cohort the tools & frameworks to build their leadership skills, a space to build a supportive community, & the opportunity to develop their professional goals.
