Workshops & Training
No more stuffy trainings. Let’s bring some fun into DEI, ethics & compliance to improve workplace culture!
At Ethintegrity, we take a non-traditional approach to learning. Our workshops are designed to cultivate and implement a culture of inclusion and creativity. This creates a knowledgeable and empowered workforce providing organizations with a distinct competitive advantage.
How do you engage?
We do this through various innovative techniques (both in-person and online), including the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (aka “LSP”) methodology, which focuses on the “power of play.”
“Play” does not mean that you aren’t working or learning. When used strategically, “play” is how we effectively build skills to make work more efficient, innovative, and profitable. Combining “play” with courageous conversations encourages a robust dialogue that will resonate with your team by creating captivating employee experiences.
How does it work?
Creative & interactive workshops ensure all attendees
- are 100% involved in the session;
- engage with other participants;
- use active listening, and
- assist in generating innovative ideas on the workshop topic.
It also creates a safe environment where global participants can learn across languages, cultures, and educational levels, give constructive feedback, and actively learn and understand laws and policies that apply to their everyday work environment.
Besides, it’s a fun way to engage with the staff! People tend to remember experiences more than PowerPoint presentations. Innovative workshops create shared memories that involve stories and learning experiences from peers, not just the facilitator.
Utilizing our core values of Innovation, Inclusion, and Empowerment, we create unforgettable employee experiences from keynote speeches to innovative workshops that will captivate and motivate your attendees.
Who do you train?
Ethintegrity provides practical & innovative training for staff, senior leaders, Board of Directors, and company employees.
Executive Management & Leaders
Ethintegrity can customize ethics-specific training for your executive management based on scenarios the leaders encounter in their day-to-day roles. This training can focus on ethics (i.e., tone at the top, handling sensitive issues reported directly to them) and subject matter-specific topics (i.e., anti-bribery, antitrust, etc.) and inclusive leadership and managing unconscious bias.
We provide training to Compliance department staff on how to implement and communicate their compliance program effectively. Training includes exercises evaluating current programs’ effectiveness, communication styles across different cultures and countries, and best practices and enforcement trends in the compliance field.
Ethintegrity can help you develop training and awareness tools to engage your employees in an efficient & interactive way effectively.
What types of workshops does Ethintegrity facilitate?
All workshops are customized based on an in-depth discussion with the sponsor.

“Nichole’s workshops are engaging, fun and full of content. Her experience shines through and she is a real leader in this field. We can’t wait to have another session with her.”Jessica MastersFinance Director - Philip Kingsley
"It is clear that Nichole is an expert and thought leader in the Diversity, Inclusion & Ethics space. She absolutely radiates knowledge in this area, has a genuine passion for the subject matter and is on a mission to empower conscious social change.
Having attended a workshop hosted by Nichole at the Allbright Club, what really struck me was her knack of taking complex and what can be uncomfortable subject matter and making it tangible so that she can constructively challenge belief systems and offer a new, more productive and inclusive way of thinking and being. The use of "Lego Play" is also genius in opening and shifting the narrative and providing an excellent tool for participants to feel empowered discussing scenarios or themselves, which they might otherwise feel uncomfortable doing so. As a speaker, Nichole's style is engaging and inspirational. You immediately want to listen to what she has to say and come along with her on her journey. I took a moment to scan the sold out room and every single person was totally entranced on Nichole, nodding in agreement absorbing what she had to say. It was a joy to witness.
Nichole's gift lies in her ability to lead, teach, motivate and inspire. What you get when you work with Nichole is not only her expertise but her in her authentic truth, being and actioning the change that she wants to see in the world.
I highly recommend Nichole if you are looking for a speaker or an expert who can creatively problem solve in your organisation to boost awareness and deliver sustainable D&I or compliance programmes."Gina UnterhalterLeadership & Business Coach, Founder of Empowered Coaching Limited
“I had the pleasure of working with Nichole Pitts for over two (2) years, as her client, in which she provided compliance advisory services for my organization in the areas of policy development, training, internal communication, and served as my trusted advisor to support me in my role as the senior compliance officer for a wholesale insurance brokerage, with operations in North America, United Kingdom, and Europe. I have been in the ethics, risk management, and compliance arena for over thirty (30) years and have come to appreciate that it takes a certain temperament and skill to effectively serve as a compliance practitioner. Based on my observations these last two years, Nichole possesses such skills, temperament, and diplomacy to know when to challenge my assumptions, but always assisting with the goal of embedding and operationalizing an effective compliance structure and culture. Not only would I highly recommend Nichole to others looking for a sound and creative ethics and compliance professional, but it is also my hope to work with her on future projects."Michael E. BlackshearSVP, Chief Compliance Officer Ryan Specialty Group
"Nichole facilitated a personal development workshop at a Vision Weekend that I hosted and she was fantastic! Her LEGO Serious Play facilitation was amazing. It was engaging, thought-provoking and set the best atmosphere for the women to reflect on 2018 while creating a plan for 2019. She was very professional to work with, had great ideas during the planning process and came prepared to lead the workshop with great enthusiasm. Nichole was a highlight of the weekend. I cannot recommend her enough and I look forward to partnering with her again."Nicole S. ClarkExecutive Director, Goldman Sachs

Glad to be able to let you know the audience was definitely listening and took away a lot from your session.H. Kristen ChungAssistant General Counsel/Sr. Director, Legal & Compliance - NYK Group Americas, Inc.
A Lego fan even as an adult, I was thrilled to hear how Nichole Pitts increases employee engagement through the use of Legos. She walked conference-goers through exercises using Legos that helped them learn new ways to communicate and articulate complex compliance concepts in very practical ways. And hey, we got to play with Legos the whole time!Kate SmithFormer CECO at Convercent, currently Vice President, Ethics Office - Assurant
