Certainly training and development will be a key piece of any diversity and inclusion effort. Its value is apparent on multiple levels as it enables awareness of preconceived notions, transfers the tools and techniques to address the issues and opportunities, and sets the stage for any adjustments in workplace culture. Here is the key point though and possibly a controversial one.
Far too much training and development centers on securing a change in the "attitude" of individuals who may not be as keen on the advantages of a diverse workforce. Although it is a noble goal to it is largely outside of the reach of the organization. In other words, as much as we'd like to, we cannot force people to think a certain way. Though bias and prejudice may be unwanted, everyone has a "right" to their own views.
The real issue is how you behave and how you treat others when you accept employment as a member of "this organization".
