Partnership Overview

The Nova Collective and Unboxed Training and Technology are teaming up to help organizations transform their culture and achieve meaningful change through powerful learning experiences.

Sourcing and deploying high-quality, effective eLearning content for your team can be tough. Finding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training on a stellar online learning platform is even harder—but not impossible. 

Are you looking for a way to spearhead diversity and inclusion in the workplace?

  • Do you want to provide your teams with powerful and effective diversity and inclusion training?
  • Enter the new partnership between The Nova Collective and Unboxed Training & Technology.

These two powerhouses have joined forces to each do what they do best. The goal of this partnership is to help spark transformation in your organization’s culture, especially when it comes to diversity and inclusion training in the workplace. 

The common thread in this partnership is each group’s focus on their clients’ unique identities. Both solutions are learner-centric: they provide thoughtful, structured content on a reliable and personalized eLearning platform.

Key Partnership Benefits

Continuous Learning

The power of Spoke®+ Compass eLearning enables organizations to deliver an elevated D&I learning experience that integrates foundational knowledge acquisition with practice scenarios allowing teams to embed continuous learning at scale. 

Practice & Application

Spoke intuitively drives learners from one bite-sized Compass module to the next through intelligent, action-oriented recommendations tracking progress and measuring learning along the way. To develop consistent behaviors, learners practice and apply skills through video coaching simulations and engage in collaborative discussion in the community. 

Simulations and Coaching

  • Custom practice simulations  and coaching flows are included in platform implementation
  • Learner/Management relationships are assigned in the platform to support coaching conversations and workflows to practice skills and embed behaviors 
  • Immediately connect learners in a group discussion through optional community topics

Add NOVA's eLearning toolkit to your LMS or Spoke with three easy steps:

  • Step 1: Provide sample module to testing
  • Step 2: Adjust settings, as needed
  • Step 3: Deliver content (via FTP site) and module descriptions

Nova was founded by four women determined to change 'business as usual' in corporate America. With decades of experience in advertising, communications, and diversity & inclusion, the Nova founders brought their unique superpowers together to create an organization that is founded in representation.

Nova is founded on three core principles:

  1. 1.PURPOSE: We want your audiences to connect to your message. Our teams seek to center the Purpose of your organization (not WHAT you do, but WHY you do it) and make a meaningful connection with your workforce.
  2. 2.SCALE: We hate bottlenecks. Nova works to find ways to scale all of our programs and products throughout an organization. Our goal is to find ways for YOU to have more time, resources and impact.
  3. 3.REPRESENTATION: We believe who is in the room matters. Nova staffs all teams with majority women and majority people of color.
