STRE.ME helps organizations rapidly deploy individualized implicit bias training on a software platform. Users take assigned implicit association tests (IAT) to learn what biases they have, watch specific video segments based on their results, and set and track goals to work with their biases. Then, users, cohorts, and organizations are nurtured to increase accountability towards making better decisions.
STRE.ME is the culmination of research and real-world experience from its leaders, each of which has unique a skill set. When combined, the leadership team complements STRE.ME's solution to evolve equity and accountability by enabling people to make better decisions and improve results.
