Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Programs

Current Programs

It's seemingly impossible to some and absolutely “normal” to many others: making connections both personally and professionally with different races of people. This session allows participants the opportunity to delve into the whys and hows of this subject matter. This experience will help individuals discover how socialization has shaped and guided their decision-making thus far as it relates to reception and rejection of people from various backgrounds and identities. The group will also learn how to move beyond long-held stereotypes and fears.

Narratives, scenarios and small group work (as participation numbers permit) are the drivers for this session. Practical knowledge of various types of biases are explored, discussed and dissected along the way as well. This session is inspired by the television show “What Would You Do?”

This session is devised to teach participants how to self-reflect on why they show up in the world as they do, think the way they do, and do the things they do. It is also designed to help coworkers understand more about how their individual journey co-mingles with that of others. Participants will be surprised at how much can be revealed by answering three very simplistic and innocuous questions.

Racial identity is among the most personal and controversial of our intersectionalities as human beings. Skin color matters because we are a visual species, and we respond to one another based on the way we physically present. This session will provide participants with basic knowledge on an inner-racial phenomenon known as colorism: prejudicial or preferential treatment of same-race people based solely on their complexion from people who are part of their own racial background.

If family gatherings are difficult based on issues regarding diversity, equity and inclusion in your family, you will benefit from this session. Go from frustrated by-stander to a confident voice of advocacy on behalf of other people. The crux of this session is in learning to speak your “PEACE” and separate it from the outcome. Learning to redirect your energy to make your voice heard, while fostering greater respect and tolerance for divergent opinions, is also a key learning outcome of this session.

By some deep magic, flims pull our voices out of our throats, throwing us into dialogue with others. They provide an easy entry point into the beginnings of conversation, whether with firends or family or neighbors and co-workers, with believers and unbelievers alike. This serives of sessions will focus on films rooted in diverse identities and experiences. Participants are given ample time to view films on their own. The sessions will involve unpackign takeaways from the myriad of minds and perceptions of everyone involved.

For the first time in modern history, there are four generations in the workforce — baby boomers, generation X, millennials and the first of generation Z. With this dynamic mix comes many opportunities and challenges. Participants will gain fundamental knowledge of how to better navigate the generational terrain in their work environment.

Vulnerability is a power tool in an emotionally intelligent leader’s toolkit. As a leader, it’s important to remember that your people usually know if something is not working. They just want to know whether you have the courage to tell them. By stepping up and being vulnerable you create a space that will allow your organization to get to the next level. Vulnerable leaders inspire, are more authentic, and build bonds that lead to increased performance.
