DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Diversity & Inclusion Workshops
An Introduction to Diversity & Social Justice: This is a 2-hour group session used to review introductory concepts of diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Participants will discuss the difference between those definitions and what it means to be on a social justice journey. Participants will leave this session with a better understanding of the basic principles of social justice. This is a general session but it can be tailored to the needs of individual groups.
Intermediate/Advanced Diversity & Inclusion Session: This is a 4-hour session used to help those committed to social justice and inclusion think about their biases, and the ways in which they advocate for marginalized groups in the US. Power, privilege and oppression will be highlighted using historical and modern-day examples. This session is used to move people from conversations about "diversity is important" to conversations that deal with power, privilege, and systemic oppression. At the end of this session, participants will be able to answer the question, what privileges do I hold and how can I acknowledge those privileges in ways that make the US more equitable for others. Participants will also discuss ways to serve as an advocate for social justice issues in their local community. This session includes a FREE 30-minute consultation to assess the needs of your group.
