101 sessions introduce foundational terms and concepts around diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB). Each session builds awareness on central, applicable concepts and includes tools and exercises that support the participant’s learning. Participants do not need to have previous knowledge of key DEIB terms, concepts, and practice in self-awareness. We suggest taking one to three 101 sessions before starting 201 sessions.
In this session, we break down hidden bias and privilege to understand how to close the opportunity gap for ourselves and others. Through exercises and discussion, we will identify our own biases and privileges. Together, we will identify ways to be more mindful of our privileges, use them for the benefit of others, and extend them across our organizations.
201 sessions are designed to foster deeper understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Participants will gain the most value in these sessions if they previous experience with DEIB, especially a working knowledge of key terms, concepts, and self-assessment techniques.
301 courses focus on practical application of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging theories and frameworks in structural and strategic forms. These courses require both preexisting knowledge of DEIB and specific social identities, as well as participants with the ability to drive and lead group and organization-wide initiatives. These “next level” sessions are for organizations who have advanced DEIB plans and policies previously and are looking to evolve.
In this 90-minute session, we will explore the concept of “invisible labor, ” including how it shapes our perception of what work is and who deserves to get paid to do it.
Polyculturalism is defined as the belief that cultures change constantly through different racial and ethnic groups' interactions, influences, and exchanges with each other and, therefore, are dynamic and socially constructed rather than static. In this advanced session, we come to recognize the value of cultures from historically resilient communities while also introducing the possibility of them coming together to create something new.
These sessions help those new to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging develop insight and expertise in a given area while furthering the understanding of those with more experience. Focused on core tools, anyone can participate and leave with at least one beneficial, constructive action to take into their working lives.
We inform vision, strategy, processes, and practices around diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging through various techniques and practices. We conduct research and assessments to identify the best paths forward for each of our clients. Our offerings focus on every part of the intersection between employee experience and belonging according to our DEIB-based model R2P2: recruiting, retention, promotion, and protection.
