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’ll lay the groundwork for conversations about social identity and systematic injustice.

301 courses focus on practical application of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging theories and frameworks in structural and strategic forms.

These “next level” sessions are for organizations who have advanced DEIB plans and policies previously and are looking to evolve.
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.
