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.
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.
In this session, participants will learn more about themselves and others by exploring their cultural identities. The session will support an understanding of not only the impact on different cultural cohorts but also the unique diversity, equity, and inclusion concerns around nationality and ethnicity.
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.
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.
What we say becomes what we believe, which is why ensuring the words we use come from a place of respect, appreciation, and knowledge is vital to healthy working dynamics. In this language-based session, we will learn guiding principles on keeping up-to-date, honoring preferences, and navigating up to 24 categories of diversity. We will also learn what to do when mistakes (inevitably!) happen.
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.
