Diversity That Works!- Just what does a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace setting look like? How do we support rapidly increasing multiculturalism in our workplaces, churches or other space? These questions and more are answered in this powerful workshop. Learn how to create safe and brave spaces where people feel valued and supported--diversity doesn't equal equity!
What About Race? - Why does the concept of race exist? Learning the historical foundation behind race—-may determine how you see difference. The color of one’s skin distinguishes them from others with a different skin color, but different does not equal deficit. Learn how embedded the concepts of prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination are. Want to break free of perpetuating racism, then this workshop is for you!
The Power of Cultural Sensitivity - How do we break down barriers that often prevent us from having the relationships we desire? Why it's communication of course! We must learn to communicate with the intention of expressing the love of God and being sensitive to how we construct differences, the meanings of differences, and importantly, how others are experiencing differences. Working to be more culturally sensitive? This workshop will help.
What are Microaggressions and Why It Matters - Haver you ever been microaggressed? Or, have you microaggressed someone else? What's the big deal about microaggressions anyway? Here's a way to find out that barriers to having great relationships could be in not realizing you are microaggressing someone! This workshop will give you clarity on what microaggressions are, and why knowing this matters!
Understanding Institutional Racism - Often it's very helpful to get basic information regarding the history of America's relationship with colonialism and coloniality to understand the root of racism and its implications. If you're working to understand how we (America) has reached this "tiipping point" this workshop is where you find this out!
