Equity and Inclusion Training Certification

We bring a fresh, lively and humble approach to equity and inclusion training – spanning bias reduction in the workplace and classrooms to educating juries, law enforcement and health care providers on how bias influences domestic and sexual violence outcomes.  Our work is rooted in intersectional research, organizational theory, and examples from popular culture, news media, history, finance and law.

Certificate in The Business Case for DEI

This four-part certificate program (online synchronous or in person) prepares participants to become more proficient in the business case for DEI.  We use the 2020 McKinsey report, Diversity Wins, along with an organization self-assessment and the Model of Improvement to guide goal setting, measures to track success, and ideas to test locally.

  • Course 1:  The Business Case for DEI.  We use data from the 2020 McKinsey report and other published works to build the business case for DEI.  We provide an organizational self-assessment, discuss where organizations tend to stumble in DEI, and outline key organizational components to optimize DEI outcomes.  

  • Course 2:  Awareness.  Addressing where organizations tend to stumble in DEI starts with improving organizational leaders' awareness of how unconscious biases, microaggressions, power, privilege, intersectionality, and stereotype threat impact human behavior and organizational decision-making.   

  • Course 3:   Action.  We explore what it means for organizational leaders to embrace active allyship practices to mitigate the impact of bias, cultivate mindfulness in DEI practices, and skills building to move from performative to active allyship in individual actions and in organizational policies and practices.

  • Course 4:  Implementation.  Implementing DEI practices with proactive planning and intentionality is key to optimize and sustain positive DEI outcomes.  We’ll use an organizational self-assessment and the Model of Improvement to identify DEI goals, measures to track success, and ideas to test locally in your organizations.  

 
 

Certificate in Equity and Inclusion

This four-part certificate program (online synchronous or in person) prepares participants to become more proficient in equity and inclusion practices, in active allyship, and in identifying individual and organizational goals, measures to track success, and ideas to test locally.  

  • Course 1:  Awareness.  Improving equity and inclusion requires increasing awareness of how unconscious bias, microaggressions, stereotype threat, oppression, privilege, power, identity and intersectionality shape human and organizational behavior.  We explore film, print media, trademarks, and laws to build awareness.  

  • Course 2:  Action. We explore what it means to be an active ally to mitigate the impact of bias at the individual and organizational levels.  Using best practice models, we practice hands-on skills building on how to interrupt microaggressions and probe organizational policies and practices to improve equity and inclusion outcomes.

  • Course 3:  Translation. We explore change ideas together to improve equity, inclusion and active allyship practices at the individual and organizational levels.  We use the evidence-based Model of Improvement to identity:  1) goals, 2) measures to track progress, and 3) ideas to test locally using the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle.  

  • Course 4:  Refinement.  We reconvene to reflect, connect and discuss our learning on change ideas tested using the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle within the Model of Improvement.  This includes what worked, what didn’t work, and modifications to further advance equity, inclusion and allyship practices.
