Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Series

What are the differences between diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)? How does the movement’s history impact these conversations today, and how can DEI be applied in everything from company conversations to hiring procedures?

In this workshop series, we work through research-informed best practices, understanding common myths, and exploring our personal and professional relationship to the topic. Participants will obtain a better understanding of privilege, marginalization, inequality, and microaggressions, as well as acquire the tools and skills to navigate how diversity, equity, and inclusion can be applied within their fields.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Series Topics

Our firm takes a holistic approach to exploring diversity, equity, and inclusion. We offer software, survey design, analysis, and numerous training topics that can be used separately or together. Some of these topics include:

  • Diversity & Inclusion 101

  • Creating LGBTQ Inclusive Workplaces

  • Trauma-Informed Care in the Workplace

  • Hiring and Retention for Inclusivity

  • Beyond Tolerance and Diversity: Inclusion in Action

  • Overcoming Resistance to DEI Initiatives

  • Soft Skills for Cultural Humility

Evolving From #MeToo: Sexual Harassment Prevention in the Workplace

In this workshop, leaders explore various approaches for prevention and response in cases of sexual harassment. We will discuss effective prevention, liability awareness, and impactful tools for addressing incidents. With more informative and proactive planning, the less reactive and vulnerable an organization is to liability.

By discussing the history, cultural context, and cost of sexual harassment, organizational leaders can be on the front end of impactful organizational cultural change. By the end of this session, participants will be able to identify and explain what sexual harassment entails. They will be able to describe tools for prevention and response that are research-informed and action-oriented.

Soft Skills 101: From Emotional Intelligence to Strength-Based Leadership

Soft skills are some of the most sought-after skill sets in the workforce today, yet few opportunities to understand the theories and best practices for emotional intelligence are available. In this workshop, we will explore how to identify, obtain, and utilize emotional intelligence. Understanding your emotional quota, personality types, the locus of control, and interpersonal knowledge leads to an overall increase in productivity and retention. We will also incorporate how strength-based leadership and mindfulness can benefit those working on the micro, mezzo, and macro levels of an organization.

Resolving Conflict: Effective Mediation and Internal Investigations

If you avoid arguments, lie to keep the peace, or believe that hiding behind your desk is the best way to deal with conflict, then this workshop is for you. As leaders, we cannot avoid conflict altogether—it is a natural part of life and business. By tackling hard conversations and transforming them with tools such as mediation and compassion, you can go from conflict-avoidant to conflict-competent. This workshop will show you how to use conflict for good, tools for effective mediation, and how to have confidence in using disagreements to strengthen your team.

Trauma-Informed Care in Action: Beyond Trauma 101

So, you’ve taken trauma-informed care (TIC) basics courses but still feel stuck on what to do next? What does TIC look like in daily life? How and when do you use it? In this three-part series, we explore “Beyond the 101” information, diving deeper into the numerous theories on trauma and how to bring TIC practices into your personal and professional life. Participants leave with skills that focus on understanding the neurology of trauma, types of trauma, ACE scores, Spoon Theory, how to communicate in a TIC way, and personal reflection for ongoing growth and praxis. Also available as a certification.
