Recognizing that our social structures and personal biases can get in the way of commitment to respecting our colleagues and community members, this interactive workshop will engage themes of prejudice, power and privilege in a manner that honours all voices in the room while also challenging the biases and structures that privilege some over others and that damage the possibility of healthy yet diverse relationships and communities. This workshop is designed to support leaders in business, community and faith organizations as they address inclusion, diversity and equity.
|"I felt like this training was super practical with tangible tools that can be easily applied in real life. Structure of the class was excellent, with a good mixture of various activities, videos, breakout room sessions etc. Betty and Cayla are excellent facilitators!"|
|"I think that there was a very good flow and balance between group, individual discussion and theory/videos. Both theoretical and critical thinking were well balanced".|
|"There was a good flow from learning one concept to discussing it, practicing it and then adding to it with the next theory or idea"|
|"Breakout rooms were used very efficiently, which added to a positive online delivery experience. Online provides convenience and timesaving and the opportunity to participate in a class that otherwise would be unavailable to me.|
