Beyond Diversity to Inclusion
Jun 28 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

How do organizations create an environment where people feel they can actively participate, where their contributions are respected and valued? This workshop is about taking that next step toward moving beyond the individualism of diversity to the systemic and cultural change needed to build inclusive organizations.

Learning objectives:

  • A share of best practices on how to move from representation to the inclusion
  • Understand the role of implicit bias and impact on leadership, hiring, staffing and decision-making
  • Learn to have courageous conversations about race
  • The role of intentionality — orientation to an inclusive culture that is self-perpetuating through organizational systems, policies, and practices

Circle Training – Restorative Justice Practices for Working Together
Jul 17 @ 9:00 am – Jul 18 @ 4:00 pm

This two-day experiential training prepares participants to design and facilitate restorative circles in their workplace and communities. Participants will directly experience circles; understand the elements, philosophy, and rituals of circles; and practice both the planning and facilitation of circles. Circles are a structured form of a dialogue based on indigenous values and principles. Circles foster a sense of community based on mutual respect with broad application in many different contexts such as team building, collaborative problem-solving, or conflict transformation. This workshop will introduce the fundamental principles of restorative justice and prepare participants to use circles within their own lives in settings including workplaces, communities, organizations, universities, corrections, social services, families, and businesses.

PAYMENTS: Payments should be made prior to attending the training. For an invoice, please contact the Assistant Director.
