Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Trainings

In this training series we aim to first address the fundamental sources of conflict that are causing tension within our teams and then practice skills to move toward greater trust and growth.

 

We'll follow a three part developmental pathway: Starting Point, Skills for the Journey, and Strength for the Long-Haul. Explore the workshops listed and find what best fits the needs of your organization. Whether you’re farther along on the DEI journey or just starting out, we’re excited to help you take the next steps!
