EXAMPLES OF WORK WITH PAST CLIENTS
A multi-session participatory workshop series that explores and delves deeply into diversity + inclusion topics from multiple angles. These include historial + current contexts, terms + definitions & examiniation of disparities followed by highlighting relevant models for their dismantling. Each "Making sense of..." session focuses on a specific topic like Race, Class, Gender etc. All learning materials are provided.
Participants are coached as they build for themselves, or as part of a division, academic department, or team, a resource-rich professional Toolkit on inclusive supervision + teaching, mentoring, collegiality & navigating controversial "hot topics" + ideological difference in the classroom or workplace. Most learning materials provided, some self-guided work required.
One of our favorites! "Power of Words" is modeled after Intergroup Dialogue (U of Michigan) and explores the power of language for exclusion + language for inclusion. Participants learn various cross-cultural communication styles, dialogue + mediation skills as well general facilitation skills. Learning materials provided.
