Training Topics

DIVERSITY 101
All people are different. It is these differences that make organizations and communities strong. Though interactive and experiential based training, we will explore these differences, their importance and ways to break through the biases and stereotypes that cause tension between people.

ANTI-RACISM
What is race? What is racism? Through dialogue, we will explore the topics of race, power and privilege, their history and where do we go from here.

UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
Diversity and Inclusion, civil rights, human rights… There has been a long fought battle to eradicate discrimination. Much attention has been paid to the overt and intentional “favoring” people have done. What about the underlying negative feelings towards some and the feeling of superiority towards others. Everyone has bias. This interactive training explores the biases people have and how can we be aware of them.

NEW CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE & RACISM
Created by The Saint Paul Foundation, New Conversations about Race and Racism is a discussion tool to help people talk about race & racism. During the course of New Conversations, participants watch scenarios on DVD and complete activities designed to help them explore and understand their perspectives and behaviors on the issue of race and racism.

Fees based on length of training, number of trainers and mileage. Contact dlalex99@gmail.com for more information.
