EQUITY TRAINING &

 

DEVELOPMENT

By taking steps to bring equity resources into your organization, you are making space to discuss internal biases and adopt practices that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for all. As an organization and as individuals, you are starting with an honest internal dialogue that encourages your staff and board members to reflect, listen to each other, and learn from one another's experiences.

Aside from inclusive and equitable services, research has shown the positive impact of inclusive practices to a company’s ability to attract and retain talent. Studies prove that ongoing professional development is the single most important factor in recruiting and retaining quality employees. Employees of organizations that adopt inclusive practices tend to express greater job satisfaction, regardless of their identity. Studies have also shown that more diverse staff can foster innovation in practice. When an organization’s board members, employees, and others come from a wide array of backgrounds, they each bring unique perspectives that shape, blend, and influence how to advance your mission and solve problems in potentially more inclusive and innovative ways.

Our curriculum development and training packages include a comprehensive range of topics from addressing and understanding power, social location, unconscious bias, to anti-Black racism,
