Event Details

NEW TOPICS FOR EACH SESSION! Uber conference 651.300.5500 Diversity Training Does Not Work: 5 ways to fix our work -We have all been to diversity trainings and found them lacking at best. The focus on blaming , shaming and faulting often leaves even people with the best intentions with a sour feeling about the subject. Focusing on the moral or immoral effects of discrimination, the political correctness affirmative action and the weak attempts to create inclusion programs have created people who were allies disgusted with the whole process. We will examine why the old methods don’t work and create a new paradigm the allows us to work towards measurable goals, action plans, clear outcomes and the development of cultural competence. Objectives: Identify and discuss diversity, inclusion and organizational capacity. Understand our socialization in this socio -economic culture. Learn definitions and guiding assumptions about affirmative action and equity. Increase awareness and understanding of individual, institutional and societal, cultural manifestations of diversity issues, discrimination and social justice. Understand conscious and unconscious effects of inequities, blame and fault. Explore the concepts of white privilege, collusion, internalized oppression, and empowerment as they pertain to economic status. Understand the simple rules to protect our organization from being sued. “Through innovative and interactive diversity education, personal empowerment, and team building, we help individuals and organizations approach old problems with new solutions.” We help Government and Educational organizations manage and train staff, employees, and clients on diversity issues without blame, fault or guilt. We understand that people are doing the best they can with what they have. Yet we encourage them to examine themselves, explore other cultures, and become allies for others. We work to move people's behaviors not by pushing them or making them feel guilty. We dissect, analyze, and make meaning of the issues that challenge us in a fair, balanced way that people can hear and understand. We motivate individuals to create something collaboratively.
