DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUTSION

MOVE FROM COMPLIANCE TO CULTURE DEVELOPMENT

OVERVIEW 

As today’s headlines prove, an inclusive work environment is not just a nice-to-have, it can make or break a company.

 

You can help make your organization a more supportive and engaging place to work by understanding the perceptual, institutional, and psychological processes that impact the ways people interact with each other.

 

Starting with a look at employee engagement, then identifying interventions surrounding unconscious bias and specific diversity and inclusion strategies, our programs are appropriate for anyone committed to going beyond mere compliance to building a truly aware and inclusive work culture.

WHY DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION MATTERS

In our workshop series, we enable thought-provoking discussions that challenge assumptions and lead to a deeper understanding of power, privilege and the ability to see through multiple lenses.

 

The result is the creation of meaningful discussions and necessary tools to help generate forward-thinking attitudes towards diversity, inclusion and creating a shared sense of belonging.

 

Our interactive workshop will create a dialogue around discrimination, stereotypes and other important social issues.

 

Our aim is to educate participants and encourage them to develop an equity lens by eliminating stereotypes and challenging societal norms that marginalize others. Ensuring equity is essential for improving mental health and well-being.

INCLUSIVE TEAM BUILDING


What is an inclusive team? How do we build inclusion into our team culture? If your team is newly formed or has gone through organizational change, this workshop is for you. In this inclusive team-building workshop, Colleen will help your team understand the dimensions of their diversity and create a free-flowing session where they will bring their authentic selves to work.

EQUITY & INCLUSION 101

Lack of diversity in leadership and board governance is an issue many volunteer organizations face on attracting diverse team members is as important as understanding how to retain them.

Understanding and practicing equity and inclusion is vital for organizations striving to meet the needs of their diverse stakeholders. A people first mentality is essential to move forward in equity and to promote an inclusive organizational culture.

Our equity and inclusion training will spark discussions and create concrete action plans for your board or volunteer organization.

INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP FOR EXECUTIVES


Managers and leaders have an essential role in ensuring that their employees feel safe and included. In this training, we will talk about how to manage the discomfort that can happen when we discuss issues of inclusion and diversity. Inclusive leadership means being able to have uncomfortable conversations in order to solve problems and meet goals. 

                  

UNCONSCIOUS BIAS - CLINICAL SUPERVISION


What exactly IS anti-oppressive practice and how do I know if I'm doing it? As mental health practitioners, we aim for our work to be affirming, and supportive in every way possible. In reality, however, navigating discussions about race, culture, religion and orientation can be complex.

 

Good mental health care requires us to be aware of our own biases and the ways that they can appear in our work. Sometimes these are best uncovered through working with others.  

 

Supervision can include work on understanding the role(s) that personal social locations have in service provision, for both the practitioner and client.
