We take pride in our ability to create an inclusive environment in which each member of the community is valued, respected, and can fully contribute their talents. That includes reducing bias and increasing the diversity of the employee and management population.

How

With decades of experience, the B2B team of psychologists, attorneys and corporate trainers focus on creating content that gets results.

We will conduct an initial needs analysis to align our solutions to internal outcomes that are sustainable and scalable so that systemic and long-lasting change is possible.

Strategies include:

1.) Training that cuts to the heart of developing inclusive environments of success for all employees regardless of race, culture, gender and any other differences.

2.) Development of internal policy documents and codes of conduct

3.) Implicit Bias training that allow managers and leaders to self-identify their own bias and tools to self-correct.

Learning Outcomes

Become more skillful interpersonally: The great thing about effectively communicating and interacting with others is that you can be highly skillful without being just like the other person in temperament, ideology, personality, belief-systems, etc. You're still you, only better. And when you are highly skillful, you can build respectful, trusting, and collaborative relationships that make work life better for everyone, including you!

Learn about cognitive biases: And now for some science! When you think of challenging situations with people who aren't you, do you ever view those people as an adversary? If so, there's a good chance that an unconscious cognitive bias is hijacking your thinking and preventing you from perceiving situations and people in an entirely rational way. We will help in building awareness of your unconscious biases to prevent them from skewing your perceptions and making life harder to deal with than it needs to be.

Our Team

With decades of experience, the B2B team of educators, psychologists and corporate trainers focus on creating content that ensures measurable indicators of success.
Our experts will conduct an initial needs analysis to align solutions to internal outcomes that are sustainable and scalable so that systemic and long-lasting change is possible.

Strategies include:

1.) Development of internal policy documents and codes of conduct.

2.) Implicit Bias training that have been critical for educators and administrators.

3.) Classroom sessions that are proven effective in reducing disciplinary actions.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discover the critical connections between student learning, culturally responsive practices and neuroscience that makes social-emotional learning (SEL) and development central to equity
  • Identify the implicit biases that impact educational and institutional culture and climate and re-focus the cultural lens that influences teaching and learning
  • Build understanding of social-emotional expression and create an SEL "playbook" of strategies that leverage collective impact
  • Create systems that promote cultural responsiveness and culturally relevant pedagogy to increase student agency and foster academic success for all students

Who should attend?

  • PK-20 Educators and Educational Stakeholders
  • District & Institutional Leadership and Administration
  • Community, Municipal and Business Partners

Through deep collaboration we can

1.) Identify systems of inequality
The focus here is to help participants identify systems of deficit thinking that has been shown to have negative impact on student outcomes. Instead we want to shift the paradigm towards learning partnerships through authentic connection. In addition, we will examine how to shift instructional delivery to be more culturally responsive.

2.) Provide scalable solutions
Cultural responsiveness is more than creating multicultural content. Instead, it is a focus on developing one's ability to process information through the lens of others in real time. We will identify the processes for this type of responsiveness and how it can be used as a tool to make content more authentically relevant. These lessons will leverage culture as a framework for processing new content.

3.) Operationalize equitable practices
By examining the connection between social-emotional wellbeing and performance we will explore how to create an emotionally and intellectually safe space for students and teachers. Going beyond presenting the principles of diversity to understand how we can integrate relational aspects into instruction to help students build an authentic connection that will have a positive impact on student performance.
