What to Expect

An 8-week curriculum that aids employees in gaining understanding of how we as individuals contribute to systems of inequities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to identify and explain various issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • Examine their own biases, beliefs, and attitudes towards others that don’t look like them

  • Explore ways with courage to oppose oppression, face and challenge bias and create a safe space where we value and respect other’s differences

  • Practice raising their voice with knowledge to educate and empower others as they lean into discomfort when venturing out of their comfort zone
