“Diversity: The art of thinking differently together.” Malcolm Forbes
We are extensions of our universe, which is where our diversity and brilliance come from. Together we can create a world that values everyone, and especially ourselves.
DISMANTLING MICROAGGRESSIONS/RESPECTFUL ENGAGEMENT IN THE WORKPLACE
Now includes more discussion on both Race & Gender
Like sarcasm or passive aggressive language, microaggressions are woven into the fabric of how we communicate consciously, and unconsciously, in and out of the workplace. We witness it in media where it’s okay to be bias of others. We grow up with unconscious bias’s and inherit language learned from our families, schools, and communities that can cause unintentional and intentional harm. Microaggressions wreak havoc on our personal relationships and professional performance; dampening productivity and affecting the bottom line of our organizations; impacting financial success.
This engaging training is designed to help your staff see though their biases to their team members as individuals who are humans, with sensitivities, flaws, and brilliance as they support each other in achieving the goals of the organization.
~ When we know who we are, can be with ourselves, and all that arises within us. When we know each other, we shine! ~ Lev
MEETING THIS MOMENT: Navigating Race in the Workplace
This workshop offers an opportunity to expand on the Unconscious Bias workshop above by providing safe and separate space for POC and white communities to share, process, vision, and resource themselves for a sustainable and productive work experience. We will share resources for staying healthy and productive in the workplace and beyond.
Sustainability Circles for Black employees – This conversation combines my work in restorative justice circles with my mediation training, and leadership models I earned at the Coaches Training Institute. (90-120 minutes each.) In addition, I’m offering workshops for all BIPOC, to discover ways to support each other and also strengthen growth and productivity in the workplace.
Introduction to White Ally-ship – This conversation is for anyone who identifies as white. We will provide a trained and experienced white-ally training to support you in your discoveries and shares. This first meeting is 2 hours, with an option to continue for 4 – 8 weeks to deepen your awareness.
In the moments we acknowledge we are here – we are awake! Be awake more often!
