But How Do You DO "it"?
“We have sent people to training, but what we “really” need is a way to integrate inclusive practices into daily routines.”
“We need our managers to understand their role, and have the knowledge, tools, and skills to help cascade our values into the organization’s culture.”
The Inclusive Facilitation Train-the-Trainer creates the much-needed connection between training and organizational impact. The course equips managers and others who can influence organizational culture with the knowledge, skills, and tools to be in-house facilitators of equity, diversity and inclusion work.
Participants deepen their self-awareness and around issues of antiracism and anti-oppression, learn core techniques associated with facilitation, and identify specific inclusive behaviors to practice in their own work. This course is delivered virtually, ensuring that participants learn techniques for facilitating in multiple formats.
Developed and launched in collaboration with Harvard University, the course is anchored by The Conversation, a book by Robert Livingston, to ensure a solid research base. DJA poured our decades of facilitation expertise into creating a learning experience that can be immediately applied in any workplace setting. The full curriculum includes:
- Six micro-courses with videos, expert instruction, and downloadable resources
- Four live facilitated sessions with exceptional faculty to practice inclusive facilitation techniques and receive real-time feedback
- A customizable Inclusive Facilitation Workbook with reference to all the core facilitation tools needed and prompts for added each person’s own facilitation notes and prompts as you begin your practice
This course is about taking action and making a real impact.
