Online and Blended Learning

Business leaders, Human Resource specialists, managers and practitioners alike are seeking more effective ways to teach and apply new concepts and skills. One off learning experiences do not promote learning transfer. Learning transfer happens when a learner is able to apply the behavior, knowledge, and skills acquired in a learning event to the job, with a resulting improvement in job performance.

Online and blended learning extends one off training experiences and promotes learning transfer by offering ongoing access to content, experts and a cohort of colleagues. Learning with and from others who are wrestling with some of the same issues or have different experience to share is incredibly helpful for real time and just in time processing of information. Further, learning that happens over a period of time allows participants to practice with new concepts and skills, reflect on the experience, get support and guidance from experts and colleagues and make real time adjustments.

The Equity Toolkit online courses provide essential elements needed to empower you to examine your approach, and impact, related to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion goals.

Participants will be given the tools to design and advocate for future Equity, Diversity and Inclusion efforts; measure and enhance current efforts. The Equity Toolkit series reflects the topics most requested describe some of the major pitfalls to avoid, provide guidance about the scaffolding associated with effective and sustainable approaches, and develop the cultural competence necessary for truly inclusive communities and workplaces.

Why Build Cultural Competence? 

DeEtta Jones and Associates focuses on developing cultural competence that can be used to enhance an organization’s culture and performance. Cultural competence is a skill set; the confidence and competence to effectively move in and out of diverse relationships and experiences.

Cultural competence is required in today’s diverse community settings. Rather than a static learning specific to only one national, ethnic, generational, or other group, our approach to cultural competence combines cultural knowledge, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal skills that can be adapted to achieve improved interpersonal and organizational results in any cross-cultural situation.

Further, DJA works with leaders on understanding, messaging and thoughtful approaches for ensuring that cultural competence is a skill being developed throughout the organization, and shows up in an integrative way in the organization’s strategic endeavors.

After attending many training sessions over the years about equity, diversity and inclusion, I found this online course to informative and actionable at the same time.
- Reducing The Negative Impact of Bias in the Workplace
Placeholder Image
The 'Essentials of Cultural Competence' really opened my eyes to more ways that I could be working to make my workplace more diverse and inclusive.  In particular, I loved how the course taught the concept of the 'Bell-shaped model' to not only debunk common myths about teams, but to show the impact that diversity can have on a team's effectiveness.  The action plan at the end also showed a pathway to moving forward with intentionality--leading from a concept to an action plan.  I can use this new knowledge in my workplace every day!

I also love the downloadable tools- they are very useful. I'm really enjoying this class and it's giving me a fresh take on things.

This course is AMAZING. It's exactly what is needed right now in our world and our workplace and elevates the diversity discussion to a place that is truly meaningful and transformative. This should become basic training for all staff members.
