You're invited to join our next public workshop on Thursday, June 20, 2024 at 12pm PST

We know unpacking bias can feel uncomfortable...

That's why we've created a container with space agreements where you can show up as your whole human self to learn and ask questions without judgment. This isn't a standard corporate style DEIB training.

We understand that for diversity, equity, and inclusion to be truly effective, there must be an emphasis on belonging. This means creating space for honest conversations and providing tools to help manage discomfort while examining bias.

Learn about what influences bias and ways to manage discomfort when navigating bias.

Together, we will explore:

  • Shared language on bias
  • What impacts bias
  • Different types of bias
  • Recognizing intersectionality
  • Using awareness to acknowledge others 

Finish with reflection exercises to acknowledge and honor the diverse lived experiences of others.

“The Examining Bias workshop was SO enlightening and impactful. Highly recommend!” Elisa Stampf, Insure Equality

Thanks to you for creating this container, for sharing your experiences, encouraging curiosity, and helping us ALL do better one conversation at a time.” -Michelle Sciuto, COO & Marketing Director

“I'm looking at my daily life through a slightly different prism since the training. Definitely regarding - presenting in public (with spouse), thinking of other's perspectives. There is a great need for this information out there.” -Brent Kuszyk, Marketing and Fundraising Consultant

“Very professional and friendly presentation. The space felt open, warm, and engaging. As per my understanding and expectations, the 90min was an overview on a deep topic. I appreciated the invitation to engage as well. What stuck most was the 5 reflection Q. I appreciated the encouragement to take a screen shot so I could reflect deeper later. I would love to sit with the questions and the answers that emerge in small breakout groups but that's a whole other workshop! I also appreciated all the personal stories shared. The environment feels safe and open to the messy that shows up. The energy is beautiful, kind, and serious.” -Sherry Horan, Team Development Facilitator
