Inclusive Virtual Learning

Virtual learning can be a challenge, especially when we aim to create equitable and inclusive learning environments. In this workshop, we use active learning to practice using a variety of tools, yet also have generative discussions that facilitate more conversation around inclusive instructional strategies. Best practices are modeled throughout the session, and exercises allow participants to experiment with various technologies.

Self-Awareness for Social Justice

How can we stand for social justice, if we don’t know where we stand? The journey of self-awareness unravels our biases, unpacks our privilege, unclasps our position, and unoccupies power. Knowing “woke” words, and discussing social justice isn’t enough. We must take action within ourselves while we also take action in our communities.

Find Your Sixth Sense: Asset Mindset

Our biases alter our perceptions, and influence our interactions with others. An asset mindset moves past implicit biases to see the value in others, and welcomes diverse ways of knowing and doing. We can transform and improve relationships by shifting from a deficit to an asset mindset. Change how you see colleagues, classmates, family or students by finding your sixth sense.

DEI Strategic Planning

Whether you want to develop a strategy for diversity, equity, and inclusion, evaluate the one you have, or invigorate efforts, we can help. We facilitate collaborative sessions that drive collective decisions for DEI in your organization.

Nontraditional Careers

Nontraditional careers are any in which one gender represents less than 25% of the workforce. For example, women in engineering or men in nursing. When many of these careers are high-wage, and high-demand jobs, it is imperative that we remove barriers and increase the participation and completion of women and men in nontraditional educational pathways. This workshop equips educators with tools and strategies for recruitment and retention.

Inclusive Leadership

Belonging and being valued are fundamental human needs. Inclusive leadership not only helps to address these two crucial needs, but also enhances performance, collaboration, attendance, and reduces turnover. In this program, we examine six traits of inclusive leaders and specific strategies for transforming our practice.

Equal Opportunity Isn’t Equal for Everyone

Equal opportunity is both a legal term and colloquialism. We have “equal opportunity” employers, and many people hold beliefs that everyone has equal opportunity to success. Some might align this belief with the American Dream, rags to riches, or bootstrap ideologies. In this course, I’ll introduce specific historical and systemic reasons for why equal opportunity isn’t equal for everyone.

Deconstructing Bias in Systems

Our systems create what we programmed them to create. If our output doesn't match what we desire, how are we changing the system to facilitate an improved output? Climate is a function of the system and the people that hold it up. If we want DEI issues to be considered important, how does the system support that output? In this session, we'll learn strategies to influence the system around us to create an equitable and inclusive climate.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Mindset

In this session, we'll unpack the six characteristics of DEI mindset for educators and leave with strategies to apply to our practice.

Inclusive Engineering Design Practices

Design thinking fuels innovation. It is a solution-oriented process with considerations about the consumer at the heart of all development stages. Truly empathic and inclusive design requires a multi-cultural competence and awareness that can be cultivated and developed. In this session, we examine best practices for engineering inclusive technological solutions.

More units

This unit introduces systems of advantage and systems of oppression. It draws out fear and directs people towards problem-solving systems, not merely themselves.

This unit introduces how privilege, stereotypes, and implicit bias work in our brains to create blindspots that, with effort, we can learn to recognize and adjust behavior.

Empathy is a skill that can bring people together and make people feel included. This unit assists participants in reviving an updated version of the golden rule.

People like to improve themselves, as is evidenced by the huge market of self-help books and programs. Leveraging this energy, we shift towards a collectivist approach to improve society.

What else might be true? Instead of jumping to conclusions that are usually aligned to stereotypes and bias, we activate an asset mindset that allows us to first recognize the value in others.

To make change, we must interrupt the cycles of inequity. This unit helps participants to practice speaking-up to call others in and call out systemic inequities.

To create inclusive environments, we must learn the dance of when to step-up to advocate for the marginalized and oppressed, and when to step back to make space for others to shine.

Learning to be an inclusive person is a lifestyle practice that, with effort, we can all adapt and share a journey of continuous improvement.

Are you brave enough to listen like Wonder Woman?

When we listen, we are more likely to learn about others’ experiences and increase our understanding of the need for equity and justice. In this post, I channel Wonder Woman as an inspiration for using our power for good, listening to others’ needs, and being brave and courageous in taking bold steps toward change. You’ll learn the three levels of listening and a helpful acrostic for practicing excellent listening skills.

Can people change? Swish swish

I’m in the business of change. Whether that is changing hearts and minds or complex institutional systems, change is at the core of everything I do and believe. However, just like every other human brain, my brain is not immune to bias and often cues beliefs opposite to the hope for change. In this post, I share a story from a client engagement that I recall as often as necessary to remind myself that people can change, no matter how challenging they might be. The post is summed up by five takeaways and strategies, with a fun, bonus pop culture reference that involves a shark. Swish swish! Read on to understand what that means.
