Let's Make the World Better

I’m excited to introduce a new webinar series designed to help anyone increase their social awareness and equip themselves with tools for action. If you want to live in a more just world, then I hope you will tune-in! Together, we can make the world better.


My goal is to increase awareness and initiate action. You'll learn research-based theories coupled with memorable metaphors, followed by actionable strategies.

Open Enrollment

All are welcome. If you are a professional who wants to create a more inclusive workspace, and educator who strives for a more equitable classroom, or a human who wants improved relationships, this series is for you (and everyone!).

No Cost

Access is my priority for these webinars, so I am offering them at no cost. In addition, attendees will occasionally receive special offers for discounts on my books and services during the webinars.

More Topics and Dates to Come

Can't make it to one of the listed dates? Stay tuned. I'm building more content and adding more dates!

Aimed to teach and equip you, topics bridge theory and strategy.

Upcoming Webinars


Registration is super easy! Use the easy one click registration for each of the sessions you'd like to attend. You'll then receive an email notification, and reminders as the event approaches.


This work is best done with a community of people who you can share the journey, and grow together. Please invite your colleagues and friends who might also enjoy learning with you.

Scheduled Live Webinars

​There are more webinars on the books (see details on this page), but not all dates are set and included in the following schedule. 

Everyone has a brain and everyone has bias. If we use our brains to understand and combat unconscious bias, we can create a more inclusive and just world.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Review some of the barriers to an inclusive and just world.
  • Outline 14 key terms to add to or reinforce your vocabulary.
  • Examine 8 neural mechanisms in our brains that support prejudice and stereotypes, the underlying functions of bias.
  • Identify 9 self-regulation strategies to reduce prejudice and stereotypes.

We will explore how our brain can work against our best intentions, and what we can do to be more kind and inclusive.

Together, let’s unravel the bias in our brains.

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. 

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.

Sticky Feedback is Best

Throughout our lifetime, we get tons of feedback, and the feedback we receive affects our motivation. Feedback and support from others is a source of our self-efficacy — the belief we have in ourselves to accomplish a task. Using a simple formula, we can adjust our feedback to be a super-booster for self-efficacy in others, through what I call, “Sticky Feedback.” In this webinar, you will learn how you can better encourage others to reach their goals.

I am still planning this session, and will set the date and time a few weeks in advance. Please make sure you are on my mailing list, so that you’ll be alerted when details are finalized.

Update Your Prescription: Develop a Color-Rich Perspective

Some of us have rose-colored glasses on and don’t even know it. Some us haven’t examined our life lens in a while and don’t realize how much “grime” has built up. Some of us have a very old prescription that distorts our view of the world. Some of us were raised to “not see color.” In this color blind, we will discuss how to identify and update your life lens for a color-rich, diverse, and inclusive perspective.

I am still planning this session, and will set the date and time a few weeks in advance. Please make sure you are on my mailing list, so that you’ll be alerted when details are finalized.

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 your way to success ideologies. In this webinar, I’ll introduce specific historical and systemic reasons for why equal opportunity isn’t equal for everyone.

I am still planning this session, and will set the date and time a few weeks in advance. Please make sure you are on my mailing list, so that you’ll be alerted when details are finalized.

Nontraditional Careers in CTE and STEM

Nontraditional Careers in CTE and STEM

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.
