Building Blocks of Inclusion

Building Blocks of Inclusion (BBI) is a 4- 6-part series equipping business and nonprofit professionals with the language and knowledge necessary to recruit & retain a diverse workforce while demonstrating a top-down company value of inclusivity. BBI includes presentations from experts, facilitated dialogues, and interactive skills training. Throughout this customized course, participants develop a better understanding of how their customers’ and employees’ diverse identities impact how they perceive and experience their organizations, work spaces, services, and community.

From leadership development, to cross-cultural communication and inclusive office culture, BBI prepares participants to go beyond Taco Tuesdays and language policing to truly understanding diversity and inclusion’s impact on hiring practices, employee performance, group think, and productivity.

Project READI

business photoProject READI (Respect, Equity, Access, Diversity, & Inclusion) is a year-long human relations, diversity awareness and leadership development program for administrative and direct-line professionals. Project READI is designed to help employees understand their role and responsibility in creating an organizational culture where everyone can learn, communicate, and work in collaboration and mutual respect.

A full day workshop kicks-off the program year by providing participants with a foundation level of terms and language, and an introduction to issues of age, faith, ability, gender, orientation, class, appearance, and race. Then a trained program staff co-leads monthly staff meetings and supports your organization with facilitating a mixture of staff development trainings, experiential leadership workshops, office dialogues and company-wide interactive educational campaigns. These activities challenge participants to leave their “comfort zone” and empowers them to become positive role models and future leaders of inclusion.
