Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has become a prominent subject of focus for businesses and programs across the country, often targeting hiring practices, company culture, and political policy, but what does it mean? In this interactive training, we forget the politics and break down the fundamentals of DEI. Participants will learn what DEI means, how it can positively impact our society and workplace culture,  what implicit bias is and how it fits in, and most importantly: how true DEI is more than an initiative – It’s a mindset!

This workshop educates individuals on how to open their perspectives and worldviews to accept, appreciate, and support diverse populations. It provides an opportunity to heal from implicit bias that can be traumatizing and reduces the amount of segregation and discrimination people experience especially within the workplace.  The workshop will also help individuals understand their own personal bias and propensity for judgement in a way that encourages a significant reduction in stigma surrounding stereotyped groups.


  • Develop a basic understanding of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Identify how the “DEI Mindset” can improve our society and ability to connect with others
  • Define, recognize, and begin to heal from Implicit Bias
  • Find opportunities by busting down DEI barriers
  • Discover how to have the conversation and change the world
