Online Instructor-Led Diversity and Inclusion Training
Opening the Window: Skills for Developing Self-Awareness and New Perspectives on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Available Formats: Virtual Classroom Course
This self-awareness and workplace inclusion course will:
Offer an explanation about how the brain’s hardwiring influences how we view in-group and out-of-group relationships.
Suggest tactics for overcoming biology and resistance to social changes that challenge what’s familiar.
Outline the effects of microaggressions and unintended acts of harm.
Recommend steps for increasing perspectives and effectiveness by growing circles of association and welcoming a broad range of viewpoints and people.
This course explains how the brain’s hardwiring creates patterned thinking and affects people’s perceptions of others. During the workshop, learners will discover how they can take control of their biology and rewire their thinking. The program addresses perceptions and how we view the world through a lens that’s formed and shaped by our experiences and values. The course also discusses tactics for adopting a growth versus fixed mindset and strategies for handling changes that create a sense of loss and uncertainty.

“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
