We are currently offering the following three trainings:


Who's In The Room

A facilitated activity and debrief that allows students to become more familiar with the importance of identity. Students will be able to recognize various aspects of their personal and social identities and have a discussion about who they are. “Who’s in the Room?” is perfect for First Year Experience classes and other groups that may be new to discussion diversity related topics.

Length of Time: 30-45mins
Maximum number of in-person participants: 30
Zoom presentation: no max.


Introduction To Implicit Bias

This is a more advanced session that delves into participants' experiences and understanding of themselves and how they interact with others. This training aims to unpack systems of power and oppression, how our identities fall within those categories and how our actions are affected.

Length of Time: 60 mins
Maximum Number of in-person participants: 30
Zoom presentation: no max


Cultural Humility

A general training that introduces participants to the concept of cultural humility. Cultural humility challenges the notion that one can achieve cultural competency in a short 'diversity training' or with a lifetime of experience. Instead, participants will leave this session understanding the importance of self-reflection, developing diverse partnerships, and addressing power imbalances they encounter.
