Our team of Gender & DEI Specialists have extensive experience in delivering engaging and interactive workshops.

Our workshops can be delivered either virtually or in-person to meet the needs of your organization.

Creating a Respectful Workplace (*CCA Gold Seal Accredited):

This workshop empowers participants with the necessary tools to establish and maintain a respectful workplace where everyone feels a sense of belonging. It addresses issues such as harassment, discrimination, and bullying while also highlighting how leaders, managers, supervisors, and employees can collaborate to build and promote a respectful inclusive work environment.

Diversity, Inclusion & You:

This workshop provides participants with practical and foundational knowledge about diversity and inclusion. It explores the continuous process of fostering an inclusive mindset and introduces concepts such as unconscious bias, as well as the barriers and benefits of diversity and inclusion. By the end of this module, participants will enhance their communication skills and inclusivity in the workplace, having increased their understanding of diversity and inclusion.

Inclusive Leadership:

This workshop explores the essence of what it truly means to be inclusive. It equips participants with effective strategies for leading diverse teams, guiding employee engagement, and developing essential skills for being an inclusive leader. Topics covered include equality, diversity, and empowering participants with the knowledge to foster team and organizational growth, improve performance and enhance personal satisfaction. This workshop is suitable for leaders, managers, and supervisors – anyone responsible for leading people or having direct reports.

Microaggressions in the Workplace:

This training enlightens participants about “microaggressions” and their occurrence in the workplace. It helps individuals recognize the importance of addressing microaggressions, understand their impact on individuals and learn practical strategies to navigate them effectively, whether as a target, bystander or even a microaggressor.

Allyship in the Workplace:

This workshop focuses on the significance of allyship and what it means to be an ally in the workplace.  Participants gain insights into different types of allies and acquire practical strategies for acting in allyship with groups and communities that experience discrimination and exclusion, both socially, and economically. Real-life case studies are used to facilitate these learnings, and key takeaways are shared for immediate implementation. 

Unconscious Bias:

This workshop dives into bias and the impacts it can have in personal and professional settings. Participants will gain a clear understanding of bias, learn how to recognize its many forms, and engage in reflective exercises to acknowledge possible impact. The goal of this workshop is to illuminate the presence of bias and to provide strategies to create a more inclusive and supportive environment.
