This Fall, we are continuing to emphasize online learning options for leaders and employees. We encourage all staff and leaders to activate their LinkedIn Learning accounts and explore the multitude of courses available. Visit our list of online resources on a number of foundational and transferable skills.
Live remote learning sessions are included below.

“But where are you really from?”: Exploring Anti-racism, Allyship & Belonging in the Workplace
This interactive workshop takes learners on a deep dive to explore racism and white supremacy in our daily lives, including our workplaces. Through a brief review of resources and historical context, reflection, discussion, and skills-building activities, this training will provide participants with a critical lens to recognize how racism manifests in our systems of power and in our everyday interactions.

Leading from the Intersections
We all have many layers to our identities and intersectionality is a way to understand how power and privilege impact the lives of people with diverse identities. To be an inclusive we need to ask critical questions like: How does understanding our own intersectional identity help us be a more inclusive? What are some best practices for working inclusively at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and (dis)ability? In this workshop we will explore how we can use an intersectional approach to better understand our own frames of references, how it may differ from others, and to become more culturally safe and responsive in our practice.

Giving Effective Presentations
So often we find ourselves faced with a looming presentation, unsure of what to do: either to conquer our "stage fright", survive the experience without losing our voice or just spice things up for our own enjoyment. In this workshop we will break down the different elements that lead to memorable, informative and engaging presentations.
