DEI Workshops

prevent & reposition

Our Workshops support professional and personal development, relationship building, and community development. We use an interactive approach and create opportunities for participants to begin practicing what they learn.

Our workshops are founded on the belief that when individuals deeply connect to and understand their own identities, they are better able to contribute meaningfully to creating a more inclusive and equitable community. Meaningful understanding of and  connection to identity allows people, communities, and organizations to build bonded relationships, create meaningful resolutions, and do the difficult work of challenging structural racism and bias.


  • Exploring Your Identity
  • Our Identity and Our Interactions with Others
