Foundational Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Education Workshops

Embracing diversity is more than counting the number of non-white people in an organization or hiring one person with a disability for check box optics. Recruiting and retaining talent from historically excluded populations starts with awareness and understanding. 

Education is the gateway to safe equitable staff engagement. 
  • Does your staff know how ableist language sounds? 
  • Are your teams prepared to respectfully welcome Indigenous staff, clients, and patrons?
  • Do your managers know how racist, sexist, and heteronormative practices impact their staff? 
  • What avenues has your organization created to endorse allyship? 
Without truth, there can be no reconciliation.

Rooted in Indigenous and African diasporic values, Rick McLean and I provide those ready to learn with the opportunity to challenge everyday discrimination through storytelling, historical facts, and relationship building. 

Assimilation is not inclusion.

The normalization of discrimination has allowed disparity to become an entrenched underpinning of the current workforce. Like air, exclusion and prejudice are practices we have all internalized and need to unlearn. If your organization would like to be an active part of the solution, schedule an inquiry call for us to discuss your staff's learning goals.

Words Carry Weight: An Examination of Workplace Language & Discrimination.

By: Kimberley John-Morgan.

This three-hour session examines the harm caused by words and phrases normalized across the workforce. Through learning where and how to identify discriminatory language, staff at all levels can effectively become everyday allies in support of establishing more inclusive spaces.

Indigenous Allyship.

By: McLean Consulting Group.

This three-hour session gives allies (those who want to help) the information, perspectives, and resources to start supporting positive change informed by the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action (TRC) and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP).

These workshops can be delivered virtually or in person, and you can choose to spend a day with us to include both workshops or book them separately. We tailor our content to your unique needs while ensuring that critical learning outcomes are covered.
