What participants are saying...

"This course provided a welcoming and trusting container for discussion. There was a high degree of trust built internationally with our small groups and the larger group to be able to engage in vulnerable conversations. The protocols used were impactful and having the opportunity to hear different perspectives, and have a group of equally vulnerable participants pushing and helping you think through your ideas, is incredibly valuable."

"This series dives deep in making deep changes in equity practices. The content is a combination of personal reflection and accountability alongside tactical and practice change. The further I went along in the course, the more importance it took on as I realized how transformative the principles are. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to make real, not just surface level change, in equity."

 

What you will learn in the Series

  • Tools to kick off your team well and create an equitable and inclusive team culture

  • Tools to set goals, share accountability, and decision making with your team in ways that center equity and belonging

What is included in the Series

  • 6 self-paced, asynchronous modules

  • 7 live, weekly online sessions  

  • Small learning groups* 

  • Weekly optional office hours

  • Access to a growing network of people committed to change their practices and behaviors to create more equitable workplaces 

*​In addition to learning groups, we will occasionally use racial affinity spaces to debrief our learning. We use racial affinity spaces to help create psychological safety in our learning community.

Time Commitment: The Manager Series is a 7 week series, with weekly 90-minute live sessions with self-paced sessions in between live sessions. We estimate the self-paced sessions will take between 2-4 hours each week.

 

Who the Series is for

Managers who recognize how they lead their teams shapes feelings of belonging, inclusion, equity, and how their teams can show up at work.


Our participants are committed to changing their management practices to achieve racial equity and improve inclusion and belonging on their teams.  This series will provide tools to do just that.

 

What this Series is NOT

This series is not a racism 101 series.  To get the most out of the series, participants should be familiar with power, privilege, oppression, and the history of race and racism in the United States. 


Participants should also be comfortable discussing and examining their own racial and cultural background, power, and privileges. 

This series also assumes that those who chose to participate believe that race and social cultural identity plays a role on how people experience work, and that racial bias leads to disparate outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and other staff of color.  

 

Cost of the Series 

$1,200 per person
