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."

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.
