Why DEI trainings?
DEI trainings can be an effective starting point to a long-term strategy, as well as a vital course-correction when challenges arise. We encourage our clients to think beyond compliance, and beyond ‘checking a box.’
The workshops and trainings our consultants provide are entry points for transformational, expansive discussions on how everyone in the workplace can more effectively show up for one another.
At JBC, we believe in creating a training atmosphere where all participants become comfortable with being uncomfortable, and have the space and tools to recognize the ways that bias can show up in themselves and in others. We have worked with clients at all stages of their DEI journey. No matter where you are on yours, we can help.
Curriculum frequently includes "Why Diversity Matters—Moving Beyond Compliance," during which our facilitators demonstrate the evolving business case for DEI as a tool for working more effectively and driving business outcomes; Learning the Fundamentals; and Effective Practices, such as Reflective Listening, The Five Levels of Inclusion, and Intent vs. Impact.
Unconscious biases are created and often reinforced by our environments and experiences. In this training, we help employees understand how our brains work when we think about difference and sameness, identify potential individual and organizational biases, implement techniques for responding to unconscious bias and to limit microinequities while also implementing inclusive behaviors.
This program is designed to take you through the Inclusive Leader Continuum model from Jennifer Brown's book, How to Be an Inclusive Leader: Your Role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive. Each module—Unaware, Aware, Active, and Advocate—will meet participants where they are and help them determine how they begin to step into the shoes of an inclusive leader.
This program is designed to help employees interact with people outside of their office, such as customers, suppliers, partners, or overseas colleagues who come from different cultural backgrounds. This training will help improve communication and understanding, strengthen team dynamics, and ensure individuals are empowered to work where they are most effective.
This program is designed to deepen participants' understanding of how to be an antiracist and practice thoughtful allyship. In response to the seismic changes taking place in our society and how organizations address race, this session will equip everyone to pragmatically answer the question: 'What can I do?'
IMMERSIVE TRAINING SERIES
Change takes time. Too often we see teaching delivered as a ‘one-and-done’. With our Immersive Training Series we take a DEI Topic such as unconscious bias, allyship, or inclusive leadership and dive deeper. We spread the learning across 6 sessions with more opportunities for interaction in order to change muscle memory and drive proven results within your organization.
LEADING IN THE ERA OF #METOO
This program is designed to equip leaders and managers with the tools to take the right actions, and be a part of the change during the era of #MeToo. It focuses on providing the skills and competencies that are necessary to building inclusive cultures while covering what power dynamics could be at play, and what policies, practices, and produces can serve to protect individuals and companies.
JBC spoke about diversity and inclusion in such a way that our attendees were truly able to connect with and understand the significance of this topic in the business world today.
