Why Our Course
This course prepares individuals to make decisions and act more equitably in both their personal and professional lives. Throughout this course, you may experience constructive discomfort that helps pave the way for meaningful, long-lasting change. After taking this course, we hope you achieve perspective transformation – the idea that once individuals know, think, and believe something different, they will decide, behave, and act differently.

"It is a privilege to be able to take two days of time out of day-to-day work and dive deeply into the world of EDI. The training re-grounded me in the systems of privilege and oppression that impact the communities I live and work in and gave me new tools for addressing those issues in my work & personal life."
