As a standard practice, VISIONS tailors core training materials and course emphasis to fit participants’ needs. However, VISIONS also offers training, seminars and workshops for specific client needs around diversity and inclusion issues.
Examples of these might be:
- A presentation, talk, or interactive discussion for a school group, organization event, board of trustees, work group, or management team on a particular topic related to cultural identities, difference, unconscious bias, or a challenging diversity-related issue.
- A full or half-day seminar designed to create “buy-in” to an organization’s diversity and inclusion initiative.
- PACE (Personal Approach to Change and Equity) Workshop designed exclusively for an organization or community, both in curricula, timeframe and location.
- YES! Kit training for organizations that have purchased these materials and desire additional expertise and support.
In 2010, 42 researchers from around the world gathered for a four-day World Cohort Integration Workshop sponsored by Harvard School of Public Health. Day 1 was devoted solely to issues of cross-cultural collaboration—a customized training led by VISIONS.
