About Equity Allies.
There are many options for diversity, equity, and inclusion training. Most are didactic, lecture-based learning. While those structures may allow clients to check the box of HR training compliance, Equity Allies offers a model that ensures long-lasting impact on organizations and individuals.
Recent data indicate that stress is embedded in the body, and that a significant source of stress originates from the lived experience of racial discrimination. Equity Allies promotes healing through a trauma-informed, body-first methodology that engages the nervous system, both physically and intellectually. This approach ensures that:
a. In addition to intellectual learning, the lived wisdom embedded within the bodies of participants is centered, surfaced, and honored, and the healing process is prioritized while avoiding re-traumatization. b. The tools for equity which are imparted and exercised interpersonally become embedded in muscle memory, allowing the individual greater agency to respond to harmful situations effectively, even through discomfort.
Instead of lecture-style training, Equity Allies offers activity-based learning that draws upon the wisdom present within the group and amplifies existing skills, while strengthening community. This asset-based approach acknowledges that participants are experts in their lived experiences and that their expertise is drawn upon in order to make individuals feel seen and valued. Equity Allies prioritizes collaborative learning and builds in plenty of opportunity for small group dialogue and co-created meaning. The outcome is a more engaging workshop, where participants are more likely to experience long-term impact from multi-sensory learning.
Whether your organization is seeking base-level learning for all employees, Train the Trainer employee learning to ensure effective integration of equity practices, or long-term consulting around equitable and inclusive policy and procedure, Equity Allies will ensure that your time is meaningfully spent and that the learning has measurable, deep-reaching impact.
