About Equity Allies.
There are many options for diversity, equity, and inclusion training. Although didactic, lecture-based learning is common, those structures may allow clients to check the box of HR training compliance, Equity Allies offers a model that goes beyond the average course and ensures long-lasting impact on organizations and individuals.
Instead of lecture-style instruction, Equity Allies offers engaging workshops and activity-based courses that draw upon the wisdom and existing skills present within the group. By prioritizing collaborative learning and incorporating opportunities for small group dialogue, participants are more likely to experience everlasting impact from this multi-sensory approach.
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' methodology promotes physical and intellectual healing through informed research development.
This approach assures that:
A. In addition to intellectual learning, the experience and wisdom of participants is centered, surfaced and honored. The healing process is prioritized while avoiding re-traumatization.
B. The tools for equity become rooted in muscle memory. While exercised interpersonally, this allows the individual to effectively and professionally respond to harmful situations, even through discomfort.
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, Equity Allies will guarantee that your time is meaningfully spent and that the knowledge gained has enduring effect.
