We are excited to offer a 4-session training series for those interested in starting (or continuing) the essential work of incorporating DEI practices and principles into your community (including online/physical spaces, youth and adult programming, religious school, High Holiday planning, membership outreach and more). **Please note that session 1, DEI 101, is a standalone workshop open to anyone and everyone, which you can select in the registration below.**
This series will provide you with the opportunity to learn how to create a DEI Working Group focused on utilizing the Congregational Assessment, so that you can identify both short and long term goals and establish action plans towards creating an inclusive community for individuals and families from a wide range of backgrounds.
This training will consist of four 90-minute live sessions. Please note that anyone joining us for this series will be asked to commit to attending the first three sessions, as each session builds upon the previous one. With the goal of creating a safe and vulnerable space, sessions will not be recorded. This will be an interactive training, so please plan on being an active participant.
