Don't see eye to eye with someone you care about?
Sick of being the ___________ friend?
Are words like privilege, oppression, and privilege trigger words for you, family, or friends?
The Inclusion Center provides tools and baseline language to navigate these difficult discussions with family, friends, and colleagues.
"As a Human Resources director, I’m often asked questions about creating an inclusive and diverse workplace. My experience within an ICCJ program empowered me to model the kind of healthy, inclusive behavior we need to create the kind of workplace in which each employee can thrive. My life is better and richer because I attended ICCJ’s programming.”
-Glen Brown, Human Resources Director, CODALE Electric Supply, Inc.
Introduction to Human Relations
This is an introduction to our work. We discuss Terms and Definitions such as bias, privilege, oppression, and discrimination, and explore the levels of violence in which oppression plays out.
Multi Faceted Identities is an interactive workshop, examining aspects of our identity that are most present for us in our daily lives. We acknowledge that all of us have complex, multifaceted identities, and discuss the dynamic influences our identity shapes our interactions with others.
Person In Environment & Mapping the Governed Body
Person In Environment/Mapping of the Governed Body, is a semi interactive, more discussion type workshop. We examine how no person is without their environment and how we all are impacted by systems of dominations. We explore our beliefs/values, and discuss how our beliefs are shaped by broader systems.
In Unpacking Privilege, we dissect the feeling of discomfort when discussing topics surrounding privilege. We define privilege, acknowledge what systems we benefit from, and examine the responsibilities that come with our privilege.
Gender Pronoun Workshop
Our Gender Pronoun Workshop dissects understandings of sex, gender, and sexuality as complex, unstable categories. We discuss identity and the sex/gender binary. We examine gender pronouns, and why they matter, and how to incorporate them.
After consulting with you about your needs and what specific topics you hope to be covered in our workshop, our team will collaborate and create a program that speaks into specified subject matters. Workshops can be a combination or version of workshops above, as well as a new development of programming to better address specific topics. Examples of topics could be unconscious bias in the workplace, examining the benefits and hardships of diverse spaces, or effective conflict resolution across difference.
