An Introduction to Working with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - Training of Trainers

Fri Feb 5, 13:00 - Fri Feb 5, 17:00


Are you a trainer who is increasingly receiving requests from clients for training related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)? 

Are you a facilitator who is increasingly receiving requests for assistance navigating conversations or conflicts related to DEI?

Are you a coach whose clients would benefit from a deeper understanding of how DEI impacts on their personal and professional growth? 

Do you wish you could have more productive conversations with your clients about DEI? 

Do you wish you had the skills to help your clients better understand DEI?

If you answered yes to any of these questions (or maybe all of them), we invite you to join us for an introductory 4-hour online training for trainers. In this introductory workshop, you will

  • better understand what DEI is and why it is so important for organisations to manage DEI effectively
  • better understand the language (terminology) of DEI 
  • begin to better understand the complex reactions to DEI

This Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop will provide opportunities for you to practice applying the skills (during the session). In order to ensure that we are able to provide sufficient time for practicing and providing each other with feedback, this workshop can accommodate a maximum of 15 participants. If you are unable to sign up for the workshop because it is fully booked, please send us an email at [email protected] or [email protected] so that we can put you on the waiting list for the next workshop (date to be determined).

This workshop serves as a valuable stand-alone introduction to working with DEI. For those wanting a more in-depth training experience, it also serves as the springboard into our broader, comprehensive DEI training of trainers programme:

Please do let us know if you are interested in one or more of these other modules so that we can send you updates and invites for these workshops.

This introductory workshop (and the broader ToT programme) is primarily intended for facilitators, trainers and coaches who work in the South African context. However, the concepts are universal and can be applied to all other contexts. Therefore, we welcome facilitators, trainers and coaches from around the world.

Here is what some of our past participants are saying about this workshop:

"I was really inspired by this train the trainers workshop - I was really inspired by the other participants and the shared commitment to learn and grow as we strive to create a more just and equitable South Africa and world. I’m looking forward to future modules of this workshop series!"

"Thank you Zed and Sam for this very insightful and powerful session. Look forward to the next module, and to supporting each other to learn more, and to make a real difference."
