Our consultancy service is led by our Executive Director Shernett Martin, along with experts and facilitators. Our Training seminar is called “UBUNTU” which is taken from a South African proverb which, when translated means “I am because of you, and because of you, I am.” In general terms, it means that our society benefits when we all benefit. Our society thrives when we all thrive.
We guide organizations and workplaces toward the concept of the “whole” rather than the “singular.” The training is informative and transformative.
We offer seminars, workshops, training, resources, tool-kits and offer retainer services. Contact us to learn more.
As a full-service organization, we enjoy an excellent track record with proven results. We have successfully created and facilitated dozens of training and workshops to corporations and private individuals across the country. We have the flexibility to handle a range of projects, with professionalism and effectiveness. We have worked with small organizations up to large corporations with 1500+ employees.
- We will meet with your staff or organizational team to craft a workshop for your organization
- We will create a unique learning experience in anti-racism work and practice
- We will continue providing support and leadership post-workshop
Note: Seminars include our team of experts that can be offered using a lecture style, or using break-out rooms and interactive participation. Each seminar is priced individually with the comprehensive package priced as a module. Seminars are virtual or in-person following health guidelines of social distancing and masks with no maximum number of participants or clients registered.
We look forward to working with you.
