The foundational Racial Literacy training prepares participants (students, educators, leaders, practitioners, etc) to become better observers and change agents of their own racially insecure and stress-burdened thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. We supportively provide feedback on how to use racial literacy (including knowledge, skills and tools), while participants are simultaneously using mindfulness and stress management to lighten the burden that racial politics brings.
The course will help participants competently address diversity related conflicts by establishing environments of mutual respect and trust, boosting ethical and thoughtful decision-making, and increasing worker performance and productivity. We expect participants to become racially assertive enough to ethically speak and act using their occupational expertise during face-to-face racial encounters (FTF) without overreacting or under-reacting.
Lion’s Story consults with organizations and individuals who have participated in our training (or are planning to do so) and are committed to involving other stakeholders. With dedicated time and resources, we can help you build skills and reshape the racial climate within your organization. We aim to support that evolution in whatever way possible - whether it be open ears, creative ideas, strategic planning support, on-site observations, etc.
In addition to consulting, Lion’s Story conducts assessments for organizations to measure racial literacy. Requests for assessments are customized to the specific needs of the environment and the client. To learn more about assessments, please submit an inquiry using the contact form.
