Keynote & Workshop Topics

Each workshop covers a fundamental aspect of doing the critical work of an ally by challenging participants to be transparent; deeply listen to stories different than their own; and co-create action plans that are reflective of the changes that are desired within their organization. Each session can be delivered in-person or virtually as a keynote or a multi-day workshop.
