Organizational Development Workshops

Workshop: Where Diversity and Inclusion Meet Implicit Bias

What do you think when you hear the term “diversity”?  Are diversity and inclusion the same?  Have you ever wondered why our thoughts sometimes don't match our actions? Come learn more about implicit bias and how it affects our daily interactions and decision-making, such as in the media, criminal justice, and hiring. We will also discuss microaggressions, microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, video clips, and interactive exercises, workshop attendees will leave with a better understanding and awareness of diversity, inclusion, and implicit bias.

Workshop Presenter: Cheri C. Wilson, MA, MHS, CPHQ

Workshop: Truing Up Your Work with Youth

This workshop is for participants to ground their practice as a youth worker/supervisor of young staff/trusted adult role model in self-determined values and personal/professional priorities. Strengthening the fulcrum of your leadership philosophy will help you facilitate the development of your youth while simultaneously navigating the demands of your program and/or business model. 

Participants will “build a wheel” to structure their self-assessment, plan out action steps, and will partner up for mutual accountability.  This session is for anyone who regularly interacts with youth in an educational, recreational, or employment context. 

This workshop is adaptive for a wide range of experience levels: those still developing their ethos for youth work or for seasoned senior management looking to reconnect with their personal service philosophy. 

Workshop Presenter: Kristina Sepulveda, Bike NYC
