Some feedback from our students

We are dedicated to empowering you with knowledge, skills, and confidence to provide appropriate responses to DEI Conflict at Work.

“Very Insightful”

This course provided some very insightful information that I would have missed otherwise. It's funny how we can think we are addressing a situation but can make things worse by our response. 
Joyce did a good job of communicating and making it more obvious how we can change our thoughts about the DEI issues at work.
J.D Leader

“I learned a lot”

I was afraid that this course would be negative and in your face. I was surprised how Joyce handles these very important and painful issues in a way that sheds light, create insight and enable dialogue. It was well structured and the content was interesting and relevant. The group discussions were well structured and guided so we came away with more insight and knowledge.

“Conflict is not scary”

Joyce is clearly highly experienced and knowledgeable on this topic and as a result was able to make it a difficult topic fun and informative.
She clearly articulated the importance of the subject matter, and take the time to ensure you understand the information in a way that is easy to grasp.
The cases studies were very relevant and provided some sound learning I will take with me through my career.

“The courses are designed to provide you with the skills necessary to recognize DEI conflicts sooner and equip you with the skills to intervene. They will provide you with an in-depth look at the latest research and will help you to formulate your own unique path to successful DEI integration.”
Joyce Odidison

Why this is important

"Whether it's a physical disability, mental health accommodation, gender issue, or a person's ancestry, diversity conflicts are on the rise".
Often, our very diversity is the cause of conflicts in the workplace. When we are in conflict our diversity becomes magnified, as we notice the things that make us view the situation differently.
