Willy provides customized, interactive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training that increases awareness, informs, develops 

empathy, and helps employees build healthy teams and provide excellent customer service.

 

These anti-bias trainings can be customized

to the industry, employee roles, customer base, work setting, and company culture.

They can address how to create an affirming workplace, and dial into specific learning objectives that arise from incidents and challenges.

 

The curriculum can be customized to address:

 

  • Managing bias in a diverse workplace

  • Terms, identities, concepts, and intersectional identities

  • How to uplift your team, whatever your role, through allyship and accountability

  • How to navigate interactions respectfully and avoid negatively impacting people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people

  • What microaggressions are; how to deal with experiencing them

  • The impact of being misgendered; tools for remembering names and pronouns; how to apologize when a mistake has been made

  • How to develop and implement a transition plan to support an employee's gender transition

  • How to provide restroom access so everyone can use the facilities safely and comfortably

  • Pervasive discrimination, violence, and trauma that impacts people who experience systemic oppression

  • Relevant legal issues in your jurisdiction

  • Best practices for creating affirming organizational systems

  • Affirming policies, procedures, and protocol

  • Action steps
