Diversity & Inclusivity
Research shows diversity improves performance. Studies show that ethnically-diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform their peers financially and gender-diversity 15%*. Inclusive teams outperform their peers by 80% in team-based assessments**. But diversity and inclusivity are not just reached by hiring a diverse group of people. Your staff needs to feel respected, included, and motivated to contribute. If you can increase positive communication and cross-cultural understanding, you are actively promoting wellness, continuing education and a healthier culture for your organization.
If you think- “Yes I need to get to this, but how?” our new program, Not Suitable for Work can help you get this important initiative underway in your company. Let us be part of your tool box to create a respectful work environment, dismantle bias culture, and recognize harmful predispositions and stereotypes.
Catharsis Productions uses humor, interactive talk, and exercises to create an impactful and meaningful learning environment for all participants. NSFW utilizes research from psychology and adult learning theory mixed with real world discussion and examples of cultural differences happening around us. Participants will walk away with an understanding which:
Enables them to see their own biases and privileges

Identifies what bias statements are and how to respond them
Empowers everyone to be part of the solution in fostering a more respectful and productive working environment.
