Culture MattersValuing your people, and ensuring that your workforce is representative of the markets in which you operate, creating authentic engagement with diverse and underrepresented groups, and understanding the unique challenges they face, not only strengthens your organizational culture, but your bottom line!
Collectivity is a group of individuals bringing diverse experiences and perspectives together, offering diversity and inclusion training regarding the gender and sexually diverse (GSD) community. We specialize in the service sector; however, are also happy to discuss training opportunities for other individuals and organizations who are interested in developing a better understanding of both the strategic and ethical benefits of diversity and inclusion.
Our training workshops are tailored to meet the needs and timelines of each client, and are experiential in design. We are focused on building authentic, open, safe and creative spaces to support and enhance your organizational culture, while providing the skills necessary to better support the communities in which you operate.
"DIVERSITY is being asked to the party. INCLUSION is being asked to dance."Vernã Myers
The lunch and learn was fantastic. Jason went through Gender and Sexually Diverse (GSD) Training. We did some activities to learn more about GSD terminology such as the differences and definitions of being trans vs. transgender vs. cisgender. The conversations were very intimate due to the small group but it allowed us to have easy and comfortable candid conversations.Stephanie Chung
