IISC has worked diligently to prepare to bring our most popular and sought after workshops to the virtual world. And now that we have, demand is outpacing supply. We appreciate your interest and your patience as we seek to extend more of these learning opportunities. In the first six months of 2021, we hosted nine online public workshops and it would not have been possible without our incredible trainers, staff, and workshop participants. In the month of July, the trainings team took the time to rest, to build our team’s capacity, and to learn from the past ten months of training on Zoom. We hired and on-boarded a training assistant in August, and we are excited to launch more workshops this fall. 

At this time, we are still exclusively scheduling online workshops. A schedule of workshops to be offered in 2022 is coming soon. The current schedule is as follows:

Fundamentals of Facilitation for Racial Justice Work – Enrollment for the next series (Tuesdays, 11/16-12/14) is now full and a waitlist has been created.

Facilitative Leadership for Social Change – Enrollment for the next series (Wednesdays, 10/27-12/15) is now full and a waitlist has been created. 

Advancing Racial Justice in Organizations: An Online Series – We tentatively anticipate that applications will open in October 2021 for a series beginning in January 2022. 

All three of these workshops are available for delivery to groups within your organization or network. More information is available here.

We are not yet making plans to start offering in-person trainings again, and since it may still be a while before conditions are clearly and reliably safe enough, we are delighted to be able to offer these highly impactful capacity building and learning experiences to you in this new way. We look forward to seeing you online!

As always, we will post updates here as they become available, and we will share any training announcements via our mailing list. In the meantime, please take good care of yourself and your loved ones. Stay safe, everyone.





Advancing Racial Justice: An Online Learning Series for 2021

Advancing Racial Justice in Organizations (ARJ) is a capacity-building offering designed for multiracial teams of three to four people who want to develop plans for advancing and operationalizing racial justice and racial equity within their organizations or networks. The ideal team will include members of a new or ongoing Race, Equity, and Inclusion Team. Your team will be part of a cohort, learning alongside other teams about resources to design an organizational change process that includes different kinds of learning and planning activities to further racial equity in your work and internally in your organization or network.
