IISC has been working diligently to prepare to bring our most popular and sought after workshops to the virtual world. We prioritized our racial justice offerings and were pleased to launch our first Advancing Racial Justice in Organizations Online Series (ARJ Online) in September. Next up is Fundamentals of Facilitation for Racial Justice Work (FFRJW). And directly following the launch of FFRJW will be our flagship workshop, Facilitative Leadership for Social Change (FL4SC) delivered virtually with an enhanced emphasis on our commitment to attending to issues of power, equity, and inclusion.

Please note that the first public workshop offerings of FFRJW and FL4SC that are launching in early 2021 will prioritize those who missed out when workshops were cancelled in the Spring…but we are working hard to schedule additional offerings of these two as well as ARJ Online. We will announce new dates as soon as we can while continuing to seek a balance between our commitment to this work and to you with the health and safety of our staff.

We are not yet making plans to start offering in-person trainings again, but will do so once conditions are clearly and reliably safe enough.. because we have very much missed being in the room with you all! 

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.
