Learning & Development
Why True Colors?
True Colors training sessions are built for more than HR compliance. We are also not designed to blame and shame, rather to help you learn and grow in a structured setting.
Want to understand why Critical Race Theory is a hot topic? Want to understand how DEI will help you have strong ESG scores so that you are attractive to investors and meeting the needs of your stakeholders without merely checking boxes? Are you a person with marginalized identities wanting to know more about self-advocacy so that you can navigate the nuances in your workplace?
Learning experiences at True Colors Consulting are grounded in research-based concepts that include Business Psychology, Learning Theory, and DEI Principles and Concepts all with a Global Outlook in mind to deliver a high-touch, holistic experience for all participants that move your team or organization beyond compliance.
Let's Take a Journey!
Learning Journeys are 4-part training packages designed with a scope and sequence that continually build as scaffolding for deepening understanding of DEI concepts. Though anyone can participate in each learning journey, curriculum is developed with specific audiences in mind. It is also possible to build your own custom journey to meet your organization's needs.
This series of workshops is designed for executives and other decision-makers leading their organization from the upper-most tiers. Attendees will experience an extended version of DEI Fundamentals, which focuses on the needs of executives and other key decision makers and addresses DEI issues around Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance Investing (ESG) concerns and other important organizational initiatives. This journey for executive leaders also includes workshops that address Equitable Employment Practices and Implementing Sustainable DEI Programs.
The Leadership Learning Journey begins with DEI Fundamentals, to set the foundation for the other workshops in this series. Building on the fundamentals, participants will discuss and explore best practices for Inclusive Leadership and Inclusive Communication while working on building and Fostering a Culture of Belonging within their teams and organization.
Identity & Advocacy
This learning journey is designed to meet the needs of all roles within an organization from individual contributors and stakeholders at any level to people managers and executives. Beginning with the foundational concepts introduced in the DEI Fundamentals workshop, participants will continue on the learning journey to Explore Identity and Deconstructing Race and Racism, an aspect of identity that has been the center of lived experiences for centuries. Participants will also learn about being an impactful and effective ally with Advocacy in Action.
Custom Learning Journey
As with all learning journeys from True Colors Consulting, custom journeys for new clients will begin with DEI Foundations or Extended DEI Foundations. The rest of your journey will be custom designed to meet your needs by incorporating a minimum of two additional workshops from other journeys or from the selection of our add-on options. Contact us to learn more.
At True Colors Consulting, we understand that one size does not fit all, which is why we work with you to ensure that your chosen journey meets your organization or team where they are to help you move along your DEI continuum of learning. This may mean additional customization to ensure the most optimal learning experience.
Each workshop can also be delivered as a webinars for groups with more than 30 attendees. Please note that webinars contain the same learning content as workshops, but there are some limitations.
While webinars will have some engagement between the facilitator and the audience (such as participation in polls and other activities) there is not the same level of interactivity due to the format.
Not with a team? No problem! True Colors offers DEI Fundamentals periodically throughout the year for individual participation. Contact us for details!
We understand that it isn't always possible to schedule a session that works for every attendee's availability. We can record webinars which can be viewed by your attendees for up to 60 days. Due to the nature of workshop environments where sensitive stories may be shared, we do not offer recordings of workshops.
If you need a more bespoke training experience, we can custom design your workshop or webinar in your organization's brand.
It is our aim to move you beyond compliance, so it is important to us that growth and development of one's DEI journey is holistic. A full journey is recommended to get the most of your experience. If you are not ready for a full journey yet, DEI Fundamentals is available as a standalone workshop to get you started. Once your group has had DEI Fundamentals, other training sessions can be ordered individually, or you can design a custom journey as needed.
