We create and provide experiential education for law enforcement, lawyers, other criminal justice stakeholders and civic leaders to promote respect, dignity, safety and fairness.
Procedural Justice for Courts and Civic Leaders
Procedural justice is concept vital for the courts, civic leaders, and others interested in public engagement, citizen compliance, and community trust. The four tenets of procedural justice, including promoting neutrality by reducing the impact of implicit bias, are discussed. This workshop also teaches strategies to implement this concept.
We also provide the following trainings: Leadership; Procedural Justice; Working with Diverse Communities: Immigrants, LGBT and Youth; and Mindfulness. All of our educational experiences are tailored to the needs of our clients, are based on scientific research and implement the best practices for adult learning.
Implicit Bias for Law Enforcement
The training will answer these critical questions: What is implicit bias? How do these biases affect police? What are the proven strategies for reducing bias in law enforcement? The course uses video, music and interactive exercises for participants to discover their own biases and to create strategies for de-biasing.
Implicit Bias for Attorneys
We provide two distinct trainings: one for attorneys and one specialized for criminal justice attorneys. Both experiences provide details about how implicit bias impacts attorneys in particular, and focuses on specific techniques for reducing the impact of bias in our work. For criminal attorneys, the training pays special attention to addressing bias in client relationships and in jury trials.
Leadership for Inclusion
Leaders and rising leaders will participate in a half-day session about increasing fairness and equity in their offices and practices. The participants will learn the four pillars of equitable leadership: creating a vision, creating community, communicating, and leading with integrity. All of the topics will be taught through interactive exercises that engage the participants and provide skills for implementing the concepts in the workplace.
Aside from providing training and creating workshops, we offer consulting to municipalities or organizations. Consultation can include topics such as leadership, diversity, and inclusion. We have conducted personnel diversity audits, developed diversity programs, and prepared inclusion strategies tailored to our clients' specific goals and needs.
