CPS HR has developed a comprehensive DEIBB learning and education platform. We provide a variety of customizable training options that cover a variety of DEIB topics. In addition, we offer a 7 module Cultural Intelligence (CQ) training series that can be customized to fit your specific organizational needs.
In the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) workshops, participants will learn how to successfully create “safe spaces” in which, the conversations of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, are encouraged to take place with the intent of creating connection, belonging, and safety for everyone. Participants will learn the critical distinctions between “acknowledgment” and “agreement” in creating this optimum work and learning environment. These sessions will highlight high-performing organizations that have successfully adopted cultural intelligence staff development tools to operationalize diversity and inclusion strategies.
Cultural intelligence or cultural quotient (CQ) is having the capacity to relate and work effectively with different groups of people and across cultures (including Big-C “Culture” and little-c “culture”). Cultural intelligence articulates core competencies and skill sets that allow organizations the ability to cultivate and develop effective DEIB tools for its team members and leaders. Cultural intelligence goes beyond cultural awareness and political correctness. This module will examine the various elements of cultural intelligence and how to operationalize it in an organization.
Understanding diversity, equity, and inclusion in thepost-2020 world requires a new language to effectively communicate through the lens of cultural intelligence. This language reflects a judgment-free perspective that serves to bring different groups of people together through a common understanding and appreciation of the lived experiences of others. This module will educate the participants on the common language of DEIB to create a common understanding and common connections among divergent groups of people within an organization.
All human beings operate with varying degrees of implicit bias. Implicit biases are unintended people’s preferences that could adversely impact the effective operations of any organization. This module will explore the various types of implicit bias, micro-behaviors, and the proper ways to address and resolve issues that arise from this mindset.
High-performing organizations are not only focusing on the diversity of their workforce but also on how that workforce reflects a culture of equity and inclusion. Inclusion addresses how well the organization shares power, access, and resources with all elements of the workforce, particularly those elements which represent marginalized and/or underrepresented groups of the organization. This module will discuss effective ways in which organizations may become more inclusive through operationalizing DEIB into every business unit of the organization.
When organizations commence the DEIB journey of transformation, there will be conflict in order to break through the barriers to creating an inclusive organization. This module supports people and organizations in managing expectations for success and provides tools and resources for navigating conflict within individuals, groups of people, and organizations.
It is essential to learn how to have hard conversations that address the current environment of social justice and racial equity. We will explore topics like cultural intelligence, acknowledgment vs. agreement, Black Lives Matter vs. All Lives Matter, how to be an ally, and the best way to address employees. This module will share practical and timely guidance on how to engage employees around the complex and passionate issues related to systemic racism, the need for transparency and accountability in police practices, and the need for civil discourse.
This module will bring together a panel of subject matter experts to share practical experiences about the journey of organizational transformation. The panel members will share successes, setbacks, and other experiences they’ve encountered on the DEIB journey. Participants will have an opportunity to connect with these experts to gain practical wisdom on the keys to implementing a successful DEIB program.
