How We Can Help
- Do you have trouble recruiting or retaining underrepresented groups?
- Is it difficult to bring diverse parties together to solve problems?
- Do discussions of race, gender, or sexual orientation make some people go quiet and confuse or irritate others?
- Is your diversity committee experiencing in-fighting or lack of direction?
- Do camps or cliques keep the group from working together as a whole?
- Is gossip a key mode of information-sharing?
- Do you struggle to attract new leadership?
- Would you like more skills to effectively interrupt inappropriate comments or jokes?
- Is your organization ready to go beyond “diversity awareness”?
Luna Jiménez Seminars & Associates was founded to provide insight and guidance to institutions, organizations, and individuals grappling with change and committed to inclusion. We are in the service of achieving cultural competency and equality of opportunity in our increasingly multicultural world.
- Our programs go beyond awareness. We use frameworks and tools to understand the breadth and depth of diversity to become truly inclusive in our practices. We teach specific interpersonal and leadership skills needed to thrive in doing global work.
- LJS’ approach is inclusive and non-confrontational. We focus on increasing understanding and developing skills for all participants.
- Diversity starts with you—meaning diversity is not about “them.” Each of us is on a journey to come to terms with our own experiences, attitudes, and expectations about others.
- No one is to blame for current inequities, yet we are all responsible for removing them. Fault is not the same as accountability. We have all been socialized with misinformation; all of us have been both perpetrator and victim of prejudice and discrimination.
- Application is the key to learning. We share skills you can use immediately, helping you make the connection to your unique work environment. We ensure every intervention has an element of application and planning for next steps.
- Our learning environment is magical. The unparalleled design experience of our team is evident in the learning climate we create. You will experience a place that is safe, supportive, creative, open and full of possibilities.
