What to expect

The commitment is to attend seven days (3+2+2) in-person, be an engaged participant, complete assignments in between sessions, practice skills, and apply the learnings to create change. At the end of the month, participants will be invited to collaborate on projects to apply what they’ve learned.  In tandem, individual and group coaching will be offered for (6) months to help support the learning to “stick.”  Each session builds on the previous one. To support everybody to maximize their investment, there will be no “screens” (electronic devices) allowed while we’re immersed. As a learner, you’ll be challenged and supported to fully engage with what you know, how you feel, and what you believe.

Who should attend

Diversity Immersion is appropriate for leaders and change agents who have a deep commitment to change, grow, and make a difference.  Our focus is leaders who are aware a problem exists and are motivated to solve it, and who:

  • Understand that transforming themselves is essential to effectively lead culture change.
  • Are open to exploring the emotions that naturally arise when we commit to this journey.
  • Have a position of influence to engage others in this work.
  • Will commit to a practice of reflective action and inclusion.

We would like a cohort of participants from a cross-section of our economic ecosystem. Examples: technology, health care, philanthropy, human resources, policy advisors, bankers, investors, education, small business, start-ups, established firms, police, students, lawyers, consultants, retail, manufacturing, clergy, etc.  


diversity i tripleExperiential learning is the foundation for the design. Key elements are the importance of inquiry, reflection, and experimenting with new behaviors. We continually thread attending to our inner work while we do our outer work - both being and doing.  Participants will receive a personal journal and asked to use it throughout.  We’ll work individually, in small groups, and in the large group.  There will be content inputs in tandem with a variety of activities, exercises, and a simulation.  In between the in-person face-to-face sessions, participants will have interim learning (IL) assignments to complete and bring to the following session.  We’ll learn with and from each other in a spirit of collaborative learning.
