This moment is opportune for AI principles and tools to support the work on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues on the rise with calls to action such as #BlackLivesMatters, #MeToo, and #RefugeesWelcome. This course has been designed to support you through collaborative inquiry into what’s working and what’s possible to create the change we want to see in our workplaces, communities, and family systems.
This course is designed for all Appreciative Inquiry skill levels, whether you are new to AI or you’re an AI expert and yearning to incorporate DEI into your living AI practice. As BIPOC women facilitators, AI has been central to our resilience in social change work and strengthened our call-in culture work in organisations.
What might be possible if a community of individuals were fully engaged and using their strengths to collectively achieve shared visions?

As a fellow trainer, I just want to thank you for all the careful design you put into the DEI workshop. You are masters in welcoming the whole self into the learning adventure.
This is a fantastic course with useful tools, practices and resources to engage with and use both professionally and personally. Tanya and Marlene are seasoned facilitators who held the space with great wisdom. As a DE&I Facilitator, it’s been a necessary shift from looking at problems and deficiencies and instead focusing on strengths and successes. I highly recommend this course for any body who is looking to grow their toolbox, experience a positive shift in mindset and learn about positive questioning which helps organisations and people to move in a positive direction.
