We offer many training and development events year-round. The list below outlines programs that manage and guide these events. To view upcoming events, visit our event calendar.
Diversity Training and Human Rights Leadership Development
HREI, along with our partners in education, offer training on diversity and human rights leadership development. These training curriculum are tailored toward people in the fields of education and higher education. More opportunities will be coming throughout the year, but for a look at what we have offered in the past you can view our previous class below.
HREI's Rethinking Racism
Rethinking Racism is an HREI program focused on conversation about race. Conversations about race can be difficult, challenging, and uncomfortable. This opportunity is a two-part experiential learning series to deepen our understanding of how race, power, white privilege, white supremacy, and racism influence our policies, perspectives, and institutions. We will explore tools, resources, and practices to identify equity dilemmas, to facilitate and deepen equity conversations, and to build capacity to strengthen relationships with those involved in the dialogue.
While our curriculum is tailored for faculty, administrators, and staff in public education with the aim to strengthen educational outcomes of historically underserved students, this workshop is relevant to businesses, non-profits, private schools, and our larger community.

North Idaho College Diversity
North Idaho College’s Diversity Council supports the college’s mission and dedication to the core value of diversity by providing resources, programming, and dialogue that help build cultural competence, raise global awareness, and support social justice and ethical responsibility. As such, the council supports local and national gatherings that give voice to the systemic and structural issues embedded in societal inequities, from #BlackLivesMatters to #WaterForLife. It admonishes acts of racism, structural inequality, and discrimination.
