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.
In past years, we have offered two different training opportunities. One is a seven-part series of justice focused events hosted by Gonzaga University throughout the school year. These events are sponsored by Gonzaga Departments and students as part of Communities for Justice. These events are meant to educate students for lives of leadership and service to the common good.

Our second opportunity is called, Rethinking Racism. Engaging in 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.
