While partaking in a national service program, AmeriCorpsVISTA, that builds capacities in nonprofit and human service organizations, I, along with a cohort of service members, developed a set of DE&I programs aimed at smaller to midsized organizations. Based on the principals of human-centered design, this project builds and maintains professional and personal relationships between employees in service and worksites.
Aside from extensive training through AmeriCorpsVISTA and my host site, this was the first attempt at understanding and expanding DE&I training. We wanted to create the space to put into motion DE&I and sensitivity training with employee-led programs that lead to strong relationships, an equitable ‘office’ culture, and a healthy environment for everyone.
This project was completed pre-CoVID19. August 2019.
