We recognize that many of you may be experiencing a range of emotions and business impact due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), so we’re checking in. . . Checking in to affirm that your feelings matter. Checking in to remind you that we’re thinking of you, your family, your teams, your world. 
 

We want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation closely and working to ensure we meet the needs of our clients, as well as the safety of our facilitators and employees. We are still supporting clients virtually during this time, and we hope that our services—including our virtual offerings, blog, podcast, and online community—can be a source of support, inspiration, and solutions for you. While we will miss seeing you in sessions and at events, please join us on social media to stay updated and connected. You are all part of The Winters Group family, so just know that no matter what, we’re in this together, and we will stay together.

While we certainly recognize the urgency in reprioritizing business needs to manage the impact of the coronavirus, we know that cultural competence and being able to leverage an equity and inclusion lens are so important to our effectiveness during this time. We have a range of virtual resources available for you and your organization to consider and leverage to keep your work and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion top of mind. Below you will find a list of some of our virtual offerings during this time.

Our Virtual Learning Labs (VLLs) are a remote alternative to our in-class learning experiences. VLLs are 60 – 90-minute live, facilitated sessions that allow learners to participate from any device. Our learning platform utilizes interactive technology to engage participants in polling, chat discussion, and skill-building, on topics that range from foundational to advanced. Participants leave each session with skills that can be applied immediately.

 

We are offering all of our learning and education offerings virtually, including keynotes. We deliver interactive and thought-provoking sessions for leaders, individual contributors, and DEI practitioners. Some of our most sought after topics include: Engaging in Bold, Inclusive Conversations®, Inclusion Starts with “I” and Happens with “Us,” Leading Inclusively—Actualized, and Transforming Your Culture with Inclusion.

 

The Winters Group’s Leading Inclusively Coaching™ program provides ongoing support to process, internalize, and apply the strategies and knowledge received following completion of the IDI® and any educational experiences. Coaching enables clients to turn lessons into strategic plans with actionable goals to make lasting and meaningful change in their workplace behavior.

We’ve developed a series of LinkedIn Learning Courses that can be used to complement and scale your organization’s diversity and inclusion education. Mary-Frances guides you through two separate courses — Skills for Inclusive Conversations and Cultivating Cultural Competence and Inclusion.
