Break through to greater inclusion and success in your workplace
NCCJ’s workplace and educator programs equip program participants with the knowledge and tools they need to create more inclusive spaces. Through a combination of informational modules, experiential activities, and facilitated dialogue and action planning, we guide participants through an introspective process focused on a variety of topics. Participants examine how their unconscious biases, personal experiences and identity shape their perspective of the world, themselves and others — and how they impact their personal and professional decision-making. At the conclusion, they’ve gained strategies for greater inclusion in their personal and professional lives.
It will take a sustained, collective effort across all sectors of our society to create real change.
In the summer of 2020, NCCJ partnered with the YMCA of Greensboro to launch The 8:46 Series*. In its first phase, this free webinar program series equipped more than 900 community and business leaders with a foundational understanding of the issue of systemic racism.

In 2021, The 8:46 Series returns with additional topics to educate our community, focused on advancing equity and inclusion within our workplaces. Click here for details and registration information for upcoming programs in the series.

*Note: In 2020, we named The 8:46 Series for the eight minutes and forty-six second period when the officer’s knee was on George Floyd’s neck. As we have since learned, the officer’s knee was in fact pressed against Floyd’s neck for over 9 minutes.
