Workplace Programs

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.

The 8:46 Series:

From Diversity and Inclusion to Racial Equity

In August 2020, NCCJ partnered with the YMCA of Greensboro to launch a new community initiative called The 8:46 Series to educate and equip the community with a foundational understanding of the issue of systemic racism. The first phase of this initiative reached more than 900 community and business leaders. (Click here to learn more.)

In January 2021, we launched the second phase – a new, free webinar series throughout 2021 for those who wish to cultivate a more racially inclusive environment at their workplaces. The first offering in this second phase is this 90-minute panel discussion (recorded and available for you to watch, at left) that took place on January 12, 2021. It explores diverse racial equity journeys, personal growth strategies, vulnerabilities and ways to work together. By starting with this understanding, we can unlock transformative change.
