Open Enrollment Labs
WMFDP holds learning labs that are open for general enrollment several times a year. We call these our Open Enrollment labs. They’re ideal for curious individuals and smaller, intact work groups.
These intensives help organizations recognize where they are either lacking or ahead, enabling attendees to gather next steps for their diversity and inclusion (D&I) journeys. With the approach and content being similar to our customized D&I solutions, attendees report having undergone life-changing experiences that directly impact their organizations.
White Men as Allies Learning Lab
On Eliminating Racism, Sexism And Homophobia In Organizations
This innovative 3.5-day, white-male only Learning Lab shatters the myth that white men don’t have an important role to play in creating and sustaining inclusive work environments. The experience creates an environment where white men, often for the first time, can openly explore their questions, confusions, hopes and concerns related to “diversity issues” and build critical leadership skills and behaviors. This intensive learning process assists men in understanding not only the moral imperative but also the bottom-line value of an inclusive organizational culture.
