NCBI’s approach of combining emotional healing work with practical skill-training enables participants to learn quickly in a safe environment.
NCBI Welcoming Diversity
The NCBI Welcoming Diversity Workshop is a one-day program NCBI has implemented in hundreds of schools, corporations, governments, unions, religious institutions, and community organizations throughout the world.
It consists of a series of incremental, experiential activities that help participants celebrate their similarities and differences, recognize the misinformation they’ve been given about various groups, identify and heal from internalized oppression, claim pride in group identity, understand the personal impact of discrimination through the telling of stories, and learn hands-on-tools for dealing effectively with bigoted comments and behavior.
NCBI Controversial Issue Process
The NCBI Controversial Issue Process trains leaders to deal constructively with tough conflicts, enabling them to move disputing parties toward future cooperation. NCBI has successfully used this process with members of Congress when a controversial bill was pending, with Black and Jewish students at a major state university during a conflict, with the public in San Diego during a forum on a state ballot initiative, and more.
The process provides a structured methodology that allows people on both sides of an entrenched issue to express their concerns, listen attentively to the other side, and then to reframe the issue in a way that respectfully takes into account the concerns of both sides, no matter how heated, controversial, or culturally embedded the issue.
