Beyond Diversity 101

Diversity training has traditionally been based in models driven by guilt and blame. We believe that if the goal is to become a more whole society, such trainings are highly ineffective. We need to move beyond the vicious cycles that are embedded in these old “Diversity 101” models. We can, in fact, abolish systematic discrimination within and without. It requires recognizing, taking responsibility, shifting mindsets while continually building and utilizing effective skills. Beyond Diversity 101 is for all who choose to transform systems of separation and power-over. It is for those who want to work toward wholeness — within and without.

Children's Creative Response to Conflict

This program was established in 1972 by the New York Quaker Project on Community Conflict and is now incorporated as Creative Response to Conflict. As a result of years of nonviolence training, the staff realized that the seeds of violence are often planted in children at an early age. They began adapting, for young children's skills, the methods used with adults, starting with weekly workshops in New York City public schools. Now, tens of thousands of CCRC workshops have been conducted in the New York area, North America, Europe, Asia, Central and South America.
