Racial Justice Training

In this day and age, we can’t afford to ignore the impact racism has had on our country and in our churches. Each of us needs to do our own work. In this program, each participant will take the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), which is the premier assessment of cross-cultural acumen, have a 1:1 debrief with a LeaderWise psychologist, and then participate in a ½ day workshop for the group led by 2.

LeaderWise staff members who are certified to administer and teach the IDI. During this Zoom workshop, participants will learn more deeply about cross-cultural competence; constructions in in diversity, equity, and inclusion; reflect on their own opportunities for increasing competence; and begin to create their own development plan for increasing their competence.

Costs:  The costs for the workshop are fully covered by participating presbyteries and the Synod, but each Intercultural Development Inventory has a cost per person for the individualized debrief. The cost for a one-half hour debrief is $150; please check with your presbytery staff to see how they might be subsidizing that cost.  An additional half hour debrief, for a total of 1 hour, costs an additional $70.  The Synod will subsidize this additional cost for the first 60 people who sign up for this seminar.
