Why this? Why now?
Translating diversity, equity, and inclusion knowledge into action can be challenging. Even with good intentions, navigating conflicts can be tough. Without effective conversation skills, tension rises, productivity drops, and burnout grows. In Engaging the Tension of Diversity, our intensive format, guided by therapists, delves into the emotions behind tension and offers experiences for teams to navigate challenging discussions together.

What is Artesian Collaborative’s approach to this issue?
If we address DEI issues through a relational lens with a focus on empathy, we can create space to have tense dialogue safely. All of our trainings are led by professionals with expertise in therapeutic techniques that can help teams manage conflict as it’s happening. As leaders, it often feels easiest to avoid conflict around diversity. We will help you practice skills to navigate that conflict and use it for good.
