Culture & Communication Workshop: October 2021

Additional participant comments:


"This was incredibly supportive and filled with so many resources and opportunities to learn. Fantastic team..."

"This has been a safe, supportive and meaningful workshop. I feel like I can walk away with concrete next steps to create a more culturally responsive classroom. I highly recommend it to anyone and feel it should be a mandatory training for educators."


"A most informative, easy to navigate, pleasant experience. When compared to other workshops with a similar theme, I could give this 10/10 except I don't give out 'A's. Loved it."

"Thank you ALL so much! I can't wait for the January workshop! This was such a positive experience!!"

​​UnityWorks was pleased to prepare this presentation on Racism and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) for "Risk to Resiliency" - a community-based organization. Topics included:


•  What is race and how many races are there?
•  How do we learn racial prejudice?
•  Racism in our classrooms and communities

•  Microaggressions and color blindness

•  The school-to-prison pipeline

•  Causes and consequences of racial trauma
•  Ways to promote resilience and healing

"These sessions (September and October) have been so wonderful.  They have felt so warm and safe and heartfelt. Above all, I feel like I learned leaps and bounds more than I have in the past and I feel prepared to be a more culturally responsive teacher. Thank you for sharing this experience with me!"

Race, Implicit Bias and Childhood Trauma: August 2021

“UnityWorks has been conducting online trainings with KSD. I have participated in two of their workshops and I cannot recommend them enough. Of any trainings related to diversity, culture, inclusion, race, etc. - their classes are exceptional. They work very hard to create a safe space where participants can have difficult discussions that don't feel judgmental or preachy. Much of their approach seems to be an open dialog that invites self-reflection and a willingness to make small impactful changes.”
