Diversity and Inclusion
You want your employees and co-workers to be included, but you are unsure how to start the conversation. That's where we come in! Our Founder, Matthew French's presentation and facilitation style has been refined over 10 years. His experiences in fostering inclusive conversations in college classrooms, boardrooms and virtual rooms makes his style one of kind. Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessible centered conversations can be difficult "heavy" topics. With Matthew helping to lead the conversation, he turns the experience into an engaging conversation with interweaved education, queer theory, history, work place ally ship and light hearted humor. This approach allows for more open dialogue, questions and understanding. While many topics focus on LGBTQ+ identities, the intersectionality of many identities are integrated to offer a larger picture of diversity and inclusion.
