Equity work seeks to address deep-rooted social issues within organizations and institutions that have gone long-unaddressed (if they have been acknowledged at all). As such, eliminating the disproportionality and disparity that is impacting equity-seeking groups within these organizations and institutions is a significant undertaking. While single-session trainings, lectures, or coachings can offer important knowledge and direction, it is difficult to fit the full breadth of the work required into one session.
For example, if the session only includes some members of staff and not others, developing organization-wide understanding will be a challenge. Similarly, if staff are only engaged on the subject of equity in one session, there are few, if any opportunities for further discussion, progress checks, or follow-ups. The risk becomes that any progress that is made may not be sustained because there is a lack of ongoing support for the work that is done in the initial session.
KOJO Institute develops and facilitates multi-session programs for organizations and institutions in both the private and public sector. These programs are customized according to the unique needs of each client. They can include any combination of formal classroom-style training, coaching for various departments or members of the organization, a series of trainings and critical conversations for staff, and focused workshops addressing particular issues.
Our programs are typically progressive and cumulative with phases designed to deepen understanding as they progress. Multi-session programs ensure that the changes implemented are nurtured and sustained through continuous support. They also allow for follow up on the progress of the organization as a whole, from entire departments to individual staff members, and opportunities for those individuals to concretize their knowledge, process the information, and practice what they learn.
