Ferguson Says Diversity Training Still Very Relevant

November 25, 2014 at 2:53 pm 3 comments

I started doing “diversity training” back in the 1990s. I was wondering if it were really a “dead horse.”  Recent seminar feedback (diversity doesn’t apply here) and recent news (Ferguson. MO) suggest that it is still very relevant today. Please keep me in mind as your diversity trainer. Unlike most, I have a Master’s in Sociology and real experience dealing across barriers in a successful manner.  Yes, even if you are “just training in early childhood.”  Yes, especially if you are training any sort of teacher, you need someone with broad background, practical yes, but also scientific.  Not just someone pushing the latest trend. I have some thought-through and tested ideas — ideas that seem to be entirely new to most. Don’t be hemmed in by looking just where your feet are.  Look around to see where you might go.  Then find someone who knows the landscape, and follow her.  Call me today to book me for any training having to do with diversity or conflict reduction. 512/249-7629.

    Yes, and NOT the kind of “multi-cultural training” that increases resentment, rancor, and fuels violence.

    Yes, we need to go back to original values of understanding, kindness and self-abnegation — rather than the current “values” of “self-esteem” (meaning overweening pride at the expense of others) and “awareness” meaning mobilization for dissension and clamour. Advocacy for another is one thing, but when it becomes an open invitation for looting and violence, it is time to re-think. Love must be wise to be effective.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas

“Sharon has strong abilities in critical thinking. She also has excellent instincts in grasping issues before all the information has been revealed. There have been some occasions where I assumed what she was saying could not possibly be accurate, but in the end she was proved right when the facts were revealed. I trust (or at least pay serious attention) to her opinions.” Walter Lee, former Engineer, Retired Minister PC(USA), QVR Board Member

 

“Speaker was at ease and able to relate to all participants. All was very good! ” MNKA member

“You kept everything light and moving along. It was great.” MNKA member

“Thanks so much for doing this topic! I’ve been saying this for a long time and no one seems to be hearing me. You have confirmed that I’m not losing my mind. THANK YOU!” MNKA Member

“We sincerely appreciate the time and effort you put into your presentation. Your presentation was a real blessing to the participants, judging from their evaluations. –Terri Sloan, Weekday Ministries Conference

And what I like to hear most, I usually do: “We want to have you back. When can you come? “
