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.

“Very helpful to use in my classroom.”
“I enjoyed Sharon’s enthusiasm, eagerness to connect with her audience and her down to earth personality that really brought forth new tactics in teaching, but also interesting insights to people skills in all! I will implement much of her lesson into my classroom as well as my home and personal life.”

“I love love loved the tidbits of the history of teaching you included…. I would love to dig deeper into how … education has changed and [talk about how to] “get back to basics.”

What did you like best about this seminar? She had an emphasis on Christ centered education. (This was in a church affiliated preschool.)

What did you like best?

  • Where to find books [relating to] morals.
  • Plenty of time for discussion was given.
  • Explanation of the class which I could understand well.
  • Learning how to incorporate values into our planning.

What I like to hear most, and often do: “We want to have you back. When can you come? “
