Institute for Social Emotional Education

Tired of paying for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training that is NOT giving you the results you hoped for?

If you are truly tired of conducting business from a reactionary position in which you are constantly scared of being sued or “cancelled” by your customers, clients and other stakeholders, then it is time to engage with DEI from an innovative, and roots-based perspective.

 

GCSCORED's training is an Immersion Experience. You will leave Transformed.

Our foundational premise is that DEI is a three-fruit blend and the five social-emotional competencies are the entangled roots. In order to get the fruits/results (i.e., a work environment where diversity, equity and inclusion are bountiful) that you are expecting when you engage in our DEI Immersion Experience, you must dig down deep to the root level of your employees.

Who should complete this short questionnaire?

Whomever your organization has designated to take the lead in regards to cultivating a culture and climate of

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. A person or team of persons who have their finger on the pulse of the organizational culture and climate and are in positions to make decisions.

A Word of Caution:

This DEI Immersion Experience is not for the faint of heart! If you are seeking a quick fix, then this is NOT going to work for you. If you are genuinely seeking long-lasting and authentic change for you and your employees, then continue to the screening tool.

This short questionnaire serves as a screening tool for you in determining the DEI temperature of your organization and the need for deep-rooted, long-lasting change. This short questionnaire is your first step to cultivating a healthy DEI culture and climate in your organization change.

DIGGING DEEPER INTO DEI

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion(DEI) are fruits, and organizations big and small are focusing on the fruits and not the roots.

MINDSET ABOUT DEI

  • Are you one of those persons who knows that  in order to stop a tree from bearing fruits, whether good or bad tasting, picking the fruits and throwing them away, or even repurposing them, WILL NOT stop the tree from bearing fruits?
  • Do you belong to an organization that is focused on fruit picking?
  • How is that working out for you and your organization in real time?
Story of a CEO in search of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training

“Wow! Yes! Winter’s over…. The Sun emerges from the darkness that fights to let it breakthrough. I lay in bed not wanting to face the day. I’m so tired of it all. The political commentary, the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to be empathetic with others while few are reciprocating. I turn over on my side, look at my wife who’s still asleep. The clock says 5:30 AM. What am I going to do because I’m overwhelmed by the ever changing and increasing demands of life; of meeting the needs of others for me to be the guy who understands all things black, multicultural, and the biases of the power I wield. It seems as if all the issues of life, all the issues of living in this space are threatening to wipe me off the face of this earth. I sigh and reach for a book filled with wisdom and I read ….

 

It’s now 7:00 AM and I begrudgingly opened my email. Almost 1 in 5 emails I receive are asking, offering, suggesting and marketing the need for a DEI policy, training or insights into DEI. It prompted me to find out what this thing is, what is this DEI that I need for me and my organization?”

Dr. Larrier uses her 30 plus years of practice, passion, innovation, evaluation, and research in the fields of mental health, counseling, social work, school counseling, education, and research to transform individuals, institutions and communities. Partnership and collaboration are fundamental to her success as an advocate for children, youth, adults, families, institutions, organizations and systems, both locally and globally. Emerging from her diverse professional experiences is her maxim: “Every Piece Matters.” At the heart of this maxim, lies the lifeblood that drives her relationship capacity-building activities, and her long-standing advocacy work with those described as marginalized,  invisible and voiceless.
