This one-hour “appetizer” introduces the idea, framework, and science of Moral Courage to your entire organization. Via LIVE video, your dedicated Moral Courage Mentor converses with a moderator of your choice for 30-40 minutes, then takes spontaneous questions from everyone else.
Your Mentor will share compelling stories and research. They’ll explain what “Moral Courage” means and why it matters more than ever. And they’ll unpack core concepts, like how labeling one another can stop us from genuinely appreciating one another.
We can provide sample questions for the conversation or let you completely surprise your Mentor. Either way, the fireside chat is an on-ramp that maximizes access to your Mentor, humanizes the Moral Courage Method of communicating across differences, and helps you identify those employees who’d love to dive deeper.
This LIVE and interactive 90-minute experience teaches that a culture of belonging is defined less by what we believe than by how we communicate our beliefs. Put simply, are we able to discuss sensitive issues without intimidating or “canceling” each other?
As participants, you'll draw from your lived experiences to explore the challenge of listening in times of awkward tension, high emotion, or deep division. You’ll leave the workshop with practical techniques for turning different, even clashing, perspectives into opportunities to engage productively. Best of all, these techniques are actionable right away.
As much a social activity as a professional development exercise, this module leverages the timeliness of Prof. Manji’s latest book, Don’t Label Me: How to Do Diversity Without Inflaming the Culture Wars. (Fun fact: Chris Rock calls the book “genius.”)
BONUS: If located in the continental U.S., your organization will receive a significant discount on orders of 25+ books as well as free shipping to a central address.
EXTRA BONUS: Download the first section of Don't Label Me.
Materials are designed to help participants discover their personal truths, share them with others, compare and contrast opposing viewpoints in healthy ways, and thereby strengthen team spirit.
The package includes a discussion guide, facilitator tips that prioritize openness, and a LIVE capstone webinar led by your Moral Courage Mentor. They’ll invite disagreement with their ideas so they can model how to have constructive conversations about contentious issues.
This on-demand, pre-recorded, and self-paced course is called "Diversity Without Division: Introducing the Moral Courage Method of Communicating Across Divides." It's a master class in how to cultivate organizations that are both inclusive and innovative.
Your new skills also apply beyond work. Use them in your religious congregation, sports team, civic movement, condo board, family — in short, wherever human beings gather and ego gets in the way of healthy collaboration.
The course teaches users how to:
Create brave spaces for asking sincere questions.
Hear, not fear, different opinions.
View themselves and others as more than mascots of “oppressed” and “oppressive” groups.
Recognize that empathy is a much smarter, more constructive emotion than feeling offended.
Draw the best from multiple perspectives to become innovative problem-solvers.
Make it a team-building exercise by enrolling an entire cohort of colleagues. After you've all finished the course, have Moral Courage College lead a debrief. We can guide the cohort to create a realistic plan for practicing the skills taught by the course.
To renew your certification, you'll also receive continuing ed opportunities. And through events hosted by our nonprofit team, you'll be invited to network at the local, national, and global levels — bringing best practices in mentorship back to the people you serve. Visit moralcourage.org.
