Workshop & Training Offerings
Customized & Responsive
When our workplaces are welcoming and affirming, we all win. Policies can help to advance D&I work at your company, but there’s no replacement for turning those words into actions, connections, initiatives, and progress.
Plexus education programs and consultation services are customizable, responsive and adaptable for any organization or audience. Sessions are easily designed for maximum participant engagement and include interactive activities and discussion. Topics can be presented in a number of formats, including panel discussions, Q&A, Lunch & Learns, workshops and keynote presentations.
We offer a comprehensive menu of courses, and adjust our curriculum based on the unique needs of your leadership, teams, and sector. Every training contract includes two hours of free consulting from our certified trainers to design and customize meetings with our host organization. This allows us to be highly responsive, attentive to the needs of your mission and business model and creative in our approach to training modules that meet your organizational needs.
Our trainers can demonstrate best practices, mentor your leaders in current research, and offer evaluations that provide insight into your team members and programs. Our goal is to help you best serve your LGBTQ identified employees and provide tools and resources for allied employees.
