Breakthrough Trainings

for Workplace Inclusion

Our DEI e-Learning programs will teach your people strategies for creating a more inclusive and effective workplace.

Introducing our newest course:

The 21 Day Plan for Disarming Microaggressions

The 21 Day Plan for Disarming Microaggressions shows learners how comments or questions that might sound harmless or even like compliments, actually carry a hidden message that hurts. The course includes activities to identify the hidden messages and then practice how to speak up and interrupt a microaggression when it happens or afterward.

Featured: Disarming Microaggressions

What are microaggressions? It’s a term that’s been around since the 70’s, but what are they and what is the impact on people who’ve been the target of a microaggression? How can you speak up as a bystander or ally? And if you’ve said something offensive, how can you recover and rebuild trust?

Featured: Defeating Unconscious Bias

Defeating Unconscious Bias offers a strong and effective resource for educating your people about unconscious bias and teaches how to take action to disrupt our own biases.

What People are Saying

Joel was wonderful to work with! He was great about meeting with us in advance to ensure the training was everything we needed it to be and created a very supportive, safe place for folks to be vulnerable, learn and reflect. We did the Disarming Microaggressions training at my office and it sparked quite a bit of important and open discussion.

Fantastic Unconscious Bias Training yesterday! Great content overall, and I was particularly impressed with the breadth of the training background on the link to the mind-body connection and helpful tools presented. Very happy with my choice of SunShower Learning 🙂

I just completed the training and I wanted to tell you how good I thought it was. First, I thought it was very inclusive! I think it did a great job addressing all types of stereotypes… The format of the video was fantastic. It was engaging, and it seemed very genuine. The acting was good, and I love how the post-test was disguised as “learning.”  Thanks so much for making sure that everyone at Nemours gets this training.
