We recently got up close and personal with Lisette Martinez, an award-winning SunShower Learning expert who serves as the Executive Vice President for Inclusion, Diversity & Community Engagement for Jefferson Health.  Recognized as a Top Diversity Leader by Modern Healthcare, Martinez was recently the featured guest during a free OpenSesame webinar entitled “DEI Leap: Putting DEI into practice in the healthcare industry.”  During the event, which was done in the style of a fireside chat, Martinez covered:

  • practical tips to effect true change for the betterment of healthcare employees and patients

  • how to operationalize DEI and elevate it from a requisite set of promises to an authentic commitment that drives purposeful change

  • how to implement diversity and inclusion education to help people get past the fears, insecurities and discomfort they experience when exploring their own biases

We encourage you to watch the webinar recording here!

Martinez also introduced her new eLearning course, DEI Leap: Turn Intention into Action, which has been created in partnership with SunShower Learning.

The DEI Leap with Lisette Martinez – coming in June

This master class comes out of Lisette Martinez’s experiences, lessons learned and visions for what today’s employees and organizations need and want – diverse and truly inclusive workplaces. 

This micro-learning master class with Lisette Martinez gives you the chance to sit with a DEI strategist. Across her career, she has created and implemented the first board-approved, comprehensive DEI plan, created DEI councils, implemented an initiative to reduce disparities in patient care, convened an annual summit, established mentorship programs, established supply chain systems and established the first dashboard to track and improve diverse hiring across the enterprise. 

“I learned that if you don’t embed something into the fabric of the organization, if you don’t build something that’s perceived as integral to success, then it’s never gonna get done,” says Martinez. 

The work of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is not about changing people. It’s not a fight against something – the work is about people, it’s slow, personal and should be inspirational with concrete action steps people can learn and practice. Lisette Martinez guides you how to do this.

FAQ: Training formats, technical details and licensing

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
In what formats is your training offered?
We offer our training programs in three formats:
• Self-Paced Online Learning – asynchronous e-Learning course
• Trainer’s Toolbox – provides access to our videos, Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and handouts
• Interactive Live Webinars – SunShower experts deliver training in customized workshops on Zoom
What is Self-Paced Online Learning?
The streaming video course includes the video and offers a bit more information and experience for learners. It’s still short – just 15 minutes! The course has a 10-question quiz at the end and offers a downloadable completion certificate.

With a 1-year license, you can add this SCORM 1.2 course to your Learning Management System and offer it to your employees inside your own training ecosystem. You can train a handful of people or thousands. Select the level of usage you anticipate and purchase here, or book 20 minutes with Joel Lesko, SunShower’s Producer/President, to craft a custom license.

What is the Trainer’s Toolbox and how does it work?
The Trainer’s Toolbox is designed to replace DVDs and USBs. No more, “Who’s got the USB?” or “Uh-oh, we lost it”. All the materials that used to reside on a DVD or USB are now easily accessible from the SunShower Learning website, ready for you whenever you conduct a training. The Trainer’s Toolbox can be used for in-person or virtual training sessions, regardless of your computer’s operating system. You can play the videos full-screen and and present on Teams, Zoom and other virtual platforms.

Your subscription includes full access to the videos as well as a downloadable Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and PDF handouts. And, pricing is flexible, based on team size: small (1-5 facilitators), medium (6-14 facilitators) or large (15-29 facilitators). Upon subscribing, you’ll receive an email from our website with the link and login credentials.

How is the Self-Paced Online Learning course different from the Trainer’s Toolbox?
The online course is designed for individual, self-paced use by logging into your own learning management system (LMS) or accessing SunShower’s online LMS. In contrast, the Trainer’s Toolbox is a set of resources (videos, a Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and handouts) for you and/or your team of trainers to use to conduct your own instructor-led training – in-person or on virtual platforms like Zoom.
Are your online courses accessible?
Accessibility is not just about captions. We are committed to the highest values of accessibility. To achieve that, our roadmap includes not only the basics – transcripts, captions, alt text, and many more features – but also the Extended Audio Description (AD) and other critical corrections. Inclusion is built into every aspect of our work. Each course is at a different stage of development.
