Courage is the Cure: Facilitator Training for Equity and Inclusion™

January 26, 2023 - November 11, 2023


We’re living in a time where we can no longer show up to LEAD without doing our own work, where change requires us to dig deeper and BE different to LEAD different. Leaders are striving to be more effective and impactful – and are struggling. Emotions and conditioning get in the way. Lack of vulnerability, compassion, and fear get in the way. To sustain in this work requires Emotionally Intelligent Equity & Inclusion™. This work requires courageous leadership development.


If you are a new – or established – leader in a school or organization,
if you are designated DEIB professional,
if you are a facilitator or coach growing into the DEIB space,
then this certification is for YOU.

The Courage is the Cure™ certification program is rooted in my signature approach of emotionally intelligent equity and inclusion leadership development. I use my own framework, as well as components of privatized curriculum from best in class leaders and organizations. The certification has a balanced interplay of racial healing work for SELf-transformation along with courageous leadership competencies for systemic-transformation.
