what we teach

words we don't say anymore

We know (most) people are fundamentally good -- they don't want to cause offense or harm others. We're in the midst of a period of rapid growth in how we understand the broad spectrums of humanity.

From gender and sexuality, to giving space to marginalized and oppressed groups, global society is adopting new words and phrases all the time.

With all this in mind, we've crafted our training to help us all unpack these changes in a way that doesn't use shame or guilt as a motivator.

why pronouns matter

Our understandings of gender and sexuality are constantly evolving. These changes are being driven by humans who are finding new words to best describe how they see themselves.

We know that gender is not a binary (only men and women), and that folks can choose any variety of pronouns that authentically represent them. Our training covers what pronouns are, why they are important parts of people's identities, and why using them is necessary to building inclusive communities.

exhausted? blame the puritans

Everyone knows that Americans are all overworked, exhausted, and under rested. What few of us know is that we can blame this all on the Puritans.

American culture is built on a broken and damaging model of work. In this training, we'll tell you where this model came from, why it's still used, and what we can do to change it. Spoiler alert - setting boundaries and resting is a good start.
