November 3 - 4, 2023 Charlotte, NC

This workshop equips members of the fire service with knowledge and skills to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workforce. The course is interactive, placing the participant in thought-provoking situations through role play, group and individual exercises, and class discussion. It includes several scenarios that are constructed to mimic real world situations, allowing participants to simulate how they would handle issues effectively as they emerge in the real world.


  • Defining DEI
  • Exploring My Own Perspectives
  • Using Inclusive Language and Making Inclusive Environments
  • Calling In and Calling Out
  • DEI in My Community
  • Becoming a Better Ally for Inclusivity
