The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), through a FEMA funded SAFER grant is holding a "Developing Inclusive Teams Workshop" pre-con at the IAFC's Fire-Rescue International on August 22-23 in San Antonio, Texas.
There are 20 spots available in the class.
The course will equip 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. The course is designed to allow participants to reflect on their own perceptions and beliefs about DEI topics, explore individual diversity, and experience the impact their language and behavior can have on those around them. Participants will leave the course with a strong foundation in DEI to create and support inclusive environments.
Student travel expenses (airfare, hotel, lyft/uber/taxi, etc.) to and from the course are reimbursable within IAFC guidelines. Once you submit the form and are admitted to the class, you will receive information regarding the travel reimbursement.
