Diversity Training 

Have you ever thought about...

  • All the different elements of multiculturalism? 
  • What constitutes racism and what doesn't? 
  • How to communicate with a person from a culture unfamiliar to you? 
  • How to address diversity in the workplace? 
  • How to create an equality plan? 

The training antiracist tools and reflects on ways to understand and operate in an organization that values diversity. The training also delves into self-awarenss of one’s own power and privilege and  the dismantling of structural racism.

Starting by examining one's own identity, culture, and attitude towards the "other." 

The training aims to awaken the ability to recognize factors that guide one's thinking and actions. The purpose is to generate insights based on personal experiences. The goal is to strengthen communication skills and provide tools for positive encounters. The training incorporates diverse methods including group work and discussions. 

Diversity agents offer packages such as:

Dialogue cards workshops last approximately three hours and are conducted according to the principles of safer spaces. Participants can reflect on how cultural diversity and sustainable development manifest in the workplace and how organizations can develop their practices to be more equitable and sustainable, aligning with their community values. The aim is to achieve tangible changes. 

The dialogue cards for cultural diversity and sustainable development are a result of collaboration between the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Arts Promotion Centre Finland, as part of the activities of the Working Group on Cultural Policy, Immigrants, and the Promotion of Cultural Diversity.

Diverse and Accessible Arts and Cultural Practitioner 

It is possible to order customized training or development days tailored to your needs related to diversity and the accessibility of services from the Culture for All service. The intention is to provide cultural institution representatives with training tailored specifically to their needs, situations, and challenges, beneficial for everyday work.  

The training began by reflecting on what constitutes "us" thinking and who are the "others" whose accessibility we aim to improve. Once the definition of the "us-group" became clearer, we explored how we view "different audiences." Are they customers, guests, or part of us? Lastly, we considered what could be the means or reasons for diverse audiences to flock to museums in droves.
