Kingdom Diversity: Building Truly Diverse & Inclusive Organizations

A 2-Part Online Training for Christian Leaders and Their Teams

Thursdays, September 24th & October 1st

Class One – Thursday, September 24th | 9:00 am EST – 12:30 pm EST

Class Two – Thursday, October 1st | 9:00 am EST – 12:30 pm EST

This training is for Christian leaders who have a heart to see racial diversity, inclusion and equity throughout their organizations and desire a clear pathway to implement the necessary organizational awareness and change.

This powerful live training event for Christian businesses, non-profits and churches with Ericka D. James will leave you clear and with immediate actions you can take to transform your teams and create a more diverse organization.

It is time to be equipped to know how to value each other’s cultural, intellectual, emotional and spiritual gifts so we can create organizations and communities that are inclusive and effective.  

Diverse ideas, opinions and the process of collective thought brings innovation and clarity that adds value to your organization.


The Kingdom Diversity Formula Difference

Maybe you’ve experienced racial diversity training that left you hopeful, but with no coherent and specific plan to actually activate and bring true racial inclusion in your organization. Or perhaps you have attended a training that left you feeling guilty and hopeless.

Or you have invested in diversity training that did not create lasting change. I call this “The Traditional Approach.”I am clear that this change has to come from Christians who have a heart to change but don’t know how to get beyond challenging or courageous conversations to solutions.

Thanks so much Ericka – greatly appreciate your partnership, leadership and encouragement.  I really felt the Holy Spirit’s presence – and the feedback from all ministry leaders has been extremely affirming of our heart to respond and take action. The Lord is using you mightily, Ericka!
