Teaching Institutes

iChange Collaborative - We offer inclusivity consulting and training workshops to businesses, schools, community organizations, and government agencies.

“When students hear others echo ideas and feelings they themselves have been afraid to express, they realize that underneath their apparent differences, there is far more that unites than divides them.”

From “Inquiry into Identity: Teaching Critical Thinking through a Study of Race, Class and Gender,”
Middle School Journal

Martha and Oman offer an annual 4-day institute in Atlanta for teachers and other educators to gain important skills to promote inclusion practices in their schools and classrooms. The 2017 Summer Diversity Institute for Educators will take place June 19, 20, 21 and 22. For more information, see the flyer below or contact us at info@ichangecollaborative.com or call us at (404) 585-8552.

2017 Summer Institute

The Transformational Inquiry model can help your students explore their own identities, share stories and thoughts with their peers, learn more through reading and research, and ultimately take personal, collaborative action to affect social change in their communities.

Dynamic Dialogues

iChange Collaborative’s highly engaging method scaffolds self-reflection, social interaction, cognitive-based learning and real world action to:

Address the call for educational justice

Use the Transformational Inquiry Method to engage your students

Understand the relationship between social identity formation and ethical leadership

Foster a strong teacher identity

Learn to facilitate Dynamic Dialogues



The work that Martha and Oman are doing is revolutionary in middle level education. Students create, sustain and evaluate critical conversations around race, gender and orientation. The result is student-led curriculum design.
