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.”

The Transformational Inquiry Model of identity exploration frames a method you can use with students to explore their identities, share their stories and insights with peers, learn more through reading and research, and ultimately take personal and collaborative action to effect social change in their communities.

The benefits of strong student identities earned through the process of social identity exploration are well-documented and include higher self-esteem and confidence, better psychological health, increased engagement in school, academic achievement, and capacity for ethical leadership.

We expressed in our faculty meeting today that this was the best professional development training we have ever attended in a collective 40 years of teaching. Thank you Oman, Martha, and Eddy for making this experience possible. We have already found allies and are taking what we learned to the action phase.
