Wondering what to expect from the course?
We've all heard of exit interviews - but what if there was a way to identify and correct areas within your business that are causing/could cause people to leave BEFORE you lose good employees?
Sign up below to get a sneak peek of one of the most popular and impactful parts of the course - the Stay Interview. This short clip will give you a good idea of what you can expect when you take DEI 101 with Ren.
"Her charismatic personality allows her to captivate any audience when discussing provocative topics. She challenges her audience to be introspective and aware of the difficulties our diverse beer community faces and what can be done to encourage NOT acceptance and tolerance — but how to actively promote inclusivity.”
- Co-owner, Counterpoint Brewing Co., Kitchener
What Is The Course Experience?
There are now two ways to engage with this course:
- Course Only (On Demand)
With this version you get lifetime access to all course videos (there are 5 short videos) where Ren introduces definitions you'll need to engage with the content, and actionable ideas you can start implementing in your business right away to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive space.
Course + Live Sessions
With this version you get everything from the course only option, plus! You get two live sessions with Ren:
*An intro meet and greet session where you'll get the chance to meet Ren and anyone else who may have booked the same session as you. This is a great time to introduce yourself, provide Ren with some background on your/your organization's DEI journey so far, and to talk a little bit about the challenges you've been facing and the goals you have while taking the course.
*A final coaching session where you'll get the chance to ask any questions that have come up while working through the content. This is your time to really dig in with Ren and your fellow attendees to break down anything you might still be struggling with, barriers you might be facing within your organization in actioning pieces of the course, and to generally listen to and learn from Ren and each other.
NOTE: Live sessions are open for you to book based on your schedule, links will be provided in the Welcome section in the learning management system.
"The course is a fantastic introduction to DEI, with Ren's clear and relatable approach making it easy to learn. You'll be prompted throughout to not only learn the concepts but think hard and honestly about how each can be applied to your own business. It's a wonderful blend of strong theory with individual application, and by the end, you'll look at your own business practices far more critically with the tools to make change for the better.”
“Ren possesses a unique perspective shaped by her life and work experience, combined with a passion for beer. She shares this outlook with an equally singular voice, one that is full of refreshing candor infused with personal truth. Her perspective, delivery and humility make Ren significantly influential in amplifying the conversation of diversity in the beer industry, in a way that can create real change. When it came to finding a speaker to energize the dialogue of inclusion and diversity with our team – there was no better individual than Ren Navarro. Thanks Ren!”
