Diversity & Inclusion
We have access to leading experts in diversity and inclusion who look at the workplace through a trauma-informed lens. We design curriculums and conduct workplace research. This helps us understand the role of diversity and inclusion in workers’ experience to discover how the workplace can reduce trauma, implicit bias, racism, and oppression. Research helps us discover the steps necessary for creating a workplace where all workers feel welcomed, valued, and understood.
Preparing professionals to facilitate workplace mental health/psychological safety
This training is for HR and OHS leaders, union representatives, and mental health committee members assigned to facilitate workplace mental health and psychological safety. This program is delivered regionally to a group of employers who send individuals or teams to enhance their workplace mental health-psychologically safe facilitators’ skill sets. We offer these workshops through associations and conference planners who approach Dr. Bill Howatt to lead them. Contact us to explore the kinds of programs we can offer this population via an in-person, half- or full-day event led by Dr. Howatt.

Dr. Bill Howatt's leadership session on building psychologically safe workplaces was extremely well-received by our audience of Ontario Public Service leaders.
