Workshops, Teaching & Keynotes

Three Circles conducts general and organizationally specific workshops in three different areas of diversity and inclusion design: personal, professional and organizational change. Experience teaches us that successful change towards diversity and inclusion has a better chance of success if efforts in all these areas are reflected in coherent strategies leading to specific and measurable actions.

Periodic workshops on the fundamentals of multicultural environmental education are held nationally, with a current focus in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Seattle/Puget Sound region. Workshop schedules will be posted on this site.

Three Circles provides keynote addresses for conferences and conducts seminar and guest speaker appearances by request.
