The Opening Doors Diversity Project’s mission is to provide quality leadership, technical assistance, training and education that support all dimensions of diversity. Our partnership approach is distinguished by its vision, research base and its safe and expansive learning opportunities.
People who go through the experience tend to come out as agents for change within their sphere of influence. You see individuals go back to their workplaces and bring with them the lessons learned, strategies learned from Opening Doors and feel empowered to affect change where it might be needed. Whenever I have been at a table talking about the university and the role that diversity plays in; curriculum, student orientation, leadership, etc., what I have observed is that there is more than one voice speaking the same language about the role diversity should play. I recognize the people as having attended Opening Doors.
Bringing Partnership to our organization has made a dramatic difference in the level of communication, collaboration, trust and consideration among staff. It also gave me the language and the skills to effectively and genuinely support staff in resolving conflicts and problem-solving. Knowing that there is someone there that I can call and get support from when issues arise, which they always do, has been invaluable.
Opening Doors begins at 10 a.m. on the first day and concludes at 3 p.m. on the last day. These three-day, two-night overnight retreats are typically scheduled from Wednesday morning - Friday mid-afternoon.
