The Power Shift Project has updated its signature Workplace Integrity curriculum with new content, now designed to be delivered online. The goal of this curriculum is to produce workplaces free of harassment, discrimination and incivility, and filled with opportunity, especially for those who have traditionally been denied it.
This free, one-of-a-kind interactive training has been updated to reflect the ongoing racial reckoning across the United States and the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been redesigned so that trainers can teach the curriculum virtually.
The Power Shift Project will lead five Train the Trainers sessions in 2021 for newsroom and journalism classroom leaders who want to learn how to present the curriculum in their organization. Our Train the Trainers program consists of two, 2.5-hour online webinars. And thanks to a CBS Corp. grant, both the training and the Workplace Integrity curriculum kit you receive upon completion are free.
Interested people can register now at the link below. The Workplace Integrity training will be virtual until it is safe to gather in person, out of precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications will be accepted from individuals in the news industry and related journalism educational organizations based in North America who could deliver the training in their own organizations or who would be committed to teaching the curriculum to other media organizations.
“What sets Workplace Integrity apart is how it uses real newsroom experiences to spark honest conversation among peers. It goes beyond theory to real life. I’ve marveled at how people share deeply personal moments about racism, discrimination, sexism, and gender inequality in newsrooms and how that has impacted them. Some told about experiences for the first time. Their candor opened the eyes of many people who are now challenging themselves to do better and be better.”
– Jill Williams, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
What’s In the “Train the Trainers” Workshop: These are virtual workshops. They are by world-class leadership educator and coach Jill Geisler, who designed the Workplace Integrity curriculum. This curriculum, custom-tailored for media organizations, is built around the four pillars of critical thinking, courageous conversations, do you qualify as an ally and building cultures of respect and trust. Participants who complete the Train the Trainers workshop should be able to take away skills to deliver the Workplace Integrity curriculum in their own organizations. These include:
“I bring Workplace Integrity training into every aspect of our classroom and newsroom experience, having courageous conversations to build cultures of respect and trust among students, faculty and staff. When we use critical thinking to challenge assumptions to the norm early in a young journalist’s career, we set the tone for journalism’s workplaces of the future.”
– Amy Simons, Missouri School of Journalism
