Basecamp DEI Training

Navigate workplace inclusion with Basecamp, our signature DEI training series.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are more than just buzzwords. They’re critical components of a healthy, productive, and innovative workplace. 

Basecamp, our three-part DEI training series, isn’t just a course; it’s a transformative experience. This workplace diversity and inclusion training is designed for medium to large organizations seeking real change. Through our unique Conscious Facilitation approach and engaging sessions, we empower your team to foster inclusivity, mitigate biases, and champion allyship in the workplace.

Transform your Workplace with Basecamp: DEI Training

Highly inclusive companies have better bottom lines, experiencing 1.4x more revenue growth. 

In today’s dynamic landscape, inclusion is not just an ideal; it’s a business imperative. Is your team new to working with each other or new to DEI in general? Maybe you’re lacking a shared, foundation of DEI knowledge. Our Basecamp three-course DEI training certificate program is the ideal starting point. With our help, you can cultivate a shared understanding and set the stage for an inclusive workplace culture. One where every single employee feels that they belong.

Sky and Sherilyn brought this important topic to our team in a kind, straightforward manner. They met the group where they were at in their diversity journey and educated in a no-shame environment.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Foundations

The first course in our Basecamp series is DEI Foundations. Here, participants will delve into the business case for diversity. They’ll learn how creating an inclusive workplace is not only the right thing to do, but also the smart thing. They will explore core concepts like identity, power, and privilege. This will allow participants to gain a deeper understanding of how these factors impact workplace dynamics.


Unconscious Bias Foundations

The second course in our Basecamp series is Unconscious Bias Foundations. We’ll take a closer look at how our brains make automatic decisions based on societal norms and stereotypes. Participants will learn how to recognize and interrupt their own biases through this valuable unconscious bias training. This will facilitate the creation of a culture that mitigates the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace.



The final course in our Basecamp series, Allyship, explores the role of allies in creating a more inclusive workplace. Participants will learn how to recognize and address microaggressions and other inequities, and how to use their privilege to advocate with and for marginalized colleagues.

Conscious Facilitation: Our Approach to Culture Change

As Certified XChange Guides, our style is grounded in conscious facilitation. Our transformative approach that shifts from being the “sage on the stage” to the “guide on the side.” Here’s what that involves:

  • Asking, Inviting, Unlocking: We replace “knowing, telling and controlling” with “asking, inviting and unlocking.” This approach harnesses collective wisdom, enabling participants to amplify learning, create authentic connections, and build community.
  • From Ideating to Implementation: The XChange Approach, rooted in Neuroscience and Positive Psychology, empowers inclusive conversations leading to inspired action. It bridges ideas to implementation, making it a powerful tool for impactful and sustainable change.
  • Transforming Learning Experiences: The most fundamental experience of being human is belonging. We believe that when groups come together, it enables our capacity to learn, solve and create exponentially.

This course provided a new way to view diversity and equity. I appreciated the facilitators’ comfort with the topic and the structure of the session. I would highly recommend to other organizations.

Basecamp Testimonials

“The facilitators, Sky and Sherilyn, were excellent: clear, attentive, well-prepared, and provided just enough guidance for the group while staying out of the way to allow participants to share and engage with each other. I am usually skeptical of DEI training, and I’ve experienced some that have felt rote and superficial, but this one pleasantly surprised me and it provided a forum for interesting reflection and discussion.”

“The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion course that Sky and Sherilyn delivered for our organization was so wonderful. The content was engaging and thought-provoking, and the facilitators guided us through exercises in a gentle, non-judgmental environment. I learned a lot from the experience and it inspires me to want to continue unpacking this content in the future.”

“Fantastically done, engaging and insightful.”

“This course is definitely worth taking, the discussions and information that came through were valuable, and the facilitators were very knowledgeable. Having the safe space as was provided here, to have open and honest conversations about issues that may be difficult to talk through, can only help towards more open and effective changes towards DEI.”
