Diversity Training for Public and Private Agencies
August 2007 - December 2007
DDS's Fall 2007 schedule of on-going Diversity training for DDS and Private Provider employees! All sessions provide an introduction and awareness on diversity issues, regulations and strategies. Over the last several months, we have successfully partnered with our private providers in hosting this training. We are fortunate to have Ability Beyond Disability in Bethel, CT host a session at their agency this Fall.

Program Description: This introductory level training session will offer participants from all levels of the organization an opportunity to explore differences in individual and group identity; enhance understanding of discrimination and hate crimes and what protections are available; enhance skills for dealing with inter-personal and inter-group diversity-related conflict; as well as finding a common ground on which to build work relationships and a 'diversity-positive' organizational culture.

We would also like to recognize the following private provider agencies who have partnered with DDS over the last year in delivering the training:

Innovative Childrens Environmental Services Inc.
Marrakech Inc.
New England Residential Services
Residential Management Services
Seacorp Inc.
Sunrise Northeast
The Kennedy Center
