The Florida Bar’s Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism presents:
"Diversity Facilitator Train the Trainer"
The "Train the Trainer" workshop is designed to enable those completing the course to be able to moderate classes on diversity in their local area and/or around the state. Exercises within the course enable the participants to learn how to teach others to be more aware of diversity issues and how this can improve their work environment experience. Successful completion of this workshop earns the participant 14 general CLE credits including 5 professionalism CLE credits. To become a certified diversity trainer you must take this workshop and also teach some portion of the “Successful Lawyering in a Diverse Society” workshop within 6 months of completing this workshop. The “Train the Trainer” workshop was developed by The Florida Bar’s Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism along with the Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism’s Diversity Subcommittee and Ex-officio Commission member Ms. Wilhelmina Tribble, President of Lowe, Tribble and Associates, Inc.
What are the goals of the “Train the Trainer” program?
The course goals are:
1) To develop a greater awareness of “diversity” as it relates to the profession;
2) To develop a group of attorney/educators for teaching skills in addressing diversity workplace issues throughout the state; and
3) To better understand the concepts of diversity in the workplace as a professionalism issue.
There are a limited number of students accepted due to space constraints so please register early.
There is no cost to become a trainer. The Bar anticipates that graduates will go out and moderate training when needed thereby enriching Florida’s legal community.
