DEI Training Conference

Our Services & Consulting

Many school districts, law enforcement organizations, municipal governments and other public, and private, entities are wrestling with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) endeavors. It has been found that some of these efforts do not provide direction, or an actionable strategy, and, therefore, results in little to no change.

Equity and inclusion are core values vital to the growth of any organization.

A policy is only the beginning. Action is required to ensure that policy is alive and active.

The Illinois Commission on Diversity & Human Relations offers companies, nonprofits and municipalities a number of services to help move their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts forward. Professionals are available to advise local government, especially police departments and schools to resolve "people related" challenges through workshops and services.

"In the country’s perpetual battle to dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, the ICDHR under the leadership of Rev. Brooks reminds us that what is possible is what we make possible. The ICDHR in the spirit of progressivism pushes the envelope on what is possible and has opened my eyes to the demand never to settle for small, marginal victories. We owe it to those who sacrificed so much to get us to this point to work as hard as ever to dream and pursue big things."
