The Shift: The Course
Learn the foundational principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion work within a workplace.
In working with organizations over the years, a reoccurring question came up as we helped them to begin their company’s D.E.I. work: What exactly is D.E.I. and how do we make sure everyone on our team has a common understanding of what we mean when we talk about the work we are doing?
Enter The Shift.
This course is designed to help individuals build a common understanding of D.E.I. core principles before engaging further in the work. We cover the basics that we believe every person needs to understand and then we add in a few proven frameworks of our own, in order to help you get started leading this work within your own business or organization.
The Shift consists of core modules that include trainings on:
- An overview of the meanings of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and how they show up in a workplace
- Unconscious Bias Training and how to unpack your own biases
- Understanding the impact of Power, Privilege, and Prejudice in a workplace
- How to build an anti-racist, inclusive culture
- Unpacking racial equity and how to identify in your workplace
Each module comes with additional suggested exercises, reflection questions, and resources for you to take your learning to a deeper space for you and your time. And because it’s all self-guided, you can take each module on your time and pace your learning in any way that works best for you!

Each module is available through a digital platform that you can access through your computer, tablet, or phone, making it easy for you to take your learning on the go! We also provide full transcriptions for every lesson.
ACCESS TO NEW MODULES...FOR FREE!
Annually, we’ll be recording and adding new modules to the course for you to continue learning…at no additional cost. It’s a great way to continue your learning after a one-time investment.
SUGGESTED RESOURCES & TOOLS TO CONTINUE THE DISCUSSION
We know that the learning doesn’t stop here and in fact, has only just begun so each module provides you with a list of suggested resources, reflection questions, and suggested conversations to continue your learning.
ACCESS TO OUR E@WORK COMMUNITY
Every purchase of The Shift comes with free access to our community, E@Work, an inclusive virtual space designed to connect people across industries committed to doing D.E.I. work in their companies.
Core Definition Examples
In order to change the structure and culture that you work in, you must first address your own biases, beliefs, and behaviors that are contributing to an inequitable workplace.
Post-Course Tools & Resources
This is the muscle of the work you should be doing in order to create change that leads to an anti-racist workplace. This means learning what’s wrong, why, and how to change it so that’s equitable for all.
Access to E@Work
Almost all workplaces have created cultures that only allow one type of homogenous team member or client to thrive. It’s important to unpack what this is and how to redesign it.
Imagine after taking The Shift…
Having a clear understanding of the core words and phrases in D.E.I. work that you keep seeing
Having a clear framework for how to begin D.E.I. conversations in your own organization
Having tools to approach your own individual journey and your company’s journey when it comes to how to progress in D.E.I.
Having a foundational workshop that can be used as the core course for onboarding new team members to your organization’s DEI work…without having to teach a session live every time.

I’m Dynasti, Creator of The Shift.
I’m committed to seeing all entrepreneurs and organizations move to centering racial equity in all of their practices. Over the years, I’ve worked with organizations to get beyond the beginning stages of diversity and inclusion work and into the deep work of addressing inequities that are keeping them from becoming anti-racist.
This work is deeply personal for me as a Black leader who has worked in both for-profit and not-for-profit spaces fighting to realize change for BIPOC staff. I believe that no matter what your level or role, everyone has the power to unpack and change workplace systems and practices that keep the traditionally marginalized oppressed. I also believe this work can not be done alone and should be done in the community so I see myself as much of a continued student in addition to being the lead educator of this space.
This foundational course is for the student in all of us, to help us continue to build our own knowledge of D.E.I. work so that we can not only teach others but also learn how to do the work differently ourselves.
Can anyone take this course?
Yes, absolutely, it is open to anyone, anywhere!

You Might Be Thinking,
“This Course Sounds Great But…”
“I’ve already read so many books and articles.”
Yes, us too, and it left us with 20 different definitions and frameworks that weren’t aligned. The Shift is designed to provide you with core common knowledge and definitions that can be used to build more complex D.E.I. concepts and frameworks from.
” Oh great, another set of videos to watch that I won’t get too.”
I hear you and trust me, it took us awhile to decide we were going to create even a short set of modules that were video-based. But one of the big focuses of watching each video is to them share with us your questions that are still lingering after each one. Why? Because your questions are the foundation for which new modules we’ll add to the course for your ongoing learning!
” I love learning in a group rather than alone.”
This makes complete sense which is why we’ve created group licensure pricing so that you can take the modules as a group and use our attached debriefing guides to discuss and continue learning together.
