NCBI trains young people as well as adults to see themselves as leaders who take initiative to stop mistreatment in any form.

We conduct workshops that open participants’ minds and hearts to the challenges and pain that individuals have experienced as a result of mistreatment because of life circumstance, including race, nationality, religion, gender identity, sexual identity and orientation, disability, socioeconomic class, age, and occupation.

Participants gain insight into their relationship to their own intersecting identity groups as well as to groups different from their own. The result is a greater sense of belonging, and shared responsibility for creating thoughtful and welcoming workplaces and communities.

Participants learn how to counteract prejudice by dispelling misinformation, building pride, intervening effectively in difficult situations and becoming strong allies to others.
