Restorative justice is for everyone. It is my intent that participants from all diverse backgrounds and perspectives be well-served by my teaching and facilitation, that participants' needs be addressed both in and out of trainings, and that the diversity that participants bring be viewed as a resource, strength and benefit. It is my intent to present materials and activities that are respectful of diversity: gender, sexual orientation, ability status, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, culture, perspective, and other background characteristics. Your suggestions about how to improve the value of diversity and inclusion in my trainings are encouraged and appreciated. Please let me know ways to improve the effectiveness of these offerings for you personally or for other participants or groups.
