Racial Equity Expands Fairness and Justice to All
RITE classes are nationally recognized in encouraging a bias-free workplace, that includes racial equity inside and outside the agency. Our classes include a combination of emotional and social intelligence skill-building with unique accountability Tools. Years of research along with hands-on training, give your employees a sole-source experience that is unmatched.
“Training cannot be done the same way we did in the 1980’s. In order to build racial equity that includes fairness and justice, we need to change how we do things, from leadership on down.” ~ Linda Webb

Why RITE Training works for ALL in Public Service
RITE’s critical components of both Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI), helps all in public service, improve communication on many levels. These classes help to improve resiliency awareness, as well as personal and professional relationships.
Emotional Intelligence is being aware of our emotions, and to acknowledge that emotions can drive behavior that impacts others (positively and negatively). Social Intelligence is how we effectively navigate and negotiate all social relationships and situations.
RITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (in this photo), makes us aware of our emotions, how we affect others, and that only we have the power to make those changes.
Anger, Hate, and Blame, lives at the bottom of the RITE Ladder. Although we all can feel those emotions during our day, learning how to control them, is key to great leadership. Bias-free engagement, lives at the top of the Ladder with Love, Gratitude, Joy, and Confidence.
A safe workplace, free of all types of harassment starts with doing the RITE thing, and helping others do the same. Improved communication starts here.
Racial Intelligence is: “The practice of using Emotional Intelligence (EI), Social Intelligence (SI) and the RITE Tools (RI), to treat ourselves and others fairly.”
RITE Professional Workplace Training
Teaching components that reinforce your company’s values of having a professional bias-free workplace culture for all employees is our goal. Each class includes Emotional Intelligence Tools your employees learn from and use in class with each other, and well after we are gone.
Workplace Culture Breakdowns include:
- Unprofessional Behavior

RITE helps reinforce the company culture of treating everyone fairly, in a professional manner. Learning to Value others, is key to building a professional workplace, that will be passed on for years to come.
