All of our workshops can be offered either in-person or virtually. All of our workshops are typically limited in number of attendees, so each individual can receive one on one support and engagement with the facilitator. We cater to a variety of learning styles, ensuring that no matter who is in attendance, they will take away important learnings and awareness.
Virtual workshops allow for your remote and distributed teams to log in and learn together, in an engaging and interactive way, from the comfort of their own homes or offices. The virtual experience allows for one-on-one support through the use of video, visuals, audio, breakouts, and chat. Virtual workshops are conducted live but can be recorded for playback later, to review an important point or to share with a teammate who had to drop off early.
We tailor our vast content repository to your specific requirements, providing a framework for understanding concepts so that participants feel empowered to have conversations with colleagues outside of the training.
We provide effective tools and strategies to mitigate bias. Our training creates a lifelong learning experience and lasting change, from the bottom up as well as top-down.
Our educators have deep experience in the fields of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We create a safe space for meaningful, often difficult conversations, removing the fear of being “called out” or saying the “wrong thing”.
Our programming is aimed at a corporate audience and are intended to support and complement existing internal initiatives. We encourage employees at all levels and experience including hiring managers, recruiters, people managers, executives and directors to participate in these conversations.

"I thought this was one of the best workshops I have attended because I was able to engage in challenging content without the triggering panic. The educational visuals were amazing and somehow, the content structure was able to remain neutral while still conveying sometimes uncomfortable topics. I also appreciated the pace and shared scientific info (educational and non- patronizing). Great work!! Would highly recommend."
"She+ Geeks Out delivers training like none other. They are engaging, conversational, educational, and accepting of everyone's thoughts and opinions. Contributing to the success are my amazing colleagues that take part in these conversations, but credit has to be given to SGO for fostering an environment in which these important conversations can occur. If you are considering a greater focus on DEI in 2023, you have to take a look at She+ Geeks Out. You'll learn a ton and be glad you made the investment!"
"This workshop was one that was very eye opening. It helped me dig down deep to learn more about myself which has also made me more mindful of how I operate with others. My facilitator was awesome and helped my group feel at ease with uncomfortable conversations, which led to great engagement from the participants."
"Every team member who did the workshop loved it, and our leadership team is adamant that we bring in SGO again for a team-wide, mandatory workshop!"
"I've been to about half a dozen DEI trainings, and this was by far the most useful. I think the combination of theory and specific examples was great."
"The facilitation was really spot on with the balance between educating, giving time to process/think, and giving space for people to speak up. The facilitator was also really welcoming and affirming of each comment/observation that was shared, which created a very positive learning environment. The use of breakout rooms to engage in conversation combined with sharing key points in the larger group was a great way to facilitate everyone's engagement, too."
"The conversations of the group were great. We all had varied opinions, and I liked how safe the conversation felt. The facilitators really made it a positive experience."
