LDIR’s curriculum is designed to develop socially conscious leaders with strong skill sets in facilitation, conflict management, and coalition-building. Our approach is informed by a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and social justice; and the belief that people equipped to foster positive intergroup relations are essential to today’s workplaces, schools, governments, and communities.
LDIR periodically offers interactive workshops as standalone training opportunities open to the public. Please visit our calendar to learn about upcoming workshops.
We welcome opportunities to bring our workshops to communities and organizations in all sectors. To get a sense of the kind of workshops we can offer, download our training catalog. Please email Diana Price at diana [at] ldir [dot] org or submit an intake form to learn more.

The LDIR School-based program which started in 1997, develops and promotes multiracial and intergroup collaboration through a formal high school class curriculum, a network of LDIR-trained teachers, and technical support services for teachers, staff, schools and school districts. Currently, the LDIR School-Based Program is run at Woodrow Wilson High School and West Adams Preparatory High School in Los Angeles, CA, and is supporting curriculum development at Mark Keppel High School in Alhambra, CA.
For more information about the school-based program, please contact Li’i Furumoto at 213.241.0218 or email lfurumoto [at] apalc [dot] org.
LDIR offers capacity-building consulting services to organizations and communities. Areas of focus include team-building, anti-bias communication, dialogue facilitation, conflict management, work-life balance, and leadership development. LDIR staff are supported in this work by a diverse cadre of skilled facilitators. For more information or to request a training, please contact Diana Price at diana [at] ldir [dot] org.
We aim to make our consulting services available and accessible to as many communities and people as possible. We are happy to work in partnership with individuals and smaller organizations to determine alternative, budget-appropriate fee structures.
Please note that, to ensure that participants get as much as they can out of our trainings, we limit group size to forty people—though we strongly recommend no more than thirty. Since training activities often involve in-depth discussions, we encourage smaller group sizes of about twenty-five participants.
