Each year Cultures of Dignity team works with tens of thousands of students, educators, parents, counselors, coaches, and administrators to create communities based on the belief that each person has a responsibility to treat themselves and others with dignity.
We work with communities to create presentations that are respectful of and in alignment with their history and needs. Prior to our presentations, we ask to speak to members of your community to help us tailor the content so that it is most relevant to your attendees. In some presentations, we may also ask for a community member to present with us. In those cases, we will work with you to identify a person within the community who can contribute their expertise.
