Training for Home Visitors

Location Change!

Ready or Not! Building Strategies to Interrupt Bias & Racism in Our Home Visiting Workplace & Work Culture


After much anticipation, the Minnesota Coalition for Family Home Visitors is happy to begin enrollment into this in-depth opportunity for Minnesota home visitors, and their teams, to assess and change their personal practice to better integrate equity and anti-racist practices in their family home visiting organization. Participating home visitors and their programs will have access to the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), a widely used and effective cross-culturally valid assessment for building cultural competence. 
This training opportunity aims to build one’s personal and professional capacity to create and support anti bias within the workplace and within our organizational culture. This cohort-based training will have two foci; 


  1. Continued personal learning and growth around bias and racism’s impact on my work and life, and 

  1. Skill building and team support to improve my workplace environment and/or program improvement to help better serve our families, community and staff. 

This opportunity is intended for home visitors who participated in the first foundational series, Confronting the Harmful Impacts of Racism & Bias on Maternal & Child Health Outcomes (formerly, Addressing the Impacts of Unconscious Bias & Racism on Maternal and Child Health Inequities in Family Home Visiting) offered in 2022 and 2023. 
The trainings series will run March-June 2024; and be offered in two locations in Minnesota (Duluth
 and the Twin Cities). Below is an outline of dates and length of training.
