Workshops & Trainings

The LSUA Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is proud to offer a variety of professional development training workshops which are codified in three pathways: Education, Advocacy and Allyship.  While training workshops may be requested in any order, the workshops were designed to build upon each other. 

Please scroll through the list of options below for available training workshops. If you do not see options that fit your needs, we can tailor existing trainings to assist you with achieving your goals of creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment.  We look forward to working with you! 

To schedule a training workshop, please submit the  training request form. Please be prepared to participate in a brief pre-assessment to determine if the training workshop you requested aligns with your needs. Pre-assessments may be facilitated virtually or face to face.

Workshop Trainings must be requested at least 4 weeks prior to your desired date without exception. For more information on tailoring one of the workshop trainings to fit your needs, please email
