Human Relations Programs & Trainings

There are several types of programs and trainings that fall under the umbrella “human relations;” several approaches to teaching skills in navigating the rich landscape of diversity that is LA County and its residents. Some such programs focus on teaching techniques in conflict resolution and mediation whereas others guide participants in recognizing their own ingrained stereotypes helping them work towards bias reduction on the individual level. Still others go deeper into examining and challenging the historical and institutional roots of oppression and inequity that keep racism alive with entrenched policies and ingrained assumptions. These type of programs usually rely on a leadership development or community building component that mobilizes participants into effective change agents to address racism and improve intergroup relations in their communities. As you can see, this field is a complex one. We have listed the human relations programs here by the type of training they provide, including each in multiple categories if applicable.   

 

SUB CATEGORIES

Gender Awareness 

  1. African Community Resource Center Inc. 
  2. Los Angeles City Commission on the Status of Women 
  3. Los Angeles Commission on Assaults Against Women (LACAAW) 

Conflict Resolution, Mediation & Problem Solving Institutional Oppression & Inequality

As the Commission’s charge is to help improve intergroup relations, we aim to include here primarily conflict resolution and mediation resources that address disputes that have a specifically intergroup dimension to them. Hence, these resources are not meant to include independent mediation services or to address neighbor-to-neighbor or consumer-vendor disputes, unless these threaten to foster intergroup tensions in the larger community.
