Eckberg Training Institute Introduces New Training Opportunity M2M American Stories of Cultural Change

Eckberg Lammers has long placed an emphasis on partnerships with communities, providing unparalleled legal services to individuals, businesses, and municipalities; coupled with a focus on training and education to better the community at all levels. Today we are excited to introduce the next step in our commitment to training with a newly developed diversity, equity and inclusion offering.

M2M American Stories of Cultural Change is more than a history lesson, it’s a journey through America from its birth to the present day. M2M uncovers stories of resilience against oppression that reveal the roots of persistent inequalities and foster a deeper understanding of the issues facing our communities today. This training isn’t just about the past; it’s a powerful exploration empowering attendees to collectively shape a better future.

Attendees will be immersed in a curated educational adventure, breaking free from traditional boundaries of a classroom to explore the rich cultures woven into America’s fabric. Engaging in a profound exploration that brings history to life, M2M offers a new perspective and practical strategies for strengthening communities. M2M sparks a positive transformation in the way we view and address DEI and implicit bias. It’s more than a history lesson; it’s an opportunity to build stronger, more connected communities for a brighter and more equitable future.
