Workshops & Retreats
Join us at Chez Genèse for a small group workshop or retreat!
Our disability education and advocacy work first got off the ground with the launch of our non-profit, Compass Greensboro, a few years ago. Over the past few years, we have learned more about our own business and our goals and hopes for education and advocacy. We've also become more aware of the need within our business community for team culture and disability integration training. All that said, we have shifted focus from employee training to employer training and have pulled the work of Compass Greensboro under the umbrella of the restaurant. Meaning, the non-profit is no longer the entity coordinating our training, but our Chez Genèse team is still just as excited and committed to dive deeper into our work in the areas of disability employment education and advocacy and to share our experiences with other community and industry leaders! Welcome to our community. We are so honored to have you here.
For now, we have several workshop & retreat options, each designed to grow you and your team in areas of communication, community, and integrated workspaces. If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.663.7399.
Training level 01 - this is a great 1st step! You're stretching yourself.
We are excited to offer four workshops, open to the public, in partnership with our French Supper Club. Each workshop covers information and discussion centered around disability culture and adaptive workspaces. Workshops can be taken separately but do build on each other and are recommended as a set!
Workshops are split into focus groups of either business leaders or personal interest. Topics include Disability Awareness & Language, Self-Advocacy in Life & Work, Inclusive and Adaptive Workspaces, and Creating Community. Click here for dates and registration.

Coaching & Consulting
Coaching: you’re ready to start making structural changes in your work and with your team! Partner with our team on an organizational assessment and audit, complete with plan for change and inclusion, including goal setting and periodic check ins. We focus on leadership focus, hiring practices, adaptability measures, and retention. We recommend at least 6-8 hours for this process.
Consulting: Now that you’ve incorporated changes into your hiring practices, we are available to come in and coach with both your management team and new hires! We are available to assist with systems, brainstorming, training techniques and communication practices. Our goal is not to do the work for you, but to equip you as you make workplace transitions so that you’re set up for success and longevity! Contact us for more information.
