Diversity is becoming an increasingly important consideration in the consultation field. Consultants are often in a unique position to make significant individual and organizational change with respect to diversity. As the field beings to develop cross-cultural consultation competencies and skills, it is important to emphasize the sociopolitical factors of diversity, specifically oppression. Lessons learned from a course on White racism are presented, with a focus on strategies for identifying and changing contemporary racist behavior. These lessons are presented as useful foundations for training preservice or inservice consultants to address diversity concerns and related systems of oppression.
