The Intercultural Communications Institute is a good place for resources about teaching wisely, training effectively, and managing thoughtfully. Books, workshops, and the summer institute have topics surrounding diversity and intercultural communications.

Diversity Central is a good website to look for ideas about how and what to train with diversity topics. Great place to start looking training methods around sensitive topics.
