Eric Ellis, president and CEO of Integrity Development Corp. will lead the training throughout the day. Ellis could not be reached for comment Monday afternoon.
Integrity Development is a management consulting firm based in West Chester, Ohio. The firm specializes in developing diversity programs and has worked with companies that include Honda North America, the U.S. Air Force and Lexmark, according to the organization’s website.
The training will start with sheriff’s deputies but later sessions will include officers from the Springfield Police Division.
Williams also thanked Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly for encouraging deputies to take part in the training.
“He has grabbed a hold of this and ran with it,” Williams said.
In the long run, Williams said she hopes to open the program to other community entities.
