So, what is a sunshower anyway?

sunA sunshower is defined as a weather phenomenon in which rain rises while the sun is shining. If you’ve ever seen this, it’s beautiful and quite inspiring. Usually it comes with an added bonus: a rainbow! We chose this name, SunShower Learning, because it reflected our philosophy about training and learning – that it comes not just from presenting facts or principles, and not just from hard work. Yes, making real and lasting change takes hard work, new perspectives and knowledge and … inspiration.

Maybe this is why our programs have been used by literally thousands of corporations, schools, governments and other organizations, including Costco, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Kraft, Shell, Oregon Metro, The World Bank, UCLA, Yale and the list goes on and on.

PS – we are unleashing our creativity in the world of online e-learning. The Defeating Unconscious Bias elearning course is now available.  It is SCORM 1.2, 508 compliant and ready to be installed on your LMS or accessed via SunShower’s LMS.  Call for more information and to preview the course.
