Virginia Beach, Va. — Coastal garners yet another accolade as Drop by Drop, its best-selling micro-inequities program, was recently awarded the 2009 CINE Special Jury Award, Best in Business - Safety, Training & Employee Development. The recognition is another stamp of approval, a solid testimony to Coastal's commitment to quality Human Resources training.
The CINE is an organization internationally renowned for its prestigious non-theatrical film and video competitions. It was founded in 1957 to "present a realistic view of American life, its people, products, and philosophy" through documentary films. Since then, CINE has continued to be a benchmark of excellence.

Drop by Drop tackles one of the industry's most pernicious, if not much-neglected issues: micro-inequities. These are the small slights, subtle jokes, offhand comments and casual remarks that harass in barely perceptible yet nonetheless devastating ways.
Drop by Drop's success lies in innovative presentation. It personifies the problem in a narrator that literally walks viewers through the sinister psycho-social dynamics of micro-inequities. Using this insider’s perspective, the program yields a first-hand look at how the most innocent of gestures, words and body language can be tarnished with malice and discrimination. This in-your-face, no-holds-barred exposition is a powerful way to hammer home the message. It challenges a laid-back approach to diversity, spurs participants to spot and stop micro-inequities and helps cultivate a more respectful and harmonious workplace.
