Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) support is a lens we apply to all of our work. Additionally, we provide facilitated workshops, research and systems transformation counsel to organizations of all sizes and functions and sectors(e.g. education, government, non-profit, corporations). Our services span a continuum inclusive (but not limited to): equity centered mission, vision and value development support for new or pivoting entities; training and capacity building of staff and leadership cabinets; workshop and retreat facilitation as well as entire organizational redesign. We believe that change is hard. Often times our clients are committed to the realization that “something has to change” but may not possess the expertise to propose the “what” or the “how”. As a result, we start with an intricate baseline assessment and asset inventory mapping exercise administered to the team and the ecosystem. We assume the best and utilize the baseline assessment to create a distinct and differentiated approach informed by the priorities, will, skill, capacity, organizational operations and client goals to develop a road-map to goal achievement. We adhere to the principles of authentic community engagement to design pathways which allow entities and their clients to undergo reconciliation and build relationship equity. Our support is never severed. Our consultants all have lived experience and are committed to working alongside entities as they strive towards anti-racist systems, practices, policies or epistemologies.
