Creating cultures of fearless inclusion
Taking culture to the next level
We are taking the diversity and inclusion conversation to a deeper level through our consulting. Because diversity is a fact, we focus on fearless inclusion and nurturing belonging.
Fearless inclusion is not a feeling
Fearless inclusion is a mindset sparked by sincere intention to appreciate all, followed by a consistent series of actions; and it satiates the inherent human need to be seen and to belong.
People are at the core of all belonging (diversity & inclusion) initiatives and people change because they are driven to connect to something bigger.
That bigger thing is belonging
The old command and control structure of leadership is gone. Creating a culture of belonging requires organizational intentionality and a new set of leadership skills: conscious communication, inclusive management and emotional intelligence.
This is challenging work
It requires that everyone in the organization cultivate a healthy relationship with discomfort and conflict, and hone the ability to mindfully navigate uncomfortable conversations. It also impacts the entire business ecosystem – systems, policies and processes, legal and employee experience, business development and branding, community, and social responsibility.
We work with our clients to identify, develop, and execute on initiatives, programs and strategies that align with their organizational goals and strategic vision through the lens of fearless inclusion and cultivating belonging.
The results of making these changes are powerful, impactful, and long-lasting.
How it works
We break down our consulting into the three major categories. We help our clients in each of these areas independently, and our clients often flow from one through to the others. We are here to facilitate your growth in the best way for your organization.
We help clients establish goals, measures and objectives for designing a strategy to cultivate a more diverse, equitable and fearlessly inclusive culture. Strategy development starts with data collection, assessment, evaluation. We compare the results against industry data, trends and best practices inform goals and priorities aligned to the client's overarching strategic framework or plan.
We work with clients to identify initiatives, tactics and activities to achieve long-term DEI goals and objectives. Strategy development includes identifying a framework, defining project parameters, setting operational milestones, establishing quantitative & qualitative measures to measure progress and link outcomes to existing strategic priorities. We then pull everything together to build an executable strategy
We assist in all aspects of implementation. We start with sequence strategic initiatives, then map out a project plan, that includes timelines periodic review, communications, interim reporting. We work with our clients to develop a detailed implementation plan that address risk, metrics, benchmarking, project management & oversight, and reporting. We also identify a process for issue resolution.
