On-Demand Trainings to Advance EDI

These are not the boring equity, diversity, and inclusion trainings that have become all too common. We are giving you fundamental learning in packages that are designed to excite and engage. Grow your team on your own schedule and make sure new team members are adding to and not distracting from making sure all feel welcome and belonging in your organization. There’s something for all experience levels.

Organizational Consulting & Cultural Strategy

While trainings are a first step, embedding EDI into your organization takes a long commitment to systemic and cultural change. We work with you to conduct an assessment of the challenges and opportunities you face, then use that to craft a comprehensive Action Plan that will guide your progress for years to come. We also help organizations tackle strategic planning, program design, and cultural shifts of all kinds.

Customized Workshops & Trainings

Have us create exclusive engagements that are custom-tailored to your communities’ needs. We specialize in innovation and design justice, bringing you workshops & trainings that break free of old paradigms to liberate process and participants alike while centering those who are historically excluded. At all times we use inquiry and popular education to center the expertise your team brings.
