Mission Driven. Evidence Based. Results Focused.
Our mission is to translate the strongest evidence into practical and effective approaches for achieving true equity, deep diversity, partnership, and full inclusion for the benefit of organizations, their members, and the people they serve.
Equity and Inclusion Services
Inclusive Climate Assessment and Audit
Our assessments yield meaningful feedback and actionable recommendations. We go beyond the usual organizational assessment to get at the underlying issues and the core factors that truly impact inclusion, diversity and equality for the organization, employees, and the people they serve.
Education and Training
We provide evidence-driven live (in-person) and online learning experiences that give learners the insights, understanding, knowledge and skills they need to promote true equity, deep diversity and full inclusion. Our content and our learning process are fully responsive to the complex body of evidence on what works, what doesn’t and what makes things worse.
We also provide “clean-up” training for organizations that have had unexpected negative outcomes from prior training approaches.
Consulting and Advising
We provide data-driven, sustainable, and effective recommendations to optimize organizational impact. We review formal and informal policies and procedures for vulnerability to bias leakage. After completing climate assessments, we are available to partner with organizations at every step of the change process.
Evaluations. Interventions. Solutions.
We are passionate and deeply experienced professionals and researchers with the knowledge and skills to accelerate full inclusion and real equity.
We Saw a Big Problem
The massive body of scientific evidence on creating true equity and inclusion is dense, complex, and hard to interpret without deep expertise. We noticed that, as a result, too many well intended D&I trainers and consultants misinterpret or misapply the evidence. At best these efforts have no effect and at worst they do harm.
We Had to Act
We formed to translate the evidence into positive impact and action. We are a team of equity and inclusion scientists, partnered with experienced D&I organizational leaders. We recognize that creating just, equitable and fully inclusive environments is essential to organizational effectiveness and ultimately organizational survival.
We Saw a Gap
Looking at the landscape many well intended D&I trainers and unconscious bias “experts” misinterpreting or misapplying what’s actually know is why we formed. We will help you translate the evidence into positive impact and action.
Creating real diversity, inclusion, and equity is a tricky challenge and common-sense ideas often do not work. As a result, many current approaches fail – and often may make things worse.
This Is Important
Achieving real inclusion and equity is imperative – and we all need to get it right. Leveraging the strongest evidence and most effective tools is the best strategy to reaching D&I goals.
How We Do It
Because of our unique expertise in research, deep experience in strategy and implementation we uniquely partner with you to create customized assessments and offer industry-specific evidence based strategies and solutions.
