Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that EDI consulting is not a one-size-fits-all approach, as each organization has unique needs and challenges. We foster a relationship where collaboration with our clients impacts the organization’s culture  to be one that values diversity, promotes equity, and fosters inclusion. Our role is to help organizations assess, develop, implement, and sustain strategies and initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As aspects of EDI consulting include:

Assessment and Diagnosis:

We begin by assessing an organization’s current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This involves conducting surveys, interviews, and data analysis to understand the organization’s strengths and weaknesses in these areas.

Strategy Development:

Based on the assessment, we work with the organization to develop a customized EDI strategy. This strategy outlines specific goals, initiatives, and action plans to improve diversity and create a more inclusive workplace.

Training and Education:

We provide training and educational programs to employees at all levels of the organization. This training can cover topics like unconscious bias, microaggressions, cultural competency, and inclusive leadership.

Policy and Procedure Review:

We review and recommend changes to HR policies, procedures, and practices to ensure they are aligned with EDI goals. This may involve changes related to hiring practices, promotions, and workplace accommodations.

Leadership Development:

EDI consulting often includes leadership development programs to help senior executives and managers become champions of diversity and inclusion. This may involve coaching, mentoring, or leadership workshops.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs):

We can assist in establishing and supporting Employee Resource Groups or affinity groups that provide a platform for employees with shared identities or interests to connect and advocate for inclusion.

Data and Metrics:

We help organizations establish data collection and reporting systems to track progress toward EDI goals. Measuring diversity metrics, such as representation and pay equity, is a crucial part of the process.

Cultural Change and Inclusivity:

We work to foster a culture of inclusivity within the organization. This involves addressing not only structural changes but also changing attitudes and behaviors among employees.

External Partnerships and Community Engagement:

We help organizations engage with external partners, such as community organizations or industry groups, to promote diversity and inclusion in the broader community.

Sustainability and Accountability:

We help organizations establish mechanisms for accountability and ongoing monitoring of EDI efforts. This ensures that progress is sustained over the long term.

Legal and Compliance Considerations:

We also assist organizations in understanding and complying with relevant laws and regulations related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
