Here's some questions people are often curious about.
The good news: we actually love to focus on small- to mid-sized organizations, so you're probably just the right size! The key is to find the material that works for your specific team, and it's our job to find out what works for you.
Every organization sometimes needs to first figure out what they don't know before they can define what they do need to know. Most organizations start with our DEI Assessments, [link] which aim to clear the fog around what your team needs to “do”. Together we can identify your unique needs and build material around your particular challenges. It all starts with that first conversation.
Every organization needs to have a baseline understanding of DEI issues, and the best time to talk about them is before a crisis. You can set your organization up for success by having the conversation before it's a "problem".
You’re not alone. DEI issues can feel scary for a lot of individuals who worry they'll "say the wrong thing" in training. Our work is to begin to understand our own biases and perceptions, not to call others out on their own. We all have, and will, make mistakes, but we can learn to do better and have the hard conversations. No one is going to be perfect!
We believe that organizational culture starts at the top and that leaders, by definition, set an example for the entire team. Accordingly, the more participation is involved from the executive team, the better. We also offer private executive coaching and leadership training if that's a better fit for your organization. Talk to us to find out what conversation is needed, and with whom.
Every group is unique, and part of our initial assessment is understanding the current makeup of your organization and where the team members are in terms of "readiness". We shape our work around the needs of your team, so you’re always getting a custom fit.
