DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUITY
Diverse and inclusive companies attract talent, drive innovation, and create brave & compassionate workplace cultures.
Make no mistake: a tremendous body of work is required to make workplaces that are fit for ALL human life (what I call: bravespace workplaces!)
WALK AWAY FROM ONE OF OUR DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION LEADERSHIP SESSIONS HAVING...
- Examined insider and outsider group dynamics.
- Understood the link between group conditioning, privilege, systemic advantage, and unconscious bias.
- Practiced courage, managing reactive shame, and connecting across difference.
- Learned about the tangible benefits of inclusion.
- Elevated your awareness about privilege and bias.
- Explored whiteness and its implications on insider status at work.
This interactive session is open to everyone at work, including white men and women, who often see themselves and are seen as outside of the diversity and inclusion conversations.
One key element of the work lies with having a healthy and representative mix of people at work (diversity) and knowing how to work with the mix (inclusion). “Hoping” for or “desiring” diversity & inclusion is not enough.
Effective partnership across “difference” requires us first to look at ourselves and understand what we believe and why—and then develop the capacity and skills to trek through the messy and hard conversations.
We know that companies and organizations perform best when they are able to activate and utilize the full skills, talents, ideas, and energy of every single employee who works there.
We also know that results in every sense are improved when teams are made up of and proactively include people across all dimensions (ethnicity, gender, race, age and sexual orientation).
WE ALSO PROVIDE A LA CARTE SERVICES SUCH AS:
INCLUSION CULTURE ASSESSMENT
ERG LAUNCH SUPPORT

Why should I work with a white coach/consultant rather than a person of color on my inclusion journey?
Why would you hire a white consultant in the realm of DEI? Good question. I’m not sure you should, but I have thought a lot about this.
I would love to work with you because I believe in my bones that it must be done. I’ve been doing inclusion and equity training, facilitation, and coaching since 1999 (with diverse partners) and it matters less to me that you pick me than that you get going.
Hire your partner or hire me, and let’s dig in. It is time.
