Organizational Change for Social Impact
Our team conducts full spectrum organizational assessments. Through an anonymous and secure interview process and document review, we gauge workplace culture and equity. Based on our analysis, we deliver a report on organizational health and build workstreams tailored to your goals and needs.
What are the best practices for giving and receiving feedback? How can we do what we need to do as leaders while building trust and resilience for hard conversations? We offer leadership coaching in small sessions tailored to ensure that your organization leads and lives by its values.
Employee policies are often the first and last thing team members see. We partner with your organization to write policies that are readable, usable and in alignment with your values to support all your staff needs.
Learning and Development Sessions
Our tailored learning and development sessions are interactive and comprehensive to help you build more a more socially just organization. We will support you with actionable tools and knowledge to engage with difference in a wide range of topics from solidarity across race to trans and non-binary inclusion. We apply a combination of research, liberation pedagogy, and real-life hypotheticals to support you in identifying and filling organizational gaps.
Organizations are comprised of diverse people and backgrounds. Using interactive hypotheticals that integrate numerous gender identities and expressions, thorough information about sexual harassment and the law and culture building, we provide sexual harassment training that meets the reality of the workplace.
This training provides participants with practical tools to locate equity gaps, unlearn fragility and effectively apologize for missteps. Participants learn how to foster a healthy environment for the growing number of underestimated people in our workplaces. Through a tailored combination of field specific content, small and large group discussion, and real time skill building, participants learn new ways to foster equity while honoring difference.
This advanced session is designed for those who have given in depth consideration to how power and privilege shape their workplace experiences. Using organizationally specific scenarios, Shifting Toward Solidarity positions each participant as an enactor, recipient and bystander to interpersonal harm. By mirroring the realities of these positions, Shifting Toward Solidarity creates equitable culture by fostering the resilience and engagement at the core of inclusive organizations.
In this training we cultivate straightforward, easily deployed skills that all team members can use to interrupt inequity. Using research backed methods, we train bystanders to recognize and intervene when witnessing interpersonal harm in the workplace. The resulting cultural shift both encourages targets to seek support, and models ways all team members can productively disrupt cycles of inequity in their organizations.
The demographic realities of the modern workplace often lead to uneven reaction to and implementation of feedback. In Cultivating Healthy Feedback, participants learn how to invite, engage, and operationalize invaluable information from their co-workers, particularly from marginalized messengers. This session provides a strong launchpad for tackling more advanced subject matter, especially for low-trust environments. For all workplaces, this session fosters psychological safety by helping leaders identify personal challenges in metabolizing upward feedback and create nimble systems to mitigate these factors.
Gender shapes every aspect of the employee life cycle. From on-boarding to family leave policies to lactation spaces, this session supports participants in unpacking the most common gaps in LGBTQIA+ organizational belonging. LGBTQIA+ Beyond the Binary provides high level intersectional context of LGBTQIA+ communities in the workplace and pronoun practice to challenge assumptions, create systemic change, and identify the role every team member can play in creating an inclusive culture.
In this session, participants learn about the interplay of different biases and stereotypes. Focusing on the model minority myth and good immigrant tropes, we consider the complexities of intersectionality, power, and oppression in the organizational landscape. Finally, we will create a toolkit for self-empowerment and develop practical strategies for the empowerment of all communities.
