Training & Coaching for Organizations
Our Approach to Social Transformation
We believe in consensual social transformation. This means we don’t tell you what you should think, we ask what your values are and how you want to live by them. We use participatory research and emergent design to craft transformative learning spaces. We are rooted in histories of liberation and oppression. We believe that the present moment cannot be viewed in isolation if we wish to move towards a desirable future. Each of us exist at the intersections of many identities and possibilities, and through storytelling, empathy, and values-building, we can create more equitable, enjoyable, and effective organizations and communities.
What We Do
We offer interactive diversity, equity, and inclusion trainings, equity audits, and personal coaching for mission driven organizations, teams and cohorts, and educational programs. Our hands on approach is informed by the reality that no two situations are identical; however, similar problems surrounding equity and inclusion, communication and power dynamics arise in almost all organizations. We partner with you to understand where your organization is in your growth process and to identify inflection points for you to move towards the culture you desire. We do not believe in shame, blame, or deficit thinking; we apply a strengths-based lens to understand what makes your organization special and how to amplify the cultural elements that are working well while minimizing the factors that contribute to an uncomfortable or oppressive climate. We customize a package of trainings, evaluation, and coaching to equip you with the skills you need to chart your own path forward. Revenue from client services helps to sustain our community programs.
