You are a dynamic leader working to develop a more equitable and inclusive organizational culture.
You recognize this is a challenging though rewarding process and know that you can do it better, faster – with the right help. You have limited bandwidth and have seen equity initiatives fizzle out due to staff feeling overwhelmed and under-resourced. You know that asking for support is how you can demonstrate your commitment to creating sustainable, enduring change.
Commitments for Organizational Change
Check out the videos below to get a sense of how we work together to center diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice from the start. When I collaborate with your team, we will start by establishing these shared understandings and commitments.
FACT: Unequal systems exist in our organization.
Your team and I will commit to understanding and examining how unequal systems manifest in our workplace. (From Got Green.)
FACT: There is a power differential in the room, both hierarchical and social.
Your team and I will commit to valuing lived experience as much as or more than hierarchical power during these conversations.
FACT: Meetings are for setting strategy and moving forward, not just professional development.
Your team and I will commit to learning outside the meetings, then bringing that learning into the meetings to inform our strategy.
FACT: The reactions of dominant folks learning about the experiences of nondominant folks in the workplace is not the focus of our efforts.
Your team and I will commit to centering the experiences of nondominant populations in the workplace.
FACT: This work takes time and resources.
Your team and I will commit to continually advocating with leaders for the appropriate and sustainable resourcing for this work, both direct and indirect expenses.
Your organization’s journey begins now.
