Culture By Design, Not Default

We understand how important the bottom line is to organizations. More innovation drives productivity which leads to more profit and more impact. However, most organizations underestimate the largest influence in creating an effective bottom line: a communicative company culture that allows all employees to show up fully.

Your organization is a work in progress.

So is your team.

We know that when DEIB initiatives and professional development programming are managed in silos, they are ineffective. Instead, we take a holistic approach to culture design and transformation by blending DEIB strategy with professional development and rooting it in coaching to build strong teams and skilled leadership. 

Culture spans your entire organization. Our services cover every angle.

Gain a deep understanding of how your day-to-day processes impact your employees’ experiences through our comprehensive assessments. Develop a 360 degree culture strategy with the support of expert consultation. Grow your cultural experiences together with tailored professional development. Sustain your work by empowering leaders through group and one-on-one coaching.

Culture Conversations

Signature Events 

Our versatile Culture Conversations Series is designed to help organizations communicate and collaborate more effectively and design equitable and innovative cultures across countries, functional groups, and intersections of diversity. Culture Conversations spark discussions with the power to open minds, deepen connection, build trust and transform culture.

Intentional Integration

Jumping into diversity recruitment, signing up for a single webinar, or booking a one-time workshop for your team sounds like a good start.

But after the hour-long presentation, your team leaves the knowledge on the table, and your new recruit realizes the culture they walked into isn’t as welcoming or nurturing as they had hoped.

So how do organizations create a sustainable culture that allows every person to show up authentically?

Through intentional integration that combines culture, systems, and processes to develop, promote, and maintain the diverse talent you attract.

We take an in-depth analysis of policies and procedures as well as current leadership habits. By understanding what is in current play within an organization, we can spot any inequitable holes and develop recommendations to fill them now and prevent them in the future.
