Equity | Diversity | Inclusion
Centering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to better lives and communities.
Work with multiple stakeholders to promote and enhance Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) to better serve the needs of racialized, minoritized, and disenfranchised identities and communities using a community-oriented place-based approach.
To provide interdisciplinary and holistic support to individuals, organizations, and institutions to develop, enhance, and mobilize their potential for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) via education, training, and research, collaborative partnerships, and innovative leadership.
Why Invest in EDI Training?
It is no longer enough to be welcoming. Institutions and companies need to be anti-oppressive.
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) training is about elevating the culture of your institution/company with intentionality. It is transitioning from being diverse to inclusive and equitable where people are valued for who they are and their contributions. This leads to innovative thinking, increased employee engagement, retention, and productivity, and overall more profits and an improved reputation/brand.
