Centering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to better lives and communities.
We refer to Corporate as large companies, educational institutions, sporting leagues, associations, and organizations.
Equity Audit is a tool that allows for identification of strengths and areas for improvement and prioritization for guided reforms based on data from various stakeholders. This process is data driven and facilitates how to prioritize, change, or initiate policies, practices, and initiatives to advance equitable outcomes.
To discuss how we can support you with next steps for improvement, contact us.
Which policies and practices does your organization reinforce and what purposes does it serve? What data are you collecting? How is data collected and interpreted? Does your company value international experience? Are interviews done by one person or a committee to mitigate bias? What roles do minoritized identities occupy in your company? Are minoritized identities part of the decision-making at all levels? Do you have reporting procedures and processes?
Consulting services offered are tailored to meet your organizational needs to advance EDIcational outcomes.
