Who We Are
Since 1984, we have unapologetically challenged systems of oppression and pushed the boundaries of what it means to be inclusive.
Proudly Black women-owned and -led, we have unflinchingly guided hundreds of companies and organizations to reject the status quo, interrogate inequities, and dismantle unjust systems.
We are relentlessly shepherding a new era of bold, fearless leadership that centers the experiences of the marginalized to create justice in unjust spaces.
A world where the inherent humanity of all people is revered and we own and act on our collective power, wisdom, and knowledge to center equity and justice in all we do.
We center those who are most harmed by injustice and oppression; advance thought leadership that supports DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion and justice); and partner with committed organizations to build equitable and just systems inside the workplace and beyond.
After nearly 40 years and hundreds of clients, we know what doesn’t work to create organizational DEIJ transformation:
- One-off DEIJ efforts made without a strategy
- Compliance focused trainings to use up a budget and check a box
- One-size fits all training and education that try to cater to everyone
- Unengaged senior leadership
- Focusing on ineffectual metrics or things that don’t matter
When we partner with you, we strive to deliver lasting, transformational change through:
- Providing sustainable, supported journeys that combine research-based strategy and experiential learning
- Customizing education to meet people where they are, but not leave them there – we deliver developmental learning that builds competence and confidence
- Engaging and empowering senior leadership to have the tools, skills, and knowledge to successfully lead change within diverse teams
- Prioritizing IMPACT over intent – we help you create results and measure what really matters
You are assigned a dedicated Client Success Account Manager who is with you every step of the way. They help with everything from kick-off calls and scheduling, to coordination, progress updates, and getting you any answers you need.
Your team might also consist of dedicated instructional designers, facilitators with experience in your industry, and our extensive lineup of data and strategy experts.
We follow a justice blueprint:
Terminology and trends within DEIJ change often, but the core foundation of the work has stayed true. There are four key foundational areas that need to be interrogated to create an organization centered in justice, equity, and belonging. Everything centers around your “why.” What is motivating and inspiring you to undertake the challenge and complexity of DEIJ?
From there, we look at the level of engagement and involvement of senior leaders, board members, and key stakeholders. Do they have the understanding, the skills, and tools they need to lead transformational change and address resistance that arises?
The term “power redistribution” often makes people nervous. It really means – whose voices are lifted up? Who gets a seat at the table? Who is empowered to make change? And – how is it funded?
Transparency builds trust. That’s why consistently presenting the metrics that matter, whether they are positive or negative, is a key part of the blueprint.
What does fearless accountability mean? It means accepting responsibility for harm. It means recognizing and prioritizing impact over intent. It means centering justice and embracing change.
