Audits and Assessments

Reduce systemic injustices while promoting individual and collective healing

Transforming hearts, minds, behaviors, and systems

Can you recognize the obstruction spots in your data and analysis?

Justice-centered, evidence-based analysis, and recommendations that value all voices!  

Our comprehensive equity audit combines quantitative and qualitative data analysis to give a complete picture of your organizational culture through a justice lens. We interrogate systems and practices with a dominant culture and racial equity lens to understand how your system works versus your expectations and perceptions. So, get to the metrics that matter, develop the tools and language to communicate where you are and where you are going, and we will show you how to get there.
