Are you overwhelmed by DEI with no real understanding of the distinctions among the three concepts but far too embarrassed to say that aloud? Do you sometimes worry that you will say the wrong thing and offend your employees?
Are you worried that your Diversity and Inclusion efforts thus far are misapplied, ill-focused, underwhelming and perhaps insincere?
Have you recently executed a racial equity pledge or otherwise committed to a greater commitment toward advancing racial equity at work but are not sure where to start, how to gain internal alignment, and establish rigor and impact around this work?
Have you gleaned, via your employee engagement surveys or DEI audits, that there is work you need to do to deepen engagement with employees of different races, ethnicities, and cultures and are looking for a partner to help bring clarity to this work?
Are you looking for an advisor to come alongside of you to help evolve and mature your overall strategy and/or execution of racial equity in the workplace?

Every flower in a garden has a history. Some come from seeds, others from bulbs. Some were planted elsewhere, uprooted and re-homed. Some were blown in by the wind. What determines how they all thrive in a collective, common space? Two things primarily: 1) How they are cared for by the gardener and 2) The condition of the soil in which they are planted.

This race and inequity simulation is an interactive experience that helps your team understand the structural conditions giving rise to the need for racial equity. It is a good first step for people unaware of structural inequality and a support tool for those who want a deeper understanding of historic institutions that required the oppression of Black Americans. We will experience life under the federal policies that created structural inequities--property ownership and education are just two among many areas affected--and how these policies increase current inequity in communities of color, and impact our society overall.

Like you, we are interested in cultivating a commitment to DEI, not just perfunctory compliance with it. DEI is a workforce and organizational strategy. At its core, it is a transformational undertaking. We define transformation as bringing into existence tomorrow that which does not exist today. Therefore DEI is not a finite program or an initiative. It is a decision to fundamentally alter what you have traditionally believed and presumed, about inviting and embedding "difference" into your culture, and becoming accountable for the cumulative impact of not having done so earlier. Toward these ends, we partner with you in furtherance of all of it.
