Learning and Development
Nothing that we do is designed to check a box. We work with you to develop customized learning sessions that set your team up for success. Each of our training topics can be designed to fit the unique needs of your organization.
Understanding Interpersonal and Systems Bias
Whether in interpersonal interactions, or during the hiring and promotions process we help organizations understand how bias manifests, its impact when it does, and techniques for prevention and response.
We provide tools and best practices for combating bias in the interview process so that your team can objectively evaluate candidates from diverse backgrounds, whether during an interview, in writing feedback, or in conducting a debrief.
Sometimes it’s hard to know how to best support our colleagues from underrepresented backgrounds in the workplace. We discuss techniques for supporting people across difference and building a more inclusive working environment.
Expanding Your Inbound Pipeline of Talent
From recruiting to onboarding, every step of the hiring pipeline is an opportunity to engage or lose a candidate. We share best practices and approaches for ensuring your hiring practices engage diverse talent.
We present core concepts on growth mindset and reframe how teams understand “feedback” to promote and culture of organizational learning and employee development. We help participants understand how bias can impact feedback and offer concrete tools to de-bias feedback and concrete tools to better give and receive feedback.
Bias in Communication
We examine how interpersonal bias manifests itself in the ways team members and leaders communicate and impacts who is seen, leveraged, and promoted. We give concrete tools to help participants hear and recognize the contributions of colleagues across diverse backgrounds.
The number one factor that influences an employee’s engagement at work is their relationship with their manager. We offer a range of people management training, including a first-time manager bootcamp, tailored modules and a peer support cohort model that’s both practical and scalable -- all using and equity and inclusion lens.
