Transforming people, organizations and systems through learning.

Creating more inclusion and equity within an organization is dependent on both learning and action. It requires working internally to learn about ourselves—our multiple identities, values, biases and worldviews—before we can shift outwardly to identify the systems that create privilege for some and disparate outcomes for others. Ultimately, organizations will learn how to apply this knowledge to shape culture and climate, thus motivating action.
