You’re not like other businesses or nonprofits. You’re committed to social change AND you want a growing, thriving company. You care, and you know that your drive to make the world better is the pathway to success. If we all worked with such integrity, we’d have a healthy economy, we’d be regenerating the environment, and people would treat each other with respect.
You’re building something beautiful, but this combination of purpose + rigor is hard!
If you’re leading a new company, you’re focused on building everything - how do you have the time to focus on diversity and inclusion initiatives while still keeping your eye solidly on the bottom line? Have you experienced diversity and inclusion workshops or trainings that have been thought provoking or engaging, but left you with no real plan or skills on how to build a diverse and innovative team? Further, have you tried to implement these resources only to find that your company culture does not support the changes and not everyone feels included?
If you’ve been in business a while: are you feeling the struggles of team conflict? Is your team overworked and burned out? Are you feeling the draining, demoralizing effects of over-managing and micromanaging? And secretly: do you not know how to effectively invest in all your team members, regardless of ethnicity and gender?
Here’s the secret:
Your diversity and inclusion strategy will not be successful if you do not design your culture and systems to support it.
We help you build company culture at the intersection of high performance, diversity, inclusion and soul.
Using our unique-to-you, interactive Empowerment Model, we help you outline and implement a strategy that is clear and scaleable. You and your team will learn specific diversity and inclusion strategies AND effective tools for building a company culture that is aligned, effective, and a place where people are excited to work.
“I had the good fortune to work with Nikki, and walked away so impressed that I would recommend her to anyone looking for help tackling diversity, equity, and inclusion issues within their organization. Part of Nikki’s brilliance is her understanding that organizational culture and program strategies can’t be isolated. You have to tackle both, and she is absolutely capable of doing so. I would (and regularly do) recommend her to anyone hoping to take on this sort of work, whether in the NGO world, government, or the private sector.”
