We integrate into your team, comprehend your unique needs, and create a customized action plan. We employ executive coaching, Change management processes, and systems thinking to foster emotionally safe growth.
Metrics & Tracking
It's not enough to know what the issues and areas of opportunity are, but how to fix them and fill the gaps. Through actionable steps, and metrics we help you track, you'll be actively creating a culture that is inclusive and equitable for all employees.
We dive deep into your business systems and policies, identify improvement areas, and guide you to make equity and accessibility-centered adjustments.
Communication & Implementation
Communication goes hand in hand with implementing a new strategy. If internal and external stakeholders aren't taking this journey with you, implementing your new strategy across departments and showing an intentional commitment to DEI will be difficult. We ensure that all stakeholders feel included and not blindsided as we navigate through the implementation process.
Revision & Maintenance
We serve as subject matter experts and partners to ensure that your company's new DEI strategy is a living, actionable plan. We believe in long-lasting and sustainable change, so we'll work with you to review metrics and maintain your new strategies for as long as you need.
"Dr. Sam applies a range of gifts and skills to her work as a knowledgeable, meticulously organized and thoughtfully prepared guide for your deep reflections and hard conversations. She offers encouragement, is an excellent active listener and distiller of your ideas/thoughts/questions/concerns. She leaves ample space for you and your team to share and ask, while keeping you on a path moving forward toward your collectively articulated goals. Dr. Sam's portfolio of tools and approach to getting to the core of an organization and working our way, together, back out to reflect and revise was immediately impressive to us - and just flexible enough to honor her approach but also nimbly customize the content and curriculum to really address Scholarship Plus' weak points. She is incredibly easy to talk to, and maintains a striking balance between encouraging and solid in her role, like all the best teachers. Our entire team was sorry to say 'bye' at our last session — an already close-knit team, Dr. Sam helped us grow even closer, more candid and vulnerable, and model the kind of safe, brave and supportive space we aspire to. We are so grateful Dr. Sam is doing what she is doing, and that she offers ways to keep doing the work together!"
