WORKPLACE

INVESTIGATIONS

No workplace is perfect, but sometimes things get too complicated or escalate to the point that outside help is necessary. That's where we come in.

If you are dealing with an employee or customer grievance of discrimination or harassment, we can help. Applying our intersectional, trauma-informed, anti-oppression perspective and utilizing conflict mediation techniques, we can help you resolve the immediate problem at hand, and work toward changing the workplace culture to avoid similar issues in the future.

 

Strategic Planning

Just starting out and need a solid foundation to build on? Time to refresh or re-imagine your mission, vision, and goals, and plan your next great chapter? We can help you:

  • Assess your current position through a lens of intersectional equity

  • Solicit and critically absorb constructive input from internal and external stakeholders

  • Declare your purpose, values, principles, goals

  • Develop an action plan and budget

  • Prepare a fail-safe plan to stay on course when adversity arises

 

Professional Speaking

We deliver trainings, speeches, guest lectures, and inspirational talks to audiences of all kinds -- children, teens, and seniors, attorneys and judges, medical and other licensed professionals, college students and military veterans, corporate executives and faith communities, politicians and grassroots activists, thought-leaders and change-makers.

 

Our message centers on power, privilege and intersectionality, covering a wide range of issues impacting LGBTQ+ people through a critical race, socioeconomic, disability and reproductive justice lens. Every talk is as unique as the audience, but always personal, engaging, dynamic, and inspiring.
