Our Services

In the U.S., all workplace cultures are built around and in support of white supremacist values and fears. This translates into the racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, and xenophobia that plague our organizations and the rest of society. It takes deliberate and sustained effort and tangible shifts in power and privilege to combat these norms and to create something equitable in its place. This process is deeply uncomfortable. It requires a commitment to deep self-reflection and examination, and to amplifying the experiences, voices, and leadership of those who are historically silenced and harmed.

We will help you navigate these challenges, lean into your growth edges, and imagine an anti-racist future for your organization. It will be hard, and we will do it together.

1:1 COACHING

Fighting white supremacy and all the inequity that comes with it is hard, and we cannot do it alone. Sometimes having a personal champion in your corner offering advice, support, skills practice, and carefully chosen resources to meet your immediate needs is just what you need to level up in your own DEI and anti-racism work. Whether you're just starting out or further down the road, we can help.

ORGANIZATIONAL EQUITY ASSESSMENT + REPORT

Take the guesswork out of your DEI and anti-racism efforts. We'll give you a clear snapshot of where you are today in terms of equity using online surveys and virtual focus groups. We will provide a comprehensive report with data crunched through an intersectional lens, our observations of your workplace culture, and recommendations for how to move forward equitably from here.

EQUITY TRAINING SERIES

Equity in action begins with knowledge, mindfulness, and a readiness to change. We teach from principles of cultural humility, anti-oppression, and hands-on learning intended to inspire curiosity, compassion, and action.

 

One-off trainings are mostly ineffective and a waste of your money. Training series habitualize learning and excite your staff to make conversations about equity a part of their regular work.

MANAGER TEAM COACHING

Your organization must galvanize its leadership’s commitment and investment to equity. We will work to deepen managers’ capacity to identify and address structural inequities, troubleshoot issues as they arise, strengthen leadership's stamina to name and dismantle white supremacy in the workplace, and offer inclusive leadership tools to shape a more equitable workplace culture.

FOUNDATIONAL DEI COURSE FOR YOUR WHOLE STAFF

We at Just Roots are big fans of taking a comprehensive approach to workplace DEI and anti-racism work. Part of that is making sure that everyone on your staff is on the same page about some foundational elements of workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our popular online course, Fostering Equity: Inclusion at Every Level, our self-paced online course with 6 modules taught by expert faculty, does the trick.

POLICY REFRESH

Create a new status quo. We will review your policies and practices, measuring them against our Equity Rubric. We'll recommend changes to bridge fairness gaps and make them accessible and useful to historically marginalized employees. We can also train your staff  to conduct this policy audit themselves, to build your internal capacity for long-term, sustainable change.
