Where can we help you?

Workshops are ideal, stand-alone opportunities to engage in inclusion and diversity discussions.


Consulting provides tailored support for you and your organization ranging from advice about inclusive outreach to policy writing to regular coaching or check-in collaboration.


Facilitation supports groups to express their true creative selves and reach an end goal in record time, or to solve complex problems and conflicts in a supported, respectful way.

Here's What People are Saying

"Cicely is a fantastic facilitator with a thoughtful and sensitive approach to complex intersectional challenges. I've worked closely with them in the anti-racism & anti-oppression space and they have definitely made their mark on Vancouver's conversations about meaningful inclusion. They have been crucial to the growing momentum of anti-oppression work in the city. Without reservation I would recommend them as an intelligent, genuine, process-oriented consultant to support organizations towards a more equitable future."
