For individuals looking to change the way they work, or managers who want to learn essential skills that lead to a more supportive, thriving environment for staff and community, coaching is a key tool to create meaningful change.
Policy Writing & Implementation
Whether it's an anti-bullying policy for a high school or community guidelines for a workplace, we can help you draft, construct and implement a policy that suits both your ethos and practical requirements. With the policy created, we’ll then work with you to share it with your staff and community members so it can be seamlessly, effectively implemented, using various workshops and facilitation techniques.
Job Description Editing
A big part of a more equitable and inclusive workplace is ensuring the outreach and recruitment process sets people up for success. We tailor language and soften barriers to make sure your job postings appeal to an array of applicants.
Diversity & Inclusion Auditing
The audit process surveys for identities, experiences, and more to help identify challenges and areas for growth within an organization. It is a thorough evaluation, which results in a detailed report and tangible calls to action.
Digital Media Scan
We scan your website, social media platforms, and any other digital interfaces such as user apps, for language and content that highlight learning opportunities. We then provide a report full of suggested alternatives and further self-guided learning materials. Based on our findings, you may choose to book workshops or coaching sessions to further elevate your inclusive digital media proficiency.
