 August Meeting Agenda

 

Description

In a world where action speaks louder than words, how do you ensure your organization walks the talk of diversity, equity and inclusion? Join Amanda and Laura, organizational equity & justice consultants, as they dive deep into the transformative realm of equity auditing, where insights meet action. Just as regular and continuous self-reflection is important for personal development, engaging in critical, in-depth, and meaningful analysis of our organizations is essential to keeping up with worker and community expectations of a commitment to equitable impact.

Amanda and Laura will spill the tea by revealing harmful workplace/school patterns that prevent revolutionary culture shifts, while also sharing proven systems-change practices, discovered through transformative equity analysis. Analysis can include policy/procedure/practice review (employee handbooks, hiring, recruitment, website accessibility, conflict and harm intervention), programmatic updates (curriculum, structure, community engagement support, (re)branding), environmental scans (social media/website, accessibility, gender inclusivity, representation, culturally relevant physical spaces and content), and mission/vision/values (re)development and/or alignment assessment.
