DEI Coaching & Consulting
My mission is to help organizations create inclusive cultures where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential. I believe that DEI is not just a moral imperative, but also a business imperative, and that truly diverse & inclusive teams are more innovative, creative, and successful. I help organisations do more than just pay lip service to DEI, but actually build a culture which truly allows those from diverse backgrounds to flourish.
I work with organisations which are truly committed to meaningful change, and who are ready and willing to take full ownership of the DEI work. My role is to support them to identify what isn’t working and where the barriers to inclusion & equity are, and to facilitate them in doing what is needed to transform their workplaces in response to these insights.
My services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each organisation/company. I offer three main roles to help you achieve your diversity, equity, and inclusion goals:
1️⃣ 1-to-1 Coaching for Diverse, Aspiring Leaders
I provide individual coaching sessions for diverse leaders (including women, people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals) who are looking to develop their leadership capacity. My focus is not just on their professional growth, but also on ensuring that they are getting their own needs met. I work with them to address internalised fears, beliefs, and conditioning, as well as supporting them in navigating systemic barriers that may hinder their progress.
2️⃣ Inclusive Leadership Coaching for Senior Leaders
I offer coaching services to C-suite and director-level leaders who are committed to creating more inclusive and equitable workplaces and communities. I help them identify areas where their leadership needs to shift or develop to create a more authentic, safe, and inclusive culture. My coaching sessions are designed to support them in making those changes.
3️⃣ Inclusive Culture Consulting
I provide consulting services to organisations looking to move beyond performative DEI strategies and make genuine workplace culture transformations. I help organisations identify where their current DEI efforts are falling short, and to develop strategies for moving forward which work best for their unique context and team.
My approach is facilitative rather than prescriptive, and I focus on observing dynamics, collecting insight and data, and facilitating better communication. I believe that the best way to create change is to engage in a collaborative and inclusive process that involves all stakeholders, including employees (especially women, people of color, LGBTQ people, etc.), leaders, and other key stakeholders. I do this through a number of channels including:
Gathering feedback directly from employees;
Attending, observing and facilitating meetings;
Observing team interactions & dynamics;
Supporting leadership to identify real, day-to-day barriers to true inclusion, as well as meaningful cultural shifts which seek to overcome those barriers.
Working with individuals and teams to facilitate better dialogue, communication, trust, and relationship-building as well as having difficult conversations
Running training sessions/workshops on topics including unconscious bias, antiracism, allyship and building psychological safety.
