Assess

Our comprehensive and targeted diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) assessments help you understand your areas of challenge and opportunity and to determine where to invest your time and resources.

Targeted Assessments

Surface new insights and opportunities to advance specific areas of your organization with data-informed, intersectional, and security-tight targeted assessments.

Policy, Process, & Program

We can assess policies, processes, and programs to help you cultivate an affirming workplace culture and positive employee experiences.

Product, Service, & Experience

Whether you offer a product, a service, or an experience (virtual or in-person), we can enhance what you sell by identifying gaps, biases, and inequities to minimize technical, human, and reputational risks.

Marketing, Media, & Communication

Through a comprehensive review of your current plans, design assets, advertising copy, social media, etc., we'll pinpoint any areas for improvement and help you develop strategies for inclusive and impactful media.

Comprehensive Assessments

We help you understand your organization’s demographics and people’s experiences of bias, exclusion, and inequity. Our comprehensive assessment can incorporate quantitative, qualitative, and supplementary data into a findings report.

DEI Surveys

Our quantitative DEI survey analysis allows you to understand your company’s diversity in big and small pictures. We pair DEI sentiment questions with a robust demographic question set so you can understand people’s needs and experiences.We provide full support through the surveying process: survey design, data collection management, and communications from pre-launch to post-survey.

Interviews or Focus Groups

The issues we're trying to understand involve lived experiences that cannot be captured by a number. Through a series of confidential 25-minute, open-ended, in-depth interviews, we capture the human stories and lived experiences to ‘breathe life’ into the survey data. The interviews are open to all team members and are easy to schedule.

Supplementary Reviews

We supplement the survey and interviews with a targeted review of your organizational policies, processes, and programs to help us understand where bias, exclusion, and inequity live within your systems. Areas include recruitment, hiring, development, and retention.

Do you do work just around gender diversity?

No! We strive to make better things and make things better for everyone. We do this by using an intersectional analysis in all of our work, and we account for the full range of identities that people may have.

What kind of organizations do you work with?

Staying true to our ethos is very important to us. Therefore, we only work with organizations that we believe have identified some of their gaps, are open and creative, have trust in us, and are committed to change.

Is diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work just about human resources (HR) or hiring practices?

No! DEI impacts every aspect of an organization. This, of course, means it involves HR and People Leaders’ work and expands to areas such as inclusive product design, for example.

We have a committee doing diversity, equity, inclusion stuff. Isn’t that enough?

This is a great start! Are the people on your committee being compensated for their time and labour? People must be compensated for DEI efforts as the quickest way to create more inequity is by asking people to do unpaid labour.

We have a DEI lead or a Chief Diversity Officer (CDO). Isn’t that enough?

It’s great to have a fully-funded team of people leading these efforts! With that said, we find that when someone’s not directly on an organization’s payroll, they can be more direct and honest. Too often, the most seasoned DEI practitioners are not as empowered as they should be in their role and can find themselves staying silent on challenging issues because they fear retribution.
