Our Approach

We believe consulting is more than just giving advice. We look for ways to reframe what is holding back opportunities for true equitable experiences. To change words like 'us' and 'them' to collective words like 'we'. To turn 'aha!' moments into a movement. Our relationship-focused approach to consulting aims to make your IDEA efforts intentional, inclusive, and impactful for your organization.

If you have ever asked yourself, 'Who do I want to be? And What do I want my world to be?' We would hope the response would include to be equitable. That you desire to build workplaces where everyone feels welcomed, respected, and able to contribute fully and authentically. We can help you on the journey to do just that. Let's talk.

Our process

The Be Equitable process is unique to your needs.

Great relationships start with communication and we want to get to know the vision of IDEA for your organization

There's opportunities to be unlocked and stories to uncover from your people, policies, processes, and programs

Knowing what a more equitable future at your organization can look like will help push the work forward

The vision tells us where we are going, the plan tells us how we will get there together

We go far when we take our learning, preparation, and planning and turn it into action

Tracking your progress keeps you accountable and lets you know how you are doing on the journey

Creating an equitable organization is possible with continuous practice, partnership, and brave leadership
