DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION SOLUTION
We prefer to go beyond the one-and-done workshop model and partner with organizations over time
Organizations that cultivate diverse teams see a
40 percent increase in innovation (HBR, 2019).
BECOMING CULTURALLY INTELLIGENT DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION PROGRAM
Invest in your entire organization—including senior leaders and every contributor—to ensure that you are upholding standards of not just representation, but inclusion. Collaborate over twelve months with us to build a Becoming Culturally Intelligent Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Program.
We will help guide your organization in demonstrating culturally responsive behaviors through helping you build a successful DEI Committee/Team, using our 3-step process of Discovery, Training & Consulting Services, and Program Assessment.
Our holistic solution allows your organization to select the number of trainings and consultation services that meet your needs, on a flexible timeline.
How CITC’s DEI Solution is Different Than Other Models
We are not satisfied with the one-and-done DEI workshop model; true diversity and inclusion work takes time. We honor this process.
Our model is data-driven and time-tested for organizational success.
We will leave your organization better than we found it.
We empower the members of your organization to continue DEI work into the future.
