Organizational DEI Consultancy and Development Program

Organizational DEI Consultancy Development Program

The main challenge with any large diverse workforce, agency, or organization that deals with the public good is cultivating a genuine culture of respect among its internal and external stakeholders based on a single unifying DEIA framework. Creating this culture requires an understanding of bias, diversity, and equality and the subtle ways they must be addressed to ensure a fair administration of access and justice, build impactful agency results, and generate meaningful positive change. Anti-racism is not just a conceptual value; it is a concrete goal that will only be achieved when operationalized via practical strategies. Using a five-phase work plan, Elevate’s will work with an appointed DEI advisory council to develop an all-encompassing strategic framework that encourages change within your organizations current DEI practices.

Leadership Development Program

Leadership Development Program & Mentor Enhancement

The year-long Leadership Development Program will focus on how leaders of all levels can aspire to maximize effectiveness with personal and group dynamics, specifically in two areas:

1) Utilizing the latest professional best leadership practices within your industry, and;

2) Developing leaders that are able to grow overall staff performance within their specific day-to-day responsibilities using research-based theory and practical knowledge gained through anecdotal evidence, roleplaying gamification, and further experiential learning.

Creativity & Innovation Through Improv

There are two main goals for this workshop. The first is to foster active listening and smoother communication between colleagues across environments. The second is to experientially learn creative and innovative techniques for succeeding both as a leader and as a team member in dynamic and spontaneously changing circumstances. This is an interactive, hands-on workshop based on adult learning principles and designed to be thought-provoking, engaging, and fun.
