The Consultation Process
Gathering the Data: One of the most difficult obstacles to building an inclusive workplace is diagnosing the problem. Part of any of Jamie's short-term or long-term consultation, then, is an anonymous Organizational Inclusiveness Survey (OIS) designed specifically to meet your organization's needs. Following the OIS, Jamie conducts in-depth interviews with strategic members of your team to get a more complete portrait of your inclusiveness successes and growth points.
The Inclusiveness Report: Then, based on the OIS and interview data, Jamie will prepare a comprehensive Inclusiveness Report that highlights your organizations strengths and growth points in building an inclusive environment.
Responsive Trainings: From there, Jamie offers a variety of trainings to help meet your organizations specific professional development needs based on the Inclusiveness Report.
Evaluation and Response: Finally, Jamie meets with key members of your team to evaluate the consultation process and to determine the best steps going forward for building an inclusive work environment after the consultation process.
The Business2Community Initiative
The Business2Community Initiative is an effort to build stronger connections between you and the community you serve through the lens of diversity and inclusiveness programming. Any business that hires Jamie for consulting or training services may choose a school in its local community at which Jamie will work at no extra cost. This allows the business to simultaneously receive high-quality diversity and inclusiveness consulting and training while making a tax-deductible donation to a local school community.
