We live in a diverse society rife with systemic and institutionalized barriers to equal and equitable access to justice for people from non-dominant groups. Avoidance of the uncomfortableness of discussing various forms of discrimination -- race, gender, sexual orientation, class, etc. -- in society and the workplace perpetuate and exacerbate patterns which reinforce a winner/loser binary.
Cultural competency and exercised empathy provide a formidable foundation upon which employees, teams, and organizations gain a broader perspective on how to dismantle behaviors such as microagressions and bias in the workplace. Furthermore, courageous conversations help to align and unite individuals across difference and bring out the best in each person.
Create your platform to discuss the importance of embracing diversity, equity, and inclusive practices in your workplace. Options for support include:
- executive coaching
- workshop facilitation
- strategic communication planning
- public speaking engagements
LightWell Coaching + Consulting provides safe spaces for individuals and teams to disentangle from oppressive behaviors and identify solutions to diversity, equity, and inclusion challenges in their midst.
