Our cross cultural engagement and inclusion services assist communities in responding to the increasingly diversified national demographics, particular cultural trends regionally, and national movements grounded in anti-racism. We seek to assist communities in understanding the particular meaning of diversity in their context and develop strategic experiments that will develop their cross-cultural engagement and fluency.
Creating a diverse and inclusive community happens only with intention. What does it mean to be intentional? It means to have a holistic approach to decisions that are made for the community. One of the ways to be intentional with regards to diversity is creating space for conversations about privilege, whiteness and race. Without these conversations, led by skilled facilitators, meaningful and lasting inclusion and diversity will be difficult to achieve. The process is part of the product and working toward an inclusive vision.
