Take the Building Blocks Self-Assessment

Aspiring to be an Equity Change Agent? Keen on addressing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEI&J) systematically within your organization?

Our Building Block Self-Assessment is designed to evaluate your current stance, strengths, and targets in creating an anti-racist organization. Based on your results, our training team crafts a program tailored to your budget and organizational needs.

Identify the Right Equity Path and Timeline for Your Organization

Post completion of the Building Blocks Assessment tool, you’ll gain insights into your likely objectives and the type of consultant required. The next step is to understand the nature of work a consultant will undertake and realistically assess the duration it might take.

Our DEI&J Toolkit outlines a progression of stages organizations typically go through in this journey. Recognizing where your organization currently stands on these stages enables you to gauge the time needed for the subsequent steps. For deep organizational change, a five-year timeline is often reasonable.
