INCLUSIVE SOLUTIONS

THAT CREATE ACCOUNTABILITY

Our work revolves around three guiding principles: awareness, alignment, and accountability.

AWARENESS

To facilitate the introspective work that helps to bring about desired change, we encourage vulnerability and build upon it as a position of strength. Global Engagement operates in a spirit of openness, respect, and inclusion, with the highest standards of ethical integrity.

ALIGNMENT

When each member of an organization believes that they are valued for their unique contributions and individual attributes, this leads to more significant impact, profitability, and ultimately a better quality of life. In this partnership, we help organizations create approaches to DEI that align with their core values and the values of their employees and stakeholders.

ACCOUNTABILITY

What gets measured gets done. The DEI work in organizations is essential but often does not rise to the level of urgency until there is a pressing litigation issue at hand (e.g., discrimination or retaliation complaint, etc.).  Having systems of accountability to move from a state of “in limbo” to taking action and following through advances your DEI vision and achieves your DEI strategic goals.  GEC facilitates the clarity, co-planning, and follow-through to partner with Leaders and Executives who often do not have someone that can hold their “feet to the fire” when setting strategic DEI priorities.  Our Consultants will firmly provide the accountability necessary to develop and execute your DEI strategy successfully.

  • Provides effective change management and strategic communication tools to have difficult conversations related to DEI. 

  • Improves organizational policies, practices, and behaviors to promote inclusion. 

  • Improves outreach to employees, stakeholders, and the community by Organizational Leaders becoming champions for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • Can be measured quantitatively and qualitatively to show improvement in an organization’s bottom line.

LEADERSHIP, PARTNERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

Creating a Bias Conscious and Inclusive professional culture begins with top leaders demonstrating a commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with a sense of urgency. The Leader’s journey requires focusing inwards to honestly confront individual bias, and demonstrate empathy and advocacy for staff with less power and privilege.  GEC Consultants helps to create space for Leaders to bravely assess their cultural and emotional intelligence and discuss strategies to promote a culture that welcomes and values diverse perspectives and unique contributions.
