Why We Can’t Overlook Race In The Workplace

We no longer live in a world where it’s okay to stay silent. As a leader in your company, it’s imperative to take authentic and actionable steps to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

Diversity, equity and inclusion across workplaces isn’t about checking off a box.

It’s about being intentional and willing to put in the work to reshape who you are and what you stand for so that everyone has a chance to thrive.

No matter where you’re at in your journey, we’re here to help you reach your goals by helping you hire, retain and empower underrepresented talent

Not only that, but it’s time to be a leader in your field, making sure your company is a place where everyone feels like they are seen, heard and celebrated. Let’s use our power and privilege to make change for those on your team and for those to come. Because after all, allyship is a verb and anti-racism is an everyday practice.

DEI Strategy & Consultation

Quite often, when it comes to understanding and adapting to what underrepresented individuals want and need to succeed — leaders don't know what they don't know. That’s where we come in.

We’re here to provide you with expert insights and best practices to help you build the inclusive workplace you know you need to thrive. We’ll work hand-in-hand with your leadership and wider team to understand your current DEI strategies and best practices.

It’s time to make meaningful strides towards a culture and company that enables all employees to bring their full selves to work and build a business where everyone feels seen, heard and supported.

Our team has much more heightened awareness on what it means to show up more intentionally for each other. I see leadership and managers create a safer space for the team to share their thoughts openly, ensure everyone’s opinion and voice are heard and feel that they matter. The team is more vulnerable about their struggles and learnings with inclusion. In a sense, we’re stronger collaborators that help hold each other accountable to really putting in.
- Tessa Johnston, Chubbies, Sr Manager, People and Development

People keep coming back to this training and I love it! People are getting more vocal that they are loving any training we do because it’s a time they get to really connect to their colleagues. Everyone is getting really excited about it. People were asking good questions and people who are quiet participating and it’s a great social equaliser that draw people out more! PowerToFly are really experts and it lends a lot of credibility. We’re giving people access to experts and it helps. Team members are actually becoming champions and wanting more.

Our listening circles and facilitation are the ideal way to have an impartial subject matter expert come in to host goal oriented conversations based on company needs and provide next steps for your team. It’s time to show your team your support and commitment to having their voices be heard and building an inclusive workplace across the board.

Supporting BIPOC in the Workplace: Getting Started

We know that everyone is at a different place when it comes to their path towards building an anti-racist workplace. While we’d love to advise you on the best resources to invest in based on which stage you’re at, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of self-education as you begin this journey.

If you’re just starting out, we’d recommend the following resources as a primer on systemic racism, what this looks like in the workplace, and how you can help.
