Show me better than you can tell me
What if diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts were proactive and embedded in every task and interaction at work? We approach diversity, equity, and inclusion as the critical business practice it is, designing strategies that drive change at a structural level while equipping individuals to create more inclusive cultures every day. Our Success Uncensored Values guide these following principles.
We believe in impact — it is the shaping of diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizations that change the world, and the impact we can have by helping clients FOCUS on what will effect the most change within their organizations.
Follow the Data not the familiar
Effective diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies are rooted and grounded in quantitative and qualitative data and informed by thoughtful research. We let data define effective practices, use research to guide our approach, and measure the effectiveness of our work.
Honor What Makes Each Client Unique
While several companies face similar challenges, each has unique strengths and areas of opportunity embedded in their growth plan. The context, culture, and norms of an organization matter — they inform our understanding of barriers and choice of strategies. Rather than applying general best practices, we work with each client to identify and design the strategies and tools that will be most effective for their organization.
Value Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Creating diverse and inclusive teams is both a moral and a business imperative. Treating employees fairly while empowering everyone to do their best work is the right thing to do beyond increasing your profit margin. It’s also critical to building effective, high-performing teams. Just as we believe diversity and inclusion will make our clients stronger, we know that bringing together people who come from different backgrounds, have different life experiences, and hold different perspectives makes our own team better. This is what an inclusive company looks like.
Embrace a Growth Mindset
We believe that people and organizations can grow and change IF they are committed. To foster a growth mindset internally and with our clients, we encourage setting bold and challenging goals, taking thoughtful risks, communicating openly about mistakes and failures, and giving honest, candid feedback.
We partner with clients to embed diversity, equity, and inclusion into EVERY aspect of their organizations, from the systems and processes that shape their workforce to the employees and leaders who bring their culture to life.
Training & People Development
We drive impact at the human level by designing strategies, workshops, and programs that motivate employees and leaders to create diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplaces where people feel like they belong.
Empowering your workforce to be the change they want to see
We work side by side with clients to drive accountability from the top while supporting employee-led and grassroots initiatives. We provide training, coaching, and consulting to equip your workforce to live “success uncensored”— from executives and managers to individual contributors — with the skills they need to create inclusive, equitable environments where people feel like they belong producing a higher performing teams.
Ally oop Workshop
Ally oop— We take the basketball term and incorporate it into the continuous practice of advancing a culture of inclusion through intentional, positive, and conscious actions that benefit others. This is one of the most impactful ways individuals can contribute to equitable, inclusive organizations. Our training equips participants with a framework and tools to be an effective ally in the workplace through everyday interactions, in-the-moment interventions, and ongoing advocacy.
Unconscious Bias Workshop
Research indicates that compliance-oriented unconscious bias training doesn’t make a difference. We studied what really drives change, and designed a new approach that actually works. Our trainings help people understand how unconscious bias undermines diversity and inclusion, effective decision-making, collaboration, and management, and motivates them to engage in specific, effective behaviors that create more effective leaders, more productive teams, and a more inclusive organizational culture.
A truly inclusive culture is one where employees can vocalize their lived experiences—both at work and outside of it—and feel seen, heard, respected, and valued. In Listening Circles, experienced facilitators cultivate an environment of psychological safety and trust, where small groups can share and connect about recent events, workplace experiences, and the impact both have on their sense of belonging and well-being.
Understanding Anti-Racism Workshop
As energy and collective action in support of anti-racism grow, organizations and leaders have an opportunity to use their power and influence to drive meaningful social change. This training is designed to deepen people’s awareness around racism, anti-racism, and how both show up in professional contexts and society, and to spark reflection around how individuals, teams, and organizations can take meaningful action rooted in anti-racism.
Inclusive Culture Workshop
An inclusive culture is an effective culture. We use our proprietary Inclusive Leadership Framework — organized around Objectivity, Belonging, Voice, and Growth — to help companies proactively foster inclusion at every level of their organization. Our Inclusive Leadership workshops equip managers and leaders with the skills they need to build and sustain an inclusive culture: we facilitate a discussion on key barriers to inclusion that leaders have a unique opportunity to influence, and specific leadership behaviors that establish inclusive norms and drive equitable outcomes. Our Inclusive Workplace workshops are designed for all employees: we equip participants with the knowledge and skills they need to contribute to an effective culture where people from all backgrounds can thrive.
A wealth of research supports the value of designing inclusive organizations. When people don’t feel like they belong, they either they leave the organization or cover up their differences and try to assimilate. As a result, organizations miss out on important perspectives, social networks, and creativity. These workshops share research on the importance of belonging and provide strategies employees can use to cultivate a sense of belonging in their environment.
Growth Mindset Workshop
A growth mindset is the belief that abilities and talents are malleable rather than fixed traits. Research shows that many of the qualities of effective leaders — pushing yourself, taking risks, and staying resilient in the face of setbacks — are more common in people with a growth mindset. These workshops teach participants about the impact of a growth mindset, how to foster a growth mindset in oneself and others, and how to infuse a growth mindset into company culture.
Having a plan in place that helps your employees remember and use what they learned during a workshop is essential. We work with you to create a strategy and resources that help ensure training takes hold in your organization, from guides that facilitate follow up group discussions to D&I checklists and timely nudges for key people processes where bias and non-inclusive behavior can emerge.
DEI Advising & Leadership Coaching
We advise CEOs, Executives, and Boards on organizational philosophy and accountability, and coach HR, Talent, and D&I practitioners on effective execution.
Organizational Strategy & Transformation
We drive impact at a systemic level by designing systems, policies, practices, and processes that create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive companies.
A Data-Driven Approach to Systemic Change
You know effective D&I programs require change at a structural and systemic level, but where should your organization focus, and how should you prioritize your efforts? Where are your biggest gaps, and what are the strategies most likely to work for you? We use a quantitative and qualitative approach to answer these questions. We conduct assessments to evaluate the key levers that shape your workforce and provide tailored strategies that drive lasting change.
Designing an inclusive hiring process is a critical step in building a diverse organization, but gaps in recruiting and interviewing practices — from sourcing strategies that fail to cast a wide net to interviewing practices that enable biased decision making — can undermine your D&I goals. We conduct a quantitative analysis of your hiring funnel to identify gaps, review your hiring processes to uncover the drivers of those gaps, then design a more inclusive, effective hiring strategy.
Developing a culture that empowers all employees to be successful and bring their full identities to work is essential to attracting, growing, and retaining a diverse workforce. To understand how employees from all backgrounds experience and perceive your organizational culture, we use Paradigm’s proprietary Inclusion Survey, then conduct interviews and focus groups to bring survey data to life. We provide you with actionable insights, specific strategies, and a clear roadmap for cultivating a culture of inclusion and belonging, where everyone is empowered to do their best work.
Diversity Benchmarking and Reporting
Reliable data on the demographics of your workforce is at the core of D&I. We can help you understand how your company’s demographics compare to your peers, create dashboards that measure the efficacy of your efforts, and create internal or external D&I reports that go beyond simple, compliance-oriented metrics.
