EBDI's core model, EBDI Dialogues, centers on a four-stage process that includes focus groups and short presentations of personal narratives by members of your organization. The goals of Dialogues are three-fold:
Understand how people in your organization experience the organizational culture and community
Foster interpersonal vulnerability between colleagues, building self-awareness and trust that allows individuals to practice true solidarity rather than performative allyship
Begin to develop a shared understanding of your organization's community, and a shared vision for how your community can be more equitable and inclusive
EBDI Dialogues includes the delivery of a report detailing key themes from listening sessions, and suggested action items for your community. Learn more about this service.
Culture & Sensitivity Audits
We review your internal and/or external materials to determine whether their content is in alignment with your vision for diversity, equity and inclusion.
We use quantitative and qualitative instruments to assess the extent to which you are fostering an inclusive environment at the organizational and workgroup levels.
Retreat and Meeting Facilitation
We serve as your partner through all steps of retreat, or meeting development and facilitation.
In inclusive environments, individuals of all backgrounds—not just members of historically powerful identity groups—are fairly treated, valued for who they are, and included in core decision making.
