Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusion
The 3-Month Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusion (SPFDI) is perfect for organizations who are interested in tackling their diversity and inclusion needs right now. We trim down on time by working with the diversity committee you already have in place in order to implement your SPFDI as quickly as possible. We will isolate and identify some of the key areas your organization should prioritize regarding diversity, equity, & inclusion and help develop a set of values or foci in an effort to provide an overarching framework to ground the SPFDI. You will also be able to choose to either take our Core Five 101 Online Training video – complete with a quiz – or engage us in a live Core Five 101 workshop as a way to ensure the work of your organization remains ongoing.
Steering & Diversity Committees
To ensure that your organization is able to roll out its SPFDI with organizational buy-in, we will work with you to create a SPFDI Steering Committee and a Diversity Committee to srve as you command centers. These two committees will lead the creation and implementation charges of the SPFDI as you begin to take your DEI work to new heights.
In order to ground your SPFDI, your organization/institution will need a set of values or foci centered around equity and inclusion if you don't yet have them. In this process, we will isolate and identify some of the key areas your organization/institution should prioritize regarding diversity, equity, & inclusion and help develop a set of values or foci in an effort to provide an overarching framework to ground the SPFDI.
Action Items & Strategies
The SPFDI recognizes that organizational health, success, and overall longevity has everything to do with its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through this unique strategic plan, your organization will be able to increase their diversity & inclusion efforts and outcomes in a short period of time. With three preset goals and comprehensive expected results, your organization will have the perfects mix of direction and flexibility it needs to make a diversity plan right for you.

Affinity/Employee Resource Groups
Employee Resource Groups (ERG), otherwise known as Affinity Groups (AG), are your organization's/institution's response to isolation and sense of belonging. When working at your job, it's important to have fun and to build community with one another; ERGs/AGs seek to accomplish just that.
