Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusion
The 6-Month SPFDI is perfect for organizations who are interested in taking a more methodical and democratic approach to their organization’s diversity & inclusion efforts. This 6-month package offers everything in the 3-month package along with our Sociosystemic Constitution; our research-based binding document that is comprised of our Articles of Design and Sociosystemic Governance Framework to ensure the most inclusive strategic planning process available. We will also help you begin designing your Affinity/Employee Resource Groups.
This 6-Month process is preferable for organizations who are looking to reimagine their organizational strategic plan and who are interested in infusing DEI into every fabric of their professional frameworks. It is designed to work in replacement of your organization's strategic plan, rather than alongside.
Articles of Design
Sociosystemic Governance Framework
Our research-based solution to becoming a sociosystemic organization, our Sociosystemic Constitution will help your organization finally align its organizational design with its behavior in an effort to sustainably support DEI in a long term way.
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.
