INCLUSIVE GROUP LEARNINGJOIN AN EXCHANGE
The best learning happens TOGETHER.
That’s why we facilitate cohort-based in-person and virtual exchanges for busy business leaders like you looking to create and sustain inclusive and equitable workplaces.
Our next cohorts begin September 2020!
The IN-PERSON exchange is for your workplace if you…
- can attend monthly meetings in Chittenden County, Vermont.
- are looking for tools to enhance recruiting, hiring, promotion and culture.
- want to make your organization more attractive to potential employees.
- are curious about how gender diversity (or lack thereof) impacts your workplace culture + bottom line.
The VIRTUAL exchange is for your workplace if you…
- want all the benefits of working with a cohort but time & geography limits you.

- Building an internal gender equity team to turn your goals into action.
- Addressing implicit bias in the workplace.
- Applying an intersectional lens and fostering a culture of inclusion.
- Engaging men as gender equity leaders, allies and sponsors; ensuring shared responsibility in meeting diversity goals.

- Cultivating a respectful workplace: responding to everyday sexism and preventing sexual harassment.
- Aligning compensation with organizational values and eliminating pay inequity.
- Creating inclusive messaging: what’s on your website? On your walls?
