TAKING AN ANTI-RACIST, INTERSECTIONAL APPROACH TO OUR EQUITY WORK
“Black women are the core of the nation’s economy, holding the front-line jobs and running small businesses, and they are more often the single heads of households in their communities.
If they are elevated through policy, including everything from paid sick leave to stimulus programs targeted directly toward them, the economy at-large will benefit.”
Anna Gifty Opoku-Agyeman, ‘Black Women Best’: Why putting black women first may save us from economic disaster, EPI.org
It takes all of us
Building equitable and inclusive workplaces.
At Genclusive, we believe that by examining gender roles in the workplace (and disrupting the status quo where necessary), we create a new story for everyone at work – one where there is equal access to leadership, advancement, and equitable pay.
From the start, we’ve understood the critical role employers play in closing the gender gap for women: by recruiting and hiring them; by promoting them; by paying them equitably; by consistently considering whether organizational practices, policies, and the culture support the needs of all workers.
As two white-identifying women raised in the white feminist movement, we are committed to an intersectional approach to our work, one that acknowledges our own biases and whenever possible centers the experiences of women of color.

How we got started
While working together on the Change The Story VT initiative, a partnership dedicated to fast-tracking women’s economic security in Vermont, Jessica Nordhaus and Lindsey Lathrop led a project we called the Business Peer Exchange (BPE). First made possible by a philanthropic investment by the Vermont Women’s Fund, a group of diverse employers met monthly to exchange ideas on retaining and advancing women at work. In 2017, Lindsey and Jessica took the show on the road expanding the program to include research-based curriculum, best practices, and accountability.
Over the past 4 years, we have engaged nearly 500 professionals from 50+ organizations in Vermont with the Business Peer Exchange model.
In 2019, we launched Genclusive to expand our impact beyond Vermont’s borders. We can’t wait to work with you!
