WAKING THE unCONSCIOUS (WtC)
Working With You for a Better Tomorrow
We work with organizations of all sizes and from all different industries to deliver customized anti-racism consulting services aimed to help you understand the experiences of those that have been historically excluded at your organization. We move away from performative measures and create a safe space for your organization to endeavour on a journey of deep empathy and self-discovery in order to create meaningful and lasting change. We will help you unlearn, dismantle, reimagine, and create a new workplace that is inclusionary and allows everyone to thrive.
Our comprehensive services include:
- Organizational Audit & Evaluation: We assess your organization to get a better understanding of the behaviours, actions, and language surrounding anti-racism as well as the integration of anti-racist practices within your policies, procedures, systems, and culture. Our assessment is used in conjunction with our own proprietary tools to evaluate your organization to celebrate successes and identify targeted intervention areas.
- Facilitated Workshop Sessions: We facilitate workshop sessions that will help your leadership and staff develop their understanding on various topics such as anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism, 2SLGBTQIA+, and disability, as well as the intersectional component of these identities. These interactive sessions will push participants out of their comfort zones as they do the deep, introspective work and begin to understand the harm they are causing by maintaining the status quo.
- Implementation Support: We support your organization as you create new practices, policies, systems, and a culture that is inclusive of all people. We lend different perspectives to help you understand the impact of choices made and to prevent unintentional exclusion. We assess the impact of changes made to ensure that meaningful progress is occurring. As your organization grows, we help identify additional training needs and provide necessary support.
Our HistoryWtC was inspired by the current DEI discourse to move away from the mandated acceptance model to create brave spaces for individual conversations and understanding. Though embracing diversity can be challenging and even uncomfortable at times, we can’t change what we don’t acknowledge. By welcoming uncertainty and having honest discussions about privilege and the intentionally ignored, we can build authentic relationships in diverse cultural environments and workplaces. This will create true change within the underlying system that will release bias and inspire growth for all parties at all levels.
Our MissionTo guide individuals, companies, organizations, and institutions on their journey towards anti-racism to reach of place of sustainable behavioral and relational changes. To facilitate conversations and create tools that lead to a greater understanding of societal differences defined by privilege and the intentionally ignored.
Our VisionOne day, to have a world where systemic racism and all forms of racism, discrimination, inequity, and exclusion have been eradicated throughout every facet of society, and a new system with a new culture has been created that is inclusionary of all people.
