When to Call Sedruola
Equity & Inclusion Assessment – Once you’re ready to move your organization toward a more equitable and inclusive culture call Sedruola. Her process includes having conversations with and listening to the most marginalized people within your organization, review of your current policies, processes and procedures, designing and implementing organizational surveys, interviews and focus groups to fully assess your needs. She’ll also review existing demographic and employment data and other documents, to fully understand your baseline. Then she’ll provide an assessment report with recommendations for next steps, which may include coaching, training, and other more cultural and structural changes.
Leadership Coaching – Coaching for a few key people in your organization helps deepen their understanding in a more substantial and sustainable way. In contrast to trainings – which are often crunched for time, and try to teach a little bit of info and skills to a lot of people at once very quickly – coaching allows a “go slow to go fast,” approach using in-depth conversations, reflection and practice to support your key team members in building their capacity for enacting social justice.
Employee Resource Group Development – Employee resource groups are a great way hear the voices of those within the organization that know what’s happening on the ground. They are the voice of the people and can help to shift culture within an organization. Sedruola will work with your group to develop a strong steady structure and foundation to ensure sustainability. Together you’ll decide on group charter, goals and format so it’s fully inclusive to anyone within the organization.
