Lead with Equity

We work with professionals and leaders within organizations who understand the moral and business case for moving equity work forward. The time to becoming a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization is now. Let us help.


Build Your DEI Toolkit

You need tangible tools and action to advance equity in your personal and professional life. Collaborate with others in your field and community and let CEI guide you to creating essential tools and strategies to increasing your awareness and operationalizing equity.


Be A Change Agent

As our society grows more diverse and as the disparities and tension between marginalized and dominant groups increases, people have an opportunity to come together to address racial inequities, break down barriers and move towards creating a world that works now and for the generations that follow. Become a change agent in your community.


We Believe in Possibility

At CEI we are fueled by the idea of a more inclusive world. When organizations and people are operating in a more equitable and inclusive manner – everyone wins.


Our Mission: to transform the spaces we work and live in.

Center for Equity and Inclusion (CEI) is a specialized consulting agency focused on advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts within organizations, education systems and communities. It was born out of the increasing racial and economic disparities experienced in our communities, the perceived lack of a systemic approach to addressing these disparities, and a growing idea about a holistic solution.

At Center for Equity and Inclusion, our methodologies drive transformational change.  Founded in 2015, we’ve helped more than 100 organizations (non-profits, foundations, civic, education and private sector) re-envision and implement long-term organizational change through training, system design and leadership development.

Building an equitable organization takes time, investment and commitment from leadership teams.  At CEI, we have the experience to be your partner in navigating this work and achieving results.
