DEI CAPACITY BUILDING AND STRATEGY
With over two decades of expertise, CEI takes a highly collaborative approach with clients to build the structures, competencies and tools to advance and sustain equity efforts throughout all aspects of an organization. This work fuels success. Period.
We engage with people at all levels –from leadership to interns to external partners– to assess current workplace challenges, create collaborative toolkits, and implement long-term equity, diversity and inclusion plans to ensure personal prosperity and business success.
Equity work is relevant in all institutions in our society, including one of the most critical; our education system. When educators have the will and passion to advance equity throughout classrooms, schools, and districts the positive outcomes for students and families are infinite.
Becoming a culturally responsive and committed school district or education-based nonprofit does not happen overnight. The process for school districts and community-based organizations partnering with schools to become truly inclusive can take years, and even then must continually be shepherded by dedicated staff and administrators. CEI will help develop the tools and plans needed to pursue this work for years to come.
Designed for individuals leading equity, diversity and inclusion efforts within their personal and professional environments. The CEI EQUITY FACILITATION INTENSIVE is an opportunity to foster personal growth and develop the facilitation skill-set needed to lead complex, and often challenging conversations, trainings or coaching sessions.
The CEI Fellowship is a 2 year comprehensive paid learning experience for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) – with backgrounds in human/social services, organizational development or related fields – who are committed to leading for equity and bring their cultural backgrounds, identities and lived experiences into their workplace. The fellowship position is intended to grow the pool of leaders in the DEI field across a range of settings.
