Organizational equity training with teeth.
Moving business practices from the transactional to the transformational.
Our promise to you: DIA will help you develop specific ways to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion work within your organization or business on personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.
When your organization is focused on checking boxes you miss out on opportunities to create equity. Unfortunately a lot of DEI trainings focus on the boxes. We don't.
We will take you to your learning edge, create brave space and explore our identities, power, and socialization in order to better understand ourselves and the role we have to play in diversity, equity and inclusion work.
We will give you the tools to change your organization and to have courageous conversations across difference.
We will help you create cultures, organizations and businesses that prioritize inclusion and equity in meaningful, actionable and sustainable ways.

“Ericka and Desiree bring rigor, compassion, and broad experience to the conversation about diversity. Their course will challenge and enlighten you, and it will also equip you with concrete, actionable strategies and tactics that are well within reach of any individual or organization no matter how small or large.” -Molly
“How often do we get the opportunity to take a class that completely alters our view of how we perceive the world? This class has awakened me to my own privilege, how my ideals aren't always consistent with my actions, and also my responsibility to use what I've learned as a springboard to become more informed, to be in action ... even knowing that I will be uncomfortable and that that is part of creating real change.” -Amanda
“I had been searching for this kind of course, but nobody was offering it. DIA delivered an excellent education on difference, diversity and equity and their business value!” -Peter
"DO IT! This course was challenging and rich with learning. Desiree, Jessica and Ericka are skilled teachers and facilitators - creating the container for us to do deep and brave work.
