How to harness "The Power of One" to sidestep any organizational politics

Regardless of your role, you can elevate your organization's empowerment efforts by being intentional about increasing equity in your environment. I'll also give you tips on how to present your findings to others.

Trust me, you already know enough...

When it comes to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, we delay getting started because we don't think we know enough. The problem is...we never will. If you've watched any of those shows on HGTV, very few renovations go exactly according to plan.

One of my favorite sayings is, "As you do it, you'll learn it." You know enough to get started right now and along the way, you'll learn even more. You have to accept the fact that you will probably make mistakes, you may feel uncomfortable with what you find out, and your plan will not be perfect. In spite of that, your organization will still be closer to equity and empowerment than it was before. 

Let's just start...and I'll show you how to become a DIY changemaker.

Do you have groups that you're not reaching or are being underserved using your current methods? 

Let's Uncover What's Happening

  • Ask the "right" questions  Sometimes we get stuck because we don't know, what we don't know. Let's discuss ways to ask the "right" questions so we can fully understand the problem.
  • Push past the problems to discover the possibilities  If you find an organization that is problem-free, please call me ASAP. Unfortunately, we don't have a problem shortage. We have to shift our thinking so we can see the possibilities that exist using our current resources.
  • Create spaces for people to feel "seen" and "heard"  The whole point of equity is making sure that everyone has a seat at the table. Everyone deserves to feel like they belong and they can be themselves. Together, we can make this happen! Sign up now to save your seat. 

A Note From Your Coach...

I get it...trying to create change can feel overwhelming

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability but comes through continuous struggle.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

As long as we have breath in our bodies, we have another chance to keep pushing and pursuing justice. We have to hold on to our hope and fight for what is right. Not every organization has the budget or resources to hire someone for equity so you may have to take a DIY approach. It's much easier to do it with a group like the Strugglish Superhero Squad so we can encourage one another. Don't let this moment pass you by. Sign up for the training, block it off in your schedule, and come prepared to embrace imperfection as we create a plan to serve and empower other people. See you soon.

Yours in the Struggle,
