More Than A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Firm
Unlike typical DEI firms, our services are designed to be a catalyst resource that encourages community members and organizations to reach the goal of Inclusivity and Belonging, so to foster cultural shifts and positively impact the bottom line of productivity. ASCRIBE provides opportunities for professional and personal development, as well as, a cultural intelligence mindset shift that centers the humanity of all team members. This is what we know: getting to the root of disconnecting experiences impedes and impacts the bottom line of sustainable outcomes.
As a community leader, former educator, and equity impact strategist topics have a vast range. Including, but not limited to, critical race theory, building anti-racist work and learning environment, addressing the layers and impacts of systemic, institutional, and structural racism, racial reconciliation, cultural intelligence praxis, raising anti-racist children, community restorative and transformative justice.
Sonia Lewis created the Teach-In program as a result of COVID-19 disrupting the lives of students. She was aware that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) students were likely to not be provided with the essential tools to thrive in a "Pandemic Education" environment.
The Teach-In was created to complement traditional school learning environments, with a culturally responsive curriculum that centers the Black lived experiences. This "Ethnic Studies-ish" approach speaks to the needs of, not just Black students, but needs for all students.
We see the value in everyone.
We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2000, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
For Organizational Leaders and Corporate Executives
Leading is hard work, leaders need to have a degree of confidence, clarity, resilience, and vulnerability to connect. I want to take this list a step further and assert that good leaders lead by being an example of learning on the job. I am here to assist you with the knowledge necessary to have an impactful conversation with your team about Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Racism in the workplace.
This 3-month program will fast-track and undergird the knowledge base required for Leaders and Executive to have a semblance of courage to navigate their team through Equity work.
