Our Services

RACIAL EQUITY

We provide various racial equity workshops that help build a critical understanding of race, power, and privilege.  We go beyond implicit bias to unpack its connection to structural racism and how that affects you, your work places and institutions at large. Our work is rooted in solidarity building and anti-racism approaches.

GENDER EQUITY & sexual harassment prevention

The gender equity curriculum unpacks topics like the gender binary, spectrums of sexuality, and structures of power. 

 

Our unique sexual harassment prevention curriculum goes beyond the federally mandated training. The modules are designed through a critical, intersectional lens on power and gender, and building a culture of consent.

Consulting 

Consultation is devised through an in-depth intake process and is carried out in various ways, including:

  • Community engagement 

  • Internal DEI audits, policy & strategy building

  • Brand support and editorial counsel

  • Leadership development

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

I’ve been through a lot of Diversity, Inclusion training - and this was the best far I’ve seen. Their combination of movement, exercise, presentation, and interaction was the best combo.

 - Advocacy Organization

The Shift team's training went above and beyond the definitions and legalities of workplace sexual harassment. From gender roles to intersectionality, they gracefully illuminated the systemic issues and blind spots that contribute to our culture of complacency -- those uncomfortable truths that are more important than ever to be aware of right now. They cultivated judgement-free discussions and created a safe space for our employees to ask questions, provide examples, and learn from each other. 

- MEDIA Company 

Through their thoughtful content approach, SHIFT helps hold space for insightful dialogues and engaging interaction.  Anyone who works with them or attends their trainings would be impressed and inspired. Thank you SHIFT, we are so glad to have worked with you.
