The Framework

Listening to Context

Everyday interactions, including moments of bias, can be understood within three contexts: the personal, the institutional, and the societal. Our first step is to explore actual texts, such as quotes from conversations, newspaper articles, or even institutional memos, from all three contexts.

Listening to Each Other

Facilitated conversations and skill-building exercises allow participants to move through the cycle of listening, noticing, and responding. This work develops both authentic connection and interactional competence.

Listening to Ourselves

While policies and procedures are crucial, many diversity plans miss the importance of interactional change. Participants who have moved through stages 1 and 2 are ready to identify problematic areas in their communities or workplace environment, and to create plans for generating change. 

We work with corporations, non-profits, small businesses, schools, community organizations, groups of friends, colleagues, and community leaders. Group sizes range from small gatherings of 4-5 people to larger cohorts of 100+ participants. To set up an initial conversation, please contact us.
