Making Equity Real

Many organizations hold equity and inclusion as a core values, but find that living up to those values is more difficult in practice. Most organizations unwittingly adopt a normative white, male, heterosexual cultural paradigm without realizing it, diminishing the inclusion and contributions of people who do not belong to the normative cultural group. Align supports systems change, which operationalizes equity and builds intercultural competency by :

  • Conducting a baseline assessment of intercultural competency utilizing the Intercultural Development Inventory® and measuring progress in developing greater competency over time.

  • Delivering developmentally appropriate training and coaching to grow the intercultural competency of individuals and teams.

  • Establishing and mentoring Action Learning Teams to assess and address key diversity and inclusion system changes within your organization related to hiring, events, marketing, product and service delivery, etc. 

  • Moving beyond numeric diversity to real equity and inclusion by creating and managing to a that supports and leverages intercultural competency for organizational systems change.
