OUR STORY

Founded in 2015, Center for Equity and Inclusion began as a foundation-driven initiative for non-profits to engage in a long-term, racial equity-focused model of organizational change. Given the immediate impact and success of our work, news spread quickly. What makes us different is we are former educators who hold a constant learning mindset. We look beyond a “check the box” approach to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). We bring a comprehensive approach that is both personal and beneficial to organizations of all kinds. 

We are all about shaking up the status quo to improve team dynamics, systems change and leadership. 

Our team shares a deep and collective commitment to building equitable and inclusive communities. We use the word “communities” purposely.  We see the workplace as a community, a classroom as a community, our civic life as communities, our boardrooms as communities. We see community existing wherever we come together under a common purpose or mission.

Every staff member at CEI is united by a belief that we have the capacity to build communities in which every member is included, connected and contributing to their potential.  Our team brings diverse personal and professional experiences, unique skill sets, and an ability to both personalize and strategically operationalize the work with our client partners.
