Welcome to "It's Our Privilege!"

Do your employees groan when the word diversity comes up?

Would you like to be more fluent in the language of diversity?

Does your team have difficulty understanding each other?

Would you like to improve your ability to handle conflicts and issues related to different cultures and backgrounds?

Then you can finally relax because you’re in the right place.

If you want to create a new culture then there needs to be a shift. Many times this shift seems so drastic that most organizations choose not to take it on, and the results of that non-strategy can be one of putting out fires and dealing with incidents and controversies as they arise.

It’s a classic tip of the iceberg scenario. Your company’s ship is sailing along without much of an apparent diversity issue, but unless you have a plan in place, your chances of colliding with something that may seem superficial on the surface, can result in much deeper employee and PR issues.

These issues can be avoided with the implementation of a clear Inclusion and Diversity strategy, and It’s Our Privilege! can be your guide.

Theresa Pizzuto, MS and JoNell A. (Jody) Usher, PhD, your experts and allies, have a combined 48 years’ experience in non-profit leadership, human resources consulting and higher education.

Here are some outcomes you can expect when you work with us:

Clarity about your organization’s diversity and inclusion needs
Increased multi-cultural competency throughout the organization
New lines of communication that will transcend units, allowing diversity awareness to become more a part of the day-to-day activities
A new appreciation of other cultures and individuals represented within your organization
Improved teamwork and a more consistent sense of cohesion
Awareness of how privilege and stereotypes impact productivity and commitment to the organizational purpose

All of these benefits translate into increased employee retention and morale, combined with a decrease in costly turnover and even more costly legal entanglements.

This could be the start of something truly significant for you and your organization that will give you a sense of confidence and hope for a more cohesive community-oriented workplace that fosters increased cooperation, productivity and understanding.

Participant Comments:

“You are both amazing and I feel so lucky to have been in your session!”

I felt support for conversations that I would not have otherwise been “strong enough” to have.

I was amazed at how well you listened and heard each participant. That allowed you to move us as a group to a much “deeper place” of conversation that I imagined possible when I arrived!

Another benefit I experienced from our event was “seeing the big picture.” I am always “looking for the big picture” and I realized in the course of our event how much of the picture I had been missing.
