BEYOND BARRIERS

Equity, Inclusion and belonging solutions for every organization

Diversity of lived experiences are essential for your organization to thrive.

Creating diverse and welcoming spaces is about more than profitability. While diversity of voice and skills will lead to greater employee retention through work culture satisfaction, diversification also enables your business to thrive through community building, enhanced learning experiences and outwardly positive community impacts.

IS YOUR BUSINESS OR SCHOOL ACTIVE AND INTENTIONAL ABOUT CREATING AND MAINTAINING A CULTURE OF INCLUSIVITY?

Do you want integrate inclusive language practices and policies within your organization in a way that inspires your team to engage with meaning?

Are you comfortable sharing your pronouns or asking someone else theirs?

“Simply Good Form provided their Beyond the Binary workshop to our entire staff group and was regarded as the best professional development session staff have ever had. The session truly opened our eyes to unconscious bias and gave us new vocabulary and tools to take away. Some aspects of the workshop was new territory for us but Cynthia and her team were so warm and welcoming and made the content extremely accessible. We look forward to doing more work with SGF!”
