Practicing in Community: What Sets Our Consultant Learning Program Apart

When we partnered with the Institute for Nonprofit Practice to develop the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) for Consultants Program, we knew that it was not just a regular consultant learning program. To fully embody DEIB practices, we had to create a space of community and connection for consultants to learn and practice these skills. 

In the video below, Simone John, TSNE Senior Organizational Consultant and one of the cohort trainers for the DEIB for Consultants Program, explains why we created this space:

As social movements demand society to be more equitable, and just, nonprofits are called to do the same. To be more racially equitable and just, we must not only develop/strengthen our DEIB lens but also competencies to live out equity and justice in practice and as an ethic. The goal of the program is to build and strengthen racial equity-based competencies of consultants to shepherd people working towards the just world in which we are free and thriving.

This program centers approaches to teaching and learning that center relationship building, knowledge building and application and practicing skills in community.

From the DEIB for Consultants Program Alumni 

What made the experience unique for me was learning and growing with an intentionally multi-racial group who brought a wealth of diverse professional and life experience to the program. It was a privilege to learn alongside a group of committed consultants, all looking to improve their practice and progress racial justice.

— Ilka Walkley, Nonprofit Consultant

"The program provided the space for stimulating, insightful dialogue and discussions on a topic that often feels too big to know where and how to approach it. With our masterful, heart-full facilitators, this cohort of consultants from diverse backgrounds, races, cultures and geography, co-created a rich learning environment that helped me integrate a DEIB lens both personally and professionally"

— Monique Morimoto, Founder and Principal of SoulWorks Coaching
