Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Belonging
You know you need to do something about diversity and inclusion in your organization, but you don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming and difficult territory to navigate.
A great company starts with great leadership! Building an inclusive culture is more than just consulting or training. You intentionally set the tone for how it feels to work within your company.
All we ask is that you and your team come with compassion, a willingness to learn and an open mind.
Why We’re Different
We are not here to judge. We are not here to critique. We are not here to assume. We are here to meet you and your team where you are.
Our goal is to help improve your workplace culture and inclusivity, not shame or blame your current practices or understandings.
In all of our diversity and inclusion work, we have a multi-person team facilitating the work. All of our facilitation teams are comprised of at least one Person of Color and one Caucasian person. We strive to include consultants who are LGBTQIA+, differently-abled and multigenerational. Diversity has many facets that are all vital to the vibrancy of an organization. We find that having a multi-cultural facilitation team communicates messages in the most effective manner possible.

We expected great training and consulting from the team at Aligned at Work®. We got even more. Their training isn’t like the others. People uncovered things within themselves and we have a stronger foundation for diversity because of it.
We chose Aligned at Work® because from the very first conversation, they met us where we were, not where they thought we should be. We needed a bit of education, and that was OK with them. Throughout the process, we felt included and that our voices mattered. Our training turned out better than we could have imagined, and we have the consultative process of Aligned at Work to thank for that.
