Effective leadership isn’t just about the results your team produces, it’s about the experience your team is having.
You’re likely here because you value antiracism, diversity, equity and inclusion but making sure your team is experiencing these things is more complex in practice than on paper.
You’re ready to commit to making shifts but need a solid foundation and full plan that will guide you along the way.
And, your organization doesn’t have a dedicated ADEI department to lead this work and if someone has stepped up to “lead,” they haven’t actually built or implemented a full ADEI strategy… nor do they have capacity to do it alone.
Good news: you are not alone.
Better news: you’re in the right place.
The Shift Accelerator
Our 6- month program combines a hybrid approach of live coaching & learning spaces, coaching, and tailored support for your organization in order to push you past the beginning stages of equity work and into a position to build transformational equity practices that lead to real change for your business & team.
Starting with a customized equity assessment to help you begin to implement a 3- year, strategic D.E.I. plan, you’ll learn the tools needed to embed inclusive, equitable strategies and approaches into your core business functions.
This is our only offer that combines training, coaching, community, consulting, and custom access and support along the way.
I’m Dynasti Hunt, Creator of The Shift Accelerator and I’m here to support you in creating sustainable change without needing the indefinite support of a consultant.
After sitting in the CDO seat and leading the implementation of a full program from design to foundational launch, I decided to take all of my knowledge and teach it to organizations. The Accelerator is designed to support an organization directly in building the foundational ADEI infrastructure needed to move forward in the work in a collective way.
Inside the Accelerator, you’ll learn how to:
Develop the foundational vision and principles for ADEI work aligned with your organization’s mission
Establish systems to monitor progress for ADEI work
Create up to date ADEI priorities aligned with your business strategy so everyone understands what we’re doing and why
Engage your team in this work so it’s meaningful to everyone and not just checking a box
Set up your onboarding process so new hires can seamlessly step aboard and get up to speed to continue this work with you

Live group training & coaching sessions with Dynasti & other expert coaches
Live group coaching sessions are held for all participants where you can bring any of your questions, ideas, and hurdles to the space for feedback and support. We recognize that as you go through this journey that new things will arise and evolve and we want to be your partner throughout your experience with us. We want you to leave the full year with us feeling that you can internally carry the work forward with your team instead of leaning on external support.
Weekly review and feedback on your work
Each week, your team will have the opportunity to submit your work to our team for review and feedback. This allows for us to be co-creators and collaborators in your equity journey, from helping you develop tools that are custom for your organization while simultaneously giving you actionable feedback you can implement immediately.
Individual organization check-in sessions with your organization’s coach
Each organization is assigned a coach who you’ll have a chance to check in directly with over the course of your program (in addition to group coaching and feedback reviews). We have identified specific points as you progress through each phase of the work, get additional feedback on ways to make progress, and work through any barriers you are facing in the work.
Phase 1: Explore
Understand the strengths and gaps of your organization through our equity assessment while exploring and digging deeper into your own anti-racist journey, personally and professionally.
Note: If you have already completed an equity assessment or audit, we’ll review this data and move quicker into phase 2 of the work.
Phase 2: Examine
Examine the roots behind the inequities and harmful experiences that exist within your organization in order to understand what needs to be dismantled at the institutional level and why it continues to persist in the first place.
Phase 3: Reimagine
Define and design your organization’s ADEI vision, guiding principles, and shared definitions in order to ensure your entire team has a common understanding of your approach to this work and why.
Phase 4: Build
Build out your 3- year strategic goals, implementation plan, and measurement goals in order to ensure you have a clear plan of how ADEI work will come to life across your organization, instead of just existing on a sheet of paper.
What makes this experience different?
The Accelerator is available to up to 8 people across your organization so that a cross-functional group of team members across all levels and teams can get support, be heard and gain the institutional knowledge to carry the work forward across the organization.
If you’re ready to have a solid infrastructure and roadmap to implement A.D.E.I. work along with a cross-functional group of people trained who can lead, drive this work forward, and model anti-racist behaviors across your organization over the next 3 years – this is for you.
