We are on a mission to redesign workplaces to become more equitable and inclusive to all, especially those who have been marginalized at work. We believe that by shifting the D.E.I. Infrastructure, leadership, and people team structures, an organization can sustain a D.E.I. journey that leads to true change.
We are a Black-owned, woman-owned organization that believes in creating safe, equitable workspaces for all individuals, particularly those who have been historically marginalized based on their race, gender, and accessibility. We center race in our work first and ask that you don’t shy away from these conversations, even if it’s your first time speaking on this.
We are deeply committed to ensuring our work primarily and ultimately benefits Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and unapologetically have designed access to our programs and pricing structures that reflect our commitment.
Before you hit any button to connect, inquire, or apply, it’s important that you know we prioritize working with teams, organizations, and leaders who are willing to do the real work of facing inequities in their own organizations and moving with action to address them.
Once you’ve reached out, please note that we will be spend time together diving deeply into your journey and where we may be able to help next, as we want to make sure our partnership centers BIPOC voices and leads to meaningful work.
Our Values + Guiding Principles
We bring our authentic, lived experiences to all spaces we are in.
We acknowledge the people who have journeyed before us in pioneering new ways of reaching equity.
We recognize this work requires relationship+community of diverse perspectives and not one singular voice.
We choose to work with leaders, teams, and in spaces that bring us joy over ones that burden us mentally and emotionally.
We focus on continuous growth in our work and know this work means committing to a lifelong journey.
We actively center the voice and perspective of those most directly impacted (and often still marginailzed) by A.D.E.I. work.
We call our overarching work The Shift because we believe this work requires a fundamental mindset shift that recognizes A.D.E.I. work must be embedded throughout an entire company’s ecosystem in order to create effective change.
Equity Over Equality
We focus on equity before equality, noting that equality provides everyone with the same while equity pushes us to first address that everyone is not at the same starting point.
A. D. E. I.
Yes, Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We intentionally focus on all 4 because we believe there is a difference between implementing traditional D.E.I. practices vs. looking at these practices through an anti-racist lens.
Individual and Collective Work
In order to change, we believe there are two parallel journeys that everyone will be on: one that shifts each of us personally and the second that shifts our collective companies more broadly.
- Real-Life Consulting Application
- Strategic Planning & Design
- Mentoring & Coaching
- Experiential Learning & Implementation
- Community and Partnerships
We focus on helping you build and create sustainable practices that allow you to continue this work well beyond your partnership with us. Our personal measure of success is if we can answer the question “ Can they continue to lead this change beyond us?” with a resounding yes!
Our company went through Dynasti Hunt’s Equity Accelerator and it gave us such a strong framework to explore how we can build a better business, that’s inclusive and equitable. We’ve stopped making as many assumptions and we’re starting to ask more questions before we act. The Accelerator is going to have a lasting impact on our company, culture, and product.
Dynasti and her team have a way of helping you bring your own organizational truth out through conversations with them, without you even realizing sometimes that is exactly where they are headed. They are thoughtful about getting to know your team and helping you think about new ways of approaching D.E.I. work that is authentic to you.
Dynasti’s delivery is great. I love how she projects the information to the team. The subject matter is very enlightening and informative and I have had a few aha moments.
From Organizational Structure to Individual Learning Spaces, We Strive to Create Meaningful Partnerships Through All of Our Consulting+Program Spaces
From assessment results to focus groups to conversations we have on a daily basis in our training and coaching sessions, we recognize there is an increased awareness that if key leaders across an organization lead in equitable & inclusive ways, their behavior will help an entire organization shift faster to building workplaces safe for all.
We also recognize that this means creating real-life learning experiences that help leaders immediately apply what they are learning to their work…and created we created all of our programs with this intentionality in mind.
Focusing on D.E.I. (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) continues to be a growing priority in workplaces across the US but much of it, while well-intentioned, is highly flawed in two ways.
1. It centers equality over equity which means we’re attempting to solve problems at the surface rather than taking into account how the problems were created and innovating solutions that speak to the whole instead of just the part.
2. It’s missing the A in it. ADEI (Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) work is the difference between just making everyone feel included (D.E.I.) to creating company culture, systems, and structures that make it clear that racism does not belong in our work.
If you actually want everyone (especially those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) to feel equitably valued at work, the commitment must be to:
Equity before equality
Inclusion and belonging
& D.E.I. with an anti-racism lens
We recognize this work can’t be done overnight.
And we’re not here either to tell you can it that quickly either!
Building a core D.E.I. infrastructure while simultaneously living out anti-racist behaviors professionally (and personally!) is lifetime work that requires each of us to get committed and stay committed. If you are looking for a quick solution, we would be wrong to tell you to join us for any program because there is no one right solution.
We recognize though that while there may not be a quick solution, there are clear, concrete places you can start. We are here to help do just that: start. Or if you’re in a place where you actually did start and then aren’t sure where to go next, a call with us may be your place to begin again.
We do this work because even though it’s not easy, we know what’s even harder is to be a marginalized individual who feels that they cannot have an equitable and inclusive experience at work. We know what it’s like to show up daily to be a space where you are continuously excluded based on the visible assumptions one has about you. We know what it’s like to want to get beyond cookie cutter D.E.I. programs and do work that leads to real change.
It’s time to do the work.
