Consulting and Coaching
Successful organizations create a culture where employees are engaged, respected, and equitably developed. From leadership development to crisis management and conflict resolution, SDI works with all levels of your organization to build individual capacity and inclusive teams.
Support for HR/People & Culture, DEIA Professionals and Committees, and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
ERGs, HR/People & Culture teams, DEIA staff, and DEIA committees are often tasked with leading DEIA efforts within their organization. SDI’s consultants offer knowledge and skill-based support for all who are moving DEIA efforts forward. We work with your existing people, processes, and plans while offering help in the development of these DEIA institutional resources.
SDI works with managers, supervisors, and other leaders to develop DEIA knowledge and skills, including managing challenging conversations, building allyship, and addressing bias. Using an approach built on emotional intelligence, leaders gain the relational skills necessary for supporting and developing their teams.
Employee Engagement and Equitable Development
Equitable practices require transparent, accessible, and standardized approaches to employee engagement and development. SDI can work with HR professionals and other leaders to develop tools and systems for ensuring an inclusive approach to performance management, goal setting, and professional growth.
Recruiting, Hiring, and Retention
Most organizations recognize the need to increase the diversity of their teams, but struggle with how to recruit and retain diverse candidates. SDI can help organizations identify and minimize biases in their hiring processes. We can help on the individual, team, and organizational level to ensure you are taking the necessary steps to increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in all parts of your organization.

These tools can provide important feedback on areas for both personal and organizational development regarding equity, inclusion, and emotional intelligence. SDI consultants will work with you to identify the right assessment tool for your organization.
