Examining inequities, anti-racism and systemic barriers within any organization is both rewarding and challenging. Any undertaking of equity, diversity, and inclusion work can challenge the core belief systems that many individuals have about themselves and the society they know, and awaken a wide range of emotions within an organization. However, successful Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work of any kind must be undertaken with the right approach that can lead to impactful and long-lasting change, that benefits all employees.
Most importantly, we work from the frameworks of anti-oppression and anti-Black racism.
At KAMA Consulting, we anchor all EDI services in reflexive practice. We meet teams where they are at. Encourage everyone to acknowledge intersectional identities and areas of privilege in those intersections, enabling them to critically evaluate their own social location and socialization.
We call in and prepare for difficult conversations. We take an Africentric approach, calling on ancestors to set the tone and stage for truth-telling. We ask everyone to consider their intersectional identity and the social location from which they are engaging in equity work and conversations. We acknowledge settings and oppression that has taken place while emphasizing the importance of striving for honesty and authenticity through identified group agreements.
We believe that context is critical. We provide historical and empirical context for the conversation. Providing learners with a responsive way into sharing experiences, while being mindful of the sanctity of sharing these experiences.
