We take an innovative approach to transforming workplace culture by centering people, processes and technology on equity, inclusion and belonging. We can guide you through strategic planning, recruiting & hiring, performance management, employee engagement, affinity resource groups, communication & training, and resource planning.
Employees interact with an organization’s people, processes and technology every single day. Our assessment evaluates these interactions through an equity and inclusion lens, seeking to understand employee experience, the relationship between organizational practices and desired outcomes, and opportunities for improvement.
Our workshops are akin to a learning lab. Everyone speaks. Everyone listens. Everyone will investigate their relationship to new information, try on new ways of engaging others, practice a both/and approach, and develop resilience and resourcefulness … all in a space centered on safety and inclusion for all.
Our leadership coaching focuses on building capacity within leaders to model the values and beliefs of the organization and to be an effective, inspiring leader. Relationship-focused skills such as compassionate communication, accountability, conflict management, storytelling, and mentorship & sponsorship enable leaders to build trust with their peers and within their teams, develop authentic relationships, and foster greater inclusion and belonging with those around them.
We are pleased to engage larger groups as a keynote speaker or panelist. Please contact us about discussion topics and speaker rates.
"i2Coalition is the largest cloud industry trade association in North America. A small but passionate group of members developed the Diversity & Equity Initiative (DEI) to try to find ways to address significant diversity and equity gaps in the tech industry from within. i2Coalition hired Southwell Solutions to assist us in this goal. Darcy was able to help us quickly move past identifying and understanding the scope of the problem in terms we could all understand. She was able to help DEI members workshop tangible solutions they could bring back to their companies to make immediate positive impacts. As a direct result of the work done by Southwell Solutions, the i2Coalition’s small DEI group was able to make an outsized impact on the cloud industry, pushing change into the executive offices of the cloud industry that we are hopeful is helping this industry achieve greater equity and diversity, especially in leadership positions. We prize our relationship with Southwell Solutions and highly recommend partnering with them."
