Women In Consulting

Women In Consulting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

Women In Consulting stands in solidarity with people protesting the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the countless other black men and women whose lives have been ended at the hands of the police, criminal justice inequality, and systemic racism. Protests and vigils are frequently the catalysts for crucial foundational change in our democracy, however uncomfortable they may be. 

Women In Consulting as an organization recognizes the benefits we've experienced via white privilege. 

We are committed to being anti-racist in our actions, our policies, our membership outreach, our speakers, and our outreach and mentorship for ongoing WIC leadership. We will be doing the work to make that happen. This commitment takes us further than our non-discrimination policy in our Bylaws. 

We look forward to having deep dialogue on what that really means and how we can shift the dynamic for broader support of our colleagues who are people of color.

We are putting a resource page together for all of us to use in educating ourselves and taking anti-racist action that will be ready in the next week or two. We will have lists of books, essays, videos, and more for our members and our community to use for their own education and also to help their clients and their community in whatever ways make sense. 

Women In Consulting’s leadership will be taking advantage of these resources, as well as reaching out to understand how we can better serve the community as champions for anti-racism. We are looking at workshops and exercises to increase self-awareness and understanding for our current leadership as well as offerings for our community in the next few months.

We invite our larger community to participate in this process with us. Women In Consulting is, at heart, a community-focused organization. Businesses are built in community. If you have thoughts or recommendations or would like to be part of this process in any way, please let us know.
