The Equity Collective is a non-hierarchical collaboration.
We embody honesty and non-violence to support the thorough investigation of social inequity and systems of oppression. Through collaboration across discipline, partners commit to the dismantling of inequitable social structures and the creation of a society that practices radical inclusion.
Thoughtful evaluation and analysis, of both internal and external systems of inequity, allows organizations to identify harmful structures as well as the individuals that create and maintain them. Whether through organizational overhaul, executive coaching, or products and programs, our team supports the development of a holistic framework designed to deepen your organizations commitment to, and practice of, inclusion and equity.

“This workshop allowed for so much connection between the personal and the structural. I appreciated being able to have this conversation without being bogged down in guilt and frustration. This was structured so that we could all engage with the topic, even if we are all in different places.”
-Participant, ZSF General Hospital, San Francisco, CA
“So helpful in guiding the pace of our conversation about privilege and race. Respectful, inviting, non-judgmental and open. Makes people feel safe in difficult territory.”
-Director of Training, Ann Martin Center Oakland CA
“Gave people the freedom to be themselves and that they would not be judged–created a safe and welcoming space; and that everyone has a different truth that they come from. Made for an open conversation.”
