Since 2007, CDS has been dedicated to leveraging diversity and inclusion challenges for opportunities, organizational growth, and social impact.
Our headquarters is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the hub of the USA’s most revolutionary practices around social impact and diversity. Below is what we can do for you:
Programming and strategic planning for diversity, equity, and inclusion “in house”.
Content analysis and editing for writing projects, initiatives, and curriculum development with a focus on improving diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Delivering workshops, lectures, and conferences that focus on turning diversity challenges into opportunities for both social impact and business/organizational success.
ANALYTICAL REPORTS + STRATEGIC IMPLEMENTATION
With our Specialized Packages, we will produce analytical reports that show how diversity and inclusion will yield the highest returns on investment, help you achieve your organizational goals, recruit and retain diverse talent, and make structural/integrative changes to create a 'belonging' environment. After analytical reports are completed, one or more of our teammates will collaboratively strategize with you on how to implement and operationalize diversity and inclusion.
