AIDE Culture Improvement

Champions of Inclusive Cultures

Building an inclusive, equitable culture where every employee can thrive is not only the right thing to do – it's a strategic imperative. That's why we've developed the AIDE Culture Improvement Program. It's a comprehensive, data-driven approach to making meaningful, sustainable progress on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

The AIDE Process

A Roadmap for Culture Transformation


The journey begins with a deep dive into your current organizational culture. We conduct a thorough assessment using our proprietary Organizational Culture Quality Assessment (OCQA) survey. The OCQA examines 18 key cultural elements across the Social, Ideological, and Operational dimensions, revealing gaps between your intended and actual culture. We supplement the survey data with a review of policies, practices, employee data, and demographics to establish a quantitative baseline.

Assessing Accessibility to Improve Institutional Dynamics and Employee Experiences

Accessible-By-Default is Accessible to All

Holistic Approach

AIDE takes a comprehensive view of accessibility, going beyond physical accommodations to address barriers related to neurodiversity, socioeconomic status, caregiving responsibilities, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, and ethnicity. By systematically dismantling obstacles to full participation and equitable opportunity, you cultivate a culture where everyone can contribute their best.

Data-Driven Insights

AIDE is grounded in rigorous data collection and analysis. From quantitative surveys to qualitative interviews, we gather the evidence needed to diagnose pain points, inform priorities, and measure progress. Equipped with these insights, you can confidently invest resources where they will have the greatest impact.

Nuanced Solutions

Every organization's culture improvement journey is unique. Rather than a prescriptive, off-the-shelf program, AIDE delivers customized strategies and solutions aligned with your specific business goals, employee needs, and cultural vision. We meet you where you are and help you get where you want to go.

Sustainable Results

AIDE is not a quick fix, but a roadmap for continuous improvement. By building internal capacity, embedding accountability, and regularly assessing progress, you hardwire a accessible-by-default mindset into your organizational DNA. The result is transformative, lasting culture change.

The Business Case for AIDE

Attracting and Retaining Talent

AIDE positions you as an employer of choice, helping you attract top talent and reduce costly turnover, by creating a workplace without barriers where everyone is welcome.

Enhancing Engagement and Productivity

When employees feel valued and included, they are more engaged and motivated. AIDE fosters a culture of belonging where everyone can do their best work.

Mitigating Risk

Discrimination and inequity expose organizations to legal, financial, and reputational risks. AIDE helps you proactively identify and address potential issues before they become liabilities.

Reflecting Your Customer Base
