Meet People Where They Are

Everyone is at a different point in their cultural competency journey. When you create spaces where people can lean into discomfort, you acknowledge the possibility of past harm without placing shame or blame. 

Our approach focuses on discomfort as an opportunity to learn by bringing awareness to the ways thinking, language, and actions can cause unintentional harm and acknowledging pain without centering on demographics. We focus on personal feelings of discomfort to address them so that everyone can listen to learn. Our Culture Academy fosters inclusive culture of belonging by ensuring that everyone has a basic understanding of:

  • Identity based differences

  • Intersectionality

  • Bias & microaggression

  • Cultures of respect

  • Basic diversity, equity, and inclusion principles

Humanize with Empathetic Storytelling

Narrative storytelling promotes positive social interactions. According to research, narrative storytelling led to a 300% increase in oxytocin levels in subjects, enabling them to feel more positive, comfortable, and socially connected. 


Our interactive, collaborative courses and workshops humanize diverse experiences with empathetic storytelling, building social connections across diverse backgrounds and identities. Our teams share authentic personal journeys of hardships and triumphs, enabling people - no matter where they are in their journey - to cultivate greater understanding, empathy, and acceptance. 

Match the Talent to the Need

Every organization is unique.  You need to connect with subject matter experts capable of cultivating the skill sets you and your team need to affect meaningful change. 


Our skilled facilitators come from diverse backgrounds to frame and structure conversations purposefully. Whether you are an organization seeking a group workshop or an individual looking for professional development, our Culture Academy provides you the information, knowledge, and skills to build out cultural competency.
