Nuance Culture Academy

Knowledge Through Storytelling

Developing cultural competency and fostering equitable, inclusive environments is both a moral and business imperative. Not only is it the right thing to do, but research shows that diverse and inclusive organizations achieve better business outcomes – from enhanced innovation and decision-making to improved employee engagement and retention. However, building truly inclusive cultures requires ongoing commitment and the right knowledge, skills, and mindsets.

Our Nuance Culture Academy equips your employees with the empathetic understanding and practical capabilities needed to contribute to inclusive cultures of belonging. Our interactive workshops, training programs, and coaching are designed to create brave spaces for transformative learning experiences.

What People Are Saying

PaLA 2022 Conference Attendee

“This speaker [Jessica Purdy] [for Addressing Systems of Inequity and Oppression in the Library System session] was phenomenal.  Addressed the topic in a non-preachy way than enabled everyone to gain access to the topics being discussed, rather than being on the defensive. Also, very nimble in answering questions from the audience...thorough, but not in the weeds.”

The Leadership Lancaster Team

It was a pleasure to have [Jessica and Julia] join us at the 21st Annual Leadership Advantage conference. We’ve received amazing feedback from [the] session! Thank you for sharing the importance of justice in DEI frameworks. We have no doubt participants left your session educated and empowered.

“The [Achieving Equity When Implementing Workplace Policies] session and presentation was fantastic and really made me think about approaching policy decisions differently.”
