Shawn’s approach to DEI training focuses on changing the approach to its functional order to: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI).


He is a firm believer that organizations need to first build equity into their organizational system through individual and group discovery, inventory and assessment, and engaging, in-person education and facilitation. He understands that different departments and workgroups have varying levels of experience in equity work and seeks to meet them where they are at on their organizations journey.


Once organizations establish an equity baseline, he then focus on diversity. This phase includes assessing current recruiting and hiring practices through an EDI lens and working with human resources to implement an action plan to improve diversity in job candidates and the organization.


Once diversity is given the appropriate power and authority, it allows space to create inclusion, including building a culture which supports equity, continues growth in diversity and sustains inclusiveness through a BIPOC leadership plan.
