Make Communities supports leaders and teams to grow their capacity to work with an equity focus.

Whether your organization calls it DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion), DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access), DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging), JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion), or even PBJ (Power, Justice, and Belonging), it requires organization wide and individual change. Identifying the tools, resources, and strategies won’t happen over night. We customize and implement growth trajectories for teams of any size.
