EQT By Design brings 25+ years of experience in equity-centered strategic planning, change management, and organizational cultural design within government, community,

and the corporate and nonprofit sectors.



EQT By Design helps you better understand the context, challenges and opportunities that set the stage for reaching your project, program, or organizational goals around equity and inclusion. We do this by questioning, exploring and challenging in order to understand what diverse populations in your community or diverse perspectives within your organization are thinking. We then use this information to help you develop and implement an equity-centered engagement or change management strategy. Examples of assessments include: surveys and evaluations, personal interviews, research and field testing, SWOT analysis, and environmental scanning.



EQT By Design works with you to develop smart, inclusive processes that support your community and organizational goals. Our culturally-relevant design-thinking approach facilitates a streamlined, comprehensive and sustainable process design. Process design examples include: developing curriculum models specifically for emerging leaders of color, developing strategies for inclusive fundraising, creating an engagement design to attract diverse views and perspectives from community members, and developing organizational strategic plans centered around equity and inclusion. 



People-centered, inclusive engagement is at the heart of what we do. EQT By Design draws community members into public activities for diverse, inclusive, and people-centered outcomes. From an organizational standpoint, we employ engagement processes that directly incorporate the voices of your organization's diverse people and perspectives to ensure your strategy is equity-centered and inclusive. Engagement examples include: focus groups, large- and small-scale surveys, interactive workshops, and community events.



EQT By Design helps organizations and communities understand how to design and implement systems change ideas to ensure inclusion and equity strategies are both relevant and sustainable. The EQT By Design model helps you actively understand where you are going, how you are ready, what you need to reach your goals, and how to sustain forward momentum.
