We are a collective of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion change-makers focused on supporting public and private organizations in reaching their potential.
Our approach acknowledges that diversity exists naturally and operationalizing equity allows for this natural diversity to flourish, while creating systems and policies that honor both diversity and equity results in inclusion and belonging.
We are educators, system builders, and community connectors.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
What is DEI?
Diversity is no longer just a buzzword in the workplace—it’s part of a bigger, more complex movement that involves active engagement and commitment. Focusing effort on understanding and implementing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices in your everyday business operations is a way of showing up for those who feel unheard and unseen. This may require changes in how you do business and how you support employees, so it’s not an easy task.
Our approach acknowledges that diversity exists naturally in the world and operationalizing the removal of barriers allows for this natural diversity to flourish. We can walk alongside you to create systems to support an organizational culture that honors diversity and results in belonging and inclusion. Oftentimes, businesses will hire a DEI consultant to walk with them through that process—that’s where we come in.
Here at Construct the Present, we provide a variety of personal and professional development opportunities to boost organization culture and cohesion. We do this by creating honest, internal dialogue that promotes reflection, active listening, and accessible education. Our training will help you and your team unpack common definitions, systems, and frameworks while building core values that can be applied to your regular operations. We will help you examine your internal biases about race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities in a safe, trusted environment. Our strategy involves breaking down barriers by inspiring empathetic and diverse perspectives from you and your team. After completing DEI education, we assist you in adopting practices that promote more inclusive business practices to set you on the right path for the future.

Recognizing diversity and systemizing inclusion within your organization will better prepare you to reach out and support diverse communities around you.
