The Shift® Culture and Strategy
Organization-wide Culture and DEI strategy
As the CEO or leader in your organization, you’ve seen firsthand the shifts that have taken place in the workplace over the last few years.
From the ongoing pandemic to shifts in how and where people work best, your organization is faced with the question:
How do we build a truly inclusive culture that lasts?
You want your organization to be a place where everyone can thrive — and where diversity, equity, and inclusion are centered. But you know that “simple” DEI policies and enforcement aren’t enough. Having multiple DEI consultants, creating a committte, or even hiring a DEI officer on staff hasn’t worked.
That’s because you need a strategy, one that ensures DEI is embedded at the very center of your organization, and you need buy-in and engagement across the entire organization.
How do you do that?
By making a Shift®️.
How the Shift® Accelerator works
We’ve crafted our DEI accelerator to be a year-long program that shifts your organization from one that lacks a people-focused culture… and turns it into an organization with a business culture where people want to stay.
Over the course of one year together, we’ll work across your entire organization to create a culture shift while also teaching you the strategies and tools to sustain the shift beyond this current moment in time.
Plus, rather than spending money on different programs, hiring more employees, or a revolving door of consultants, you can pay for one program and get the foundation your organization needs.
Less cost, more impact.

What to expect in
Our focus is on whole-systems change, which means that your entire team will be engaged in this comprehensive program.
You’ll be assigned a dedicated partner from the TIP team. This ensures continuity and a deeper understanding of your organization.
Set the time for your organization’s work to take place over the course of the program. During this time, different groups across your organization will engage in “the work.”
You will always know when learning spaces are happening, and the work is spread out across the organization so that everyone participates without taking too much of their time.
The First Sprint
Once you’ve established your Shift® learning times, your organization will spend the first couple of months of our partnership focusing on…
Deeply understanding what it means to embed DEI as a core value and strategy, not an initiative or program.
Developing your Culture Shift Vision Statement, principles, and positioning approach.
Evaluating which efforts are already supporting a positive culture and how to build on them.
Customizing your roadmap, learning, and implementation strategies so everyone is engaged.
The roadmap we provide during your onboarding will give you a strategy for the next two years — but you can begin to see changes as soon as you have a target to move toward.
The timeline for The Shift® Accelerator
The work your organization wants to do is not an overnight project. Building an inclusive culture takes time and dedication. But we have the roadmap to help you make DEI truly impactful and sustainable.
That’s why the Accelerator is a 1-year program, with an option to extend into a second year for deeper implementation work with us.

Your work as a DEI-centered organization is never done. Once you’ve got your cultural foundations and cross-department change initiated, it’s time to develop a plan for impact. How is the work you’re doing positively impacting your employees, your organization, and those it serves?
This is where the strategy and culture piece of your DEI strategy shifts — into impact and measurement.
Why is the Shift® Accelerator a 1-year process?
We recognize culture work can’t be done overnight. So do you.
Your organization’s commitment to its people and its culture is not short-lived, and you understand the amount of work that goes into creating a deep and long-lasting impact.
It’s time for a shift in your organization, and we’re here to help you do the real, lasting work.
