Sample Solutions

Create an Effective DEI Strategy

Create an Effective DEI Strategy

DEI strategies are imperative, yet many companies are behind, often lacking in resources and knowledge. That’s where we come in. AWE helps you define your DEI purpose and customizes an effective strategy that allows you to create a sustainable workplace and culture.

Build Strong Employee Resource Groups

Build Strong Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups provide safe environments and opportunities for underrepresented minorities to build communities. They are often managed by volunteers who are passionate but might not have the resources or experience to set strategy or programming to maximize outcomes. AWE provides tools and training that align with your business objectives to ensure the success of existing ERGs while supporting the value of community.

Establish Successful Mentor & Sponsor Programs

Establish Successful Mentor & Sponsor Programs

HR and L&D teams are frequently asked to roll-out mentor and sponsor programs in an effort to build better teams, retain talent, accelerate careers and support succession planning. An often neglected aspect of these programs is a deep understanding of behavioral and societal differences in underrepresented communities. AWE creates the framework and strategy to help you build more impactful programs and achieve optimal results.

Facilitate Manager DEI Training

Facilitate Manager DEI Training

Cultural awareness is imperative for success. But the influx of DEI conversation, initiatives and programming has caused an increase in confusion, and sometimes even fear, in managers. AWE’s LxE Training (Leading by Example) goes beyond traditional unconscious bias training and provides the safe space needed to learn and build more inclusive teams. For organizations further along in their DEI journey, the LxE interactive workshop helps to embed inclusion in day-to-day processes.

Diverse teams earn a premium

Over a period of three years, companies with higher diversity in management earned 38% more of their revenues, on average, from innovative products and services than those companies with lower diversity.
