5 Reasons Equity Initiatives Fail 

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Are you watching?

If you look at the news and I am sure you're seeing a failure of leadership everywhere.


From Governor Cuomo to Haiti in is a lot!

And as we go into what seems to be an increase of COVID, stress is high and emotions are's a perfect recipe for disaster.

I've been there...

I led equity initiatives when I was new and didn't understand how to go about the leading this work in the midst of COVID and Black Lives Matter protests. 

On top of that, we shockingly found out Daniel Prude died while I was leading an equity initiative with the city; tension with community and stress internally was palpable with no guidebook on what to do. And I want to help you not repeat some of the same mistakes.


You should attend this training if:


Your resources are limited and you can't afford to waste them


You want to ensure your equity initiative succeeds in the face of great odds (Look at where we at now. We can't afford to continue like we have)


You understand that the stakes are high and your reputation is on the line

So here's the deal I’ve been doing advocacy work for over 20 years. 

I have worked with nonprofits, healthcare professionals, and even municipal leaders so I have seen all types of initiatives and what works and what does not. I have also taken beaucoup (that’s fancy for “a lot”) leadership development courses/classes/seminars and often they miss these key things to create sustainable equity initiatives.

And we all want to have sustainable initiatives, right? I don’t know about you but I love when folk share what went wrong and give practical tips on how to not repeat those mistakes. 

During this webinar I'm going share five costly mistakes that derail equity initiatives. You never see these things coming if you don't know what you're looking for. This could be the most valuable 90 minutes you'll spend so sign up now!
