This is the foundation of our work and is highly recommended for BERC-Client partnerships. Includes a program-wide review of equity and inclusion alongside assessment of community context, data and climate using interviews/focus groups, observation, document review and analysis. Clients receive a written report summarizing key findings and recommendations. This process follows the triangulated case study model Dr. Bleasdale used for her doctoral research, a proven methodology reviewing lived experience, policy and practice. Remote and in-person options available.
BERC's Educational Consultants will coach and mentor to prepare individuals for mission-based leadership for organizational change. Sessions are customized based on the interests and contexts of the individual, through self-review, reflection and building a plan of action. We believe leadership is about: knowing who we are and how we impact change; knowing who our people are and what they need to be effective change makers; and knowing the reasons and routes for change in our communities. Remote and in-person options available.
BERC will support your team/organization with professional development rooted in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB). Workshops are customized to meet clients' particular contexts and evolving needs and focus on Culture and Climate.
