Consulting

Since early on in our organizational development, people have been inspired by our work and have asked us to teach them how our model works. We provide fee-for-service consulting in the VISIONS model of diversity and inclusion, communication across difference, and creating successful multicultural teams.

Example Content Areas

  • Uses VISIONS model for diversity and inclusion
  • Psycho-social training model that increases self-awareness and effective communication in cross-cultural teams resulting in greater team work and efficiency in diverse teams, greater capacity to build and retain diverse teams, and greater capacity to create equitable systems within an organization.
  • Communication concepts include recognizing “intent versus impact” and noticing “process and content,” or what, how and why we say something and how people respond.

Impact
“I feel like I have learned what interpersonal prejudices I have inadvertently held, and Grow Dat has helped me combat some of those behaviors.”

“Grow Dat Youth Farm has not only taught me about the issues facing the New Orleans community, but given me the tools to change those issues and better our city.”
