Corporate Offerings

You know that the highest performing teams are the most cognitively and demographically diverse. However, the challenges of maintaining a diverse workforce are real. Inclusive leaders partner with Nourish to cultivate cross-cultural relationships and drive long-term DEI solutions

Our Approach

Nourish works collaboratively and through an intersectional lens with Corporate Advocates to promote equitable, anti-racist work environments. Using equity design principles, we practice inclusion by co-creating company culture with employees who have traditionally been the most excluded. We start small, ideate, prototype, and test, making DEI initiatives accessible, adaptable, and doable.

Learning Experiences

Breaking away from the traditional classroom model, Nourish offers action-based, human-centered learning experiences. We work with innovative teams to strengthen communication skills, develop emotional intelligence, and model more inclusive behavior. Training doesn’t have to be boring—we believe learning should be an embodied experience.

Consulting Services

Nourish delivers DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion) consulting services to organizations committed to cultural change. Blending methods from design thinking and action learning, Nourish is a strategic partner to companies that regard DEI as a source of competitive advantage, and specifically as a key enabler of growth.
