Real inclusion requires real adjustment
Through our work with women’s initiative leaders, diversity & inclusion representatives and human resources pros across industries, we’ve found a common thread:
A critical factor impacting the representation of women in the workplace is a truly inclusive environment—supported at the top and enforced at every level.
Gild Collective trainings provide understanding, direction and motivation for your organization’s diversity & inclusion practices. We take into account all diversity dimensions, recognizing the unique needs that come with identity and intersectionality. By involving key stakeholders, we ensure that your inclusion initiative is supported by executives who recognize why a more diverse workforce critical for long-term success.
Our leadership trainings cover diverse and vital topics:
UNCOVERING UNCONSCIOUS BIAS: In this session, we’ll provide participants with the opportunity to discover, explore and understand their unconscious biases—where did they come from, and how can we accept their presence without letting them drive our key decisions? How have these biases impacted our decisions and actions thus far, and how can we interrupt them going forward? Learn more >
CHAMPIONING WOMEN: In this introductory training, we’ll develop key strategies specific to your organization that offer guidelines for being an ally to female employees. The basic strategies provided in this session can be carried on to build networks of support for other marginalized groups. Learn more >
SEXUAL HARASSMENT + ENGAGED BYSTANDERS: With the current climate surrounding sexual misconduct, many are questioning what they can do to combat sexual harassment in their own organizations. Together, we identify opportunities to support as engaged bystanders and create positive, proactive company cultures. Learn more >
OVERCOMING GENDER NORMATIVE CULTURE: Gender norms play a powerful role in our society and therefore, our organizations. Understanding, acceptance, and support of individuals who identify outside of gender normative guidelines is growing, however, many individuals still do not feel safe within their workplaces. In this training, we will explore the impacts of gender norms within our organizational cultures, as well as design strategies and inclusive language to support employees all along the gender spectrum.

Words of Affirmation
"Gild Collective has been an instrumental part of helping us build our women’s initiative. To help us kick off this initiative, Gild Collective presented an implicit bias training to our leadership team. Before the training, Gild Collective set aside time to listen to the issues we were facing within our firm and then customized a program to facilitate meaningful discussions on issues that needed to be addressed. This presentation not only helped lay the foundation to launch our women’s initiative, but also brought awareness of implicit bias to our leadership group. This training continues to spark important conversations throughout all levels of the firm."
