Building equitable organizations

Create inclusive opportunities. Prioritize transparency.

Finding and hiring exceptional leaders is one thing. Keeping them is another. Building an environment where they and their teams can thrive is crucial to your organization’s success. We help you take a closer look at the ways you manage talent to identify your key strengths and weaknesses based on equitable best practices. The goal is to create a more inclusive and welcoming culture where career opportunities and the path to advancement are clearly understood and available to all.

Offerings

We administer and report on an organization-wide survey to identify loyalty, attrition and retention factors as well as equity and opportunity gaps.

We uncover the principles, policies, procedures, and expectations that guide all talent programs at your organization and ensure all staff are equally set up for fulfillment and success.

Performance management: We work with your team to clarify what you include (and don’t include) in evaluating staff performance, build tools and establish a cadence for giving formal feedback, and determine how underperformance is consistently addressed.

Coaching & development: We develop clear career pathways by defining job levels, responsibilities, and competencies as well as professional development and promotion policies that provide all staff with equal opportunities for advancement.

Organizational structure: We refine your organization structure to solve for breakdowns in decision making and communication, address opportunity gaps, and facilitate more effective manager coaching.

We equip managers to understand your new policies and programs, providing trainings and toolkits to ensure they are able to evaluate and communicate with staff clearly, consistently and without bias.

Our process

1

EQUITY ASSESSMENT

We combine qualitative conversations across the organization with a quantitative analysis of opportunity gaps to identify priorities for more equitably managing talent.

2

PHILOSOPHY DESIGN

We wrestle with the big questions first—such as what you believe about autonomy and accountability—to ensure decisions are grounded in your values.

3

STRUCTURE DESIGN

We apply your philosophy to the current state of your organization, defining performance management processes and criteria; clarifying career pathways and professional development opportunities; and refining your organizational structure.

4

IMPLEMENTATION SUPPORT

We help you roll out new programs transparently by equipping managers with training and toolkits and ensuring all staff members are provided with consistent and clear information.

Case studies

Our work often requires rapid responses due to the nature of helping activists who are at risk. We’re grateful to Edgility for helping us slow down and take a step back to assess the health of our organization from a salary, equity, and performance perspective. It’s important that we reward our employees for their brave work. We look forward to continuing to partner with Edgility to develop and improve our internal systems.

Put your values to work. Act on equity.

We believe equity isn’t a box to check. It’s a daily action. Someone’s unique identity isn’t something to overcome–when paired with the right opportunity, it becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We exist to empower social impact organizations to recognize and overcome unconscious bias, racism and sexism so they can build a workforce that reflects and strengthens the communities they serve.
