What if…

you could easily provide your workforce – big or small – with an introductory understanding of how empathy and allyship can be used to create a culture truly inclusive of people from traditionally marginalized groups?

How It Works

REWIRE equips teams and groups of any size with foundational concepts around inclusion and empathy, positioning your organization for longer-term success in meeting DEI and culture goals.

Through social/online learning and habit-building, we ask participants to reflect and build muscles that help them be more self-aware and in-tune with daily opportunities for empathy and allyship.
