Diversity & Inclusion: Audits & Analytics
To properly assess the ground we need to cover during our diversity, equity, and inclusion journey, we need to have a clear understanding of our starting position.
The purpose of diversity audits is to provide an objective and independent examination of the current state of an organization. By conducting diversity audits, we increase confidence and reduce risk, consequently maximizing financial return on investment (ROI) and opportunities for growth.
Inclusifyy provides diversity audits so organizations can diagnose, assess and benchmark their current state. This allows us to then build a customized diversity, equity and inclusion plan of action for your organization.
You don’t need to be a hostage to the present.
Be a diversity & inclusion leader who capitalizes on
diversity, equity, and inclusion to remain
relevant and innovative.
"Not everything that is faced can be changed,
but nothing can be changed until it is faced."
Don’t struggle alone.
Inclusifyy will help you build a diverse workforce
and create an inclusive workplace culture.
Prioritize diversity and inclusion to create a high-performing
and resilient workforce equipped to attend to tomorrow’s challenges.
Diverse workforces accomplish more:
The ability to innovate increases by 83%.
Responsiveness to changing customer needs increases by 31%.
Team collaboration increases by 42%.
A diverse workforce is less vulnerable to change. By building a truly inclusive organization, you can foster a culture of adaptive resilience, enabling your staff to add value and competitiveness to your community. This will encourage social cohesion, enhance economic vitality, foster cultural belonging, drive innovation, and promote creativity.

"The Inclusifyy training I received from Amanda Fernandez was core-changing. By this I mean, it transformed the core of my values which forever-changed my thoughts and actions. I came to the course owning I had personal biases as well as knowing that, on more than a few occasions, I had remained a silent bystander during racist situations. I came to the course wanting to learn how to become a better person but quickly realized that I really just wanted to learn how to feel better about the person that I was. Amanda called me on that—she respectfully and consistently pushed back until I came face-to-face (literally, while looking at myself in the reflection of my computer screen) with how much I needed to learn, relearn, and most critical to me…unlearn. I unlearned that being “not racist” is what people need to strive for; I relearned that my say:do ratio is critical to ending racism; and I learned I must actively be an anti-racist each and every minute of each and every day. It is not enough to want to be better—I need to do better. And Amanda is the one to guide the way to truly achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion not only in our workplaces, but also within our homes and neighbourhoods and across our shared world and its communities"
Director at Spruce Grove Public Library
