In-person and online Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Accessibility Workshops, developed expressly for your organization, with one underlying tenet: personal growth

“DEI” has become a buzzphrase.

Organizations want to do “the right thing,” but diversity, equity, inclusivity, and accessibility are more than checklist items: they require real in-depth work, both on an organizational level and on a personal level.

We can help.

Our “All-In on Inclusivity” workshops help you to do both, with lasting effect. We’ve delivered workshops to:

  • AAA video-game studios
  • Nonprofits
  • Higher-education institutions

and more. Every single client is different, and my team and I write every workshop to address your specific needs and desired outcomes.

Our workshops

  • In-person or virtual
  • Developed especially for you and your organization
  • Discovery, onboarding, and post-mortem meetings included
  • Written reports after each workshop with recommended next steps
  • Multiple formats (multi-week; one-day; three-hour, and more)
  • Bespoke pricing for select workshops

Our team

She teaches creative nonfiction at Bay Path University and is the author of two books. She writes the monthly “Broadening the Bookshelves” feature at The Writer magazine, which aims to help us all to read more inclusively.

Michael Schmeltzer has his certificate in diversity and inclusion in leadership and organizations. He is the author of several books and Editor-in-Chief of Floating Bridge Press, a nonprofit literary arts organization whose mission is to promote the diverse voices of Washington State poets. 

A bi-racial East Asian man in a light purple shirt is sitting on a beach. He is smiling broadly, looking over his right shoulder at something. Our view of his face is three-quarters. He has a short goatee.

Dr. Shannon Compton  is a published author, librarian, and professor at Bay Path University.  She is certified in the Critical Conversations program, in which facilitators guide conversations around diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. She develops academic resources for educational institutions with DEIA in mind.

“So often with DEI workshops we focus on the tasks at hand…

I am eternally grateful to see a different perspective on how to approach these topics. I would recommend Yi Shun’s workshop to any organization that is looking to break the mold of what a DEI workshop can be.”
