Our Commitment

There are limitless inequities in this country that are important to acknowledge. Many of us have a practice of acknowledging the violent removal and relocation of Indigenous peoples and the forced labor of enslaved Africans. The legacies of these injustices are woven into the fabric of our society and have a longstanding impact on communities, especially in the face of climate change and its inequitable impacts. There are many marginalized identities and injustices that are invisible in our daily lives. It is critically important to acknowledge past inequities and present realities; it is more important to act. New Leaf DEI Consulting’s staff are committed to unlearning ingrained biases and integrating this into our professional and personal lives. On this page, you can see the ways we are actively working to deepen our knowledge and inform the work we do with our clients. 

The New Leaf DEI Consulting Team is dedicated to furthering our own DEI growth. Follow along with us as we continue to commit ourselves to DEI work.
