Strategic Planning+ is an approach to strategic planning that incorporates racial equity & gender inclusion training into the planning process. Oftentimes organizations or agencies are ready to create or revisit their strategic plan while centering inclusion and diversity. How do you do this in a meaningful and transformative way that can strengthen internal relationships (team building, communication) and align intended impacts (e.g. improving access to services, increasing awareness, removing barriers to resources/education) with the programs and projects they currently host or are planning to implement?

 

Our team has developed Strategic planning + based on our skills and experience in leading Strategic Doing processes and strategic planning sessions to set goals/benchmarks, guided meditation/introspection, providing historical analyses of race/gender, and story-telling. We offer this process as a way to center inclusion and diversity into team building and then reflect and align the mission/vision/actions that organizations are prioritizing in their strategic plan.

 

Strategic Planning+ is carried out in 4 sessions and include coordination meetings with directors/boards/executive teams:
