Who is it for?
What is it?
BrandEQ Black diversity services include racial and diversity research, auditing, and training. What that means is that experts at BrandEQ will delve deeper into how your business works; analyzing staff, leadership team, corporate boards, and collecting stats, such as what percentage is BIPOC, how many are women represented and more. From there, we will be able to help companies reform their policies to become more diverse and inclusive and create a more welcoming environment for potential applicants. We provide Speaking, Workshops, Racial Sensitivity Training, Sustainable Inclusion Policies and KPI’s, Grant Writing and Diversity and Inclusion Auditing.
Why is it important?
There are endless reasons as to why companies should implement diversity services into their business. A 2015 study revealed that companies with high racial and ethnic diversity among their employees outperformed their counterpart companies by 35%. But high performance rates shouldn’t be the only reason you should expand your team to include more diverse staff members — it’s simply just the right thing to do. Having a diverse workforce means having a wider range of opinions, voices, and understanding of other communities your business should appeal to. By implementing these services, not only will you increase your team, but you will have a broader understanding of why it’s important to be inclusive, and how to handle harassment in the workplace.

The value of these services
BrandEQ’s diversity services are not only incredibly important, but are incredibly valuable in the long run. There are few institutions that provide both indepth research into leadership staff to acknowledge possible inconsistencies, as well as resources and training to solve the issue. According to Harvard Business Review, Companies with “two-dimensional” diversity are 45% more likely to report that they had captured a larger portion of the market and 70% more likely to have entered into a new market in the past year. Hands-on diversity training reduces workplace harassment and improves recruitment efforts and can be an eye-opening experience for staff.
