Consulting For Non-Profit Organizations & Businesses:
Positive Space Consulting loves to work with organizations large and small to help answer or discuss any questions or content related to creating or maintaining a Positive Space in your workplace!
We are here to help! We believe that there is no job too small and question to silly! Our services can be as casual as a conversation around accessibility and inclusivity of your current practices or as formal as an audit of your entire organization's policies and procedures.
This process requires communication, collaboration and will result in an environment where all employees and customers feel more comfortable. Research indicates that when LGBTQ+ employees feel included and valued and safe, they are more productive at work. Additional benefits include: Expanding of your customer base, improvement of retention of quality candidates in hiring process (attracting top talent), and improved company reputation and brand equity through awareness of a business that puts its inclusive principles into practice.
Certification and Training
We take a different approach to LGBTQ+ inclusion and diversity training by customizing our training. Without the personalization and connection, diversity training can feel unrelated to the work your front-line staff do daily.
Our focus is to personalize training to ensure the content is relatable and valuable. To prevent the training from seeming broad and abstract, we specialize in providing real-life, practical scenarios for your employees to play out, ask questions throughout and truly learn from. Our training is collaborative, arts-based, relevant and innovative. We have unique training to reinvent and question traditional methods of facilitating and teaching using art-based techniques and an anti-oppressive lens. This approach is what sets PSC's Positive Space Training apart.
We have a deep understanding and commitment to making education and learning relevant, accessible and impactful.
Scheduling is flexible to meet your unique needs, and we endeavour to accommodate your timeline and requirements wherever possible. We require 2.5-3.5 hours to complete our certification training. This certification provides each employee with a certificate and your business with a Positive Space Certification window decal to proudly display your commitment to diversity.
Custom packages with or without consulting available, contact for more information.
Our team is made up of Masters level experts in education, diversity and inclusion!
