Range Forward Movement Center
21st Century Approach to Diversity and Equity
In building the framework for this organization, I wanted to offer work that would positively impact people, organizations, and community.
Societal constructs impact each of us in individual and shared ways. I’ve chosen with compassion, grit, and focus to dig for deeper meaning in conflict, for effective ways to push through natural obstacles, and to observe the benefits of shared experiences. I'm deeply focused on complexities of the human condition and the layered entanglements of systems of power that impact opportunities, growth, and peace.
I believe...with personal alignment, compassion, and deeper understanding we can increase respectful engagements and generate Positive Productivity and Forward Movement!
These examinations and this focus birthed Range Movement Center.

Diversity & Equity
Society and the face of workplace environments are changing.
Organizations must shift how they attract and retain people.
Is your organization prepared for the changes?
Societal changes are breaking down old obstacles and creating new ones.
Technology is advancing, the social world is shrinking, and workforce demographics and demands are quickly changing.
Discrepencies in what's said and done travels quickly through social media and negatively impacts word of mouth marketing and public perception.
Organizations that properly manage diversity and equity perform better than counterparts.
What barriers do you see to continuing to develop or implement a strategy for workplace diversity and inclusion?
Middle management fails to execute diversity programs adequately
Budgetary issues prevent greater implementation
Too focused on survival in the current economy
Failure to perceive the connection between diversity & business drivers
Inadequate attention from senior leadership
Other priorities related to managing our workforce currently take precedence
We don't have any barriers to our focus on workplace diversity

than non-diverse workers because:
They don't feel part of the organization
They don't feel valued
