What is Anti-Oppression Consulting?
DIVERSITY asks "Who is in the room?"
INCLUSIVITY asks "Who is at the decision-making table and do they feel they belong?"
EQUITY asks "How are power and resources in the organization distributed, internally and externally?"
These principles alone are important, but this knowledge by itself is insufficient to achieve the systemic change and self-correcting processes organizations require.
The solution is anti-oppression: a lens that incorporates not only diversity, equity, and inclusivity principles, but also social, political, and economic theory, philosophy, historical perspectives, and community engagement. Anti-oppression asks us what and who we care about, what effects our people before they enter the workplace, whose stories and experiences remain unheard, and examines not only internal policy, but external policy, work products, systems change, and organizational allyship.
Regan uses empathy, humor, and surgical precision to discuss typically difficult topics.
She creates an environment of curiosity and mutual respect so that people are engaged and eager to grow. She trains people from all backgrounds and knowledge levels, focusing on the concept of oppression and how we can identify and resist it, together.
