Frequently Asked Questions
What does DEIA mean?
DEIA stands for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility and is the foundation of our work here at Momentum Professional Strategy Partners.
Diversity includes representing a wide array of backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, and perspectives. Equity is the fair treatment, opportunities and access to resources regardless of identity. Inclusion is creating an environment of belonging -where all identities feel comfortable expressing themselves without fear of judgment. Accessibility ensures that everyone can access the same opportunities and services without additional barriers due to ability or language differences.
We believe that organizations should prioritize DEIA as a fundamental part of their organizational culture to create meaningful and lasting change that benefits their workplaces and the communities the serve. With our expertise in DEIA, we will provide you with expert guidance and support so you can embed equity, inclusion, and accessibility into the fabric of your organization.
Why is DEI data important?
DEI data is important because it provides concrete evidence of an organization’s commitment to making meaningful change in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility. DEI data helps organizations understand where they are on the journey toward creating a more equitable and inclusive workplace and can provide insight into their progress. With Momentum Professional Strategy Partners, our team of professionals are committed to helping you identify key performance indicators (KPIs) that will help measure success in these areas and ensure that your team is on track for lasting positive change.
What is an equity lens?
An equity lens is a way of looking at the world from an intersectional point of view. It allows us to understand how our identities, such as race, gender, and ability can affect access to resources, opportunities and power. At Momentum Professional Strategy Partners, we use this lens to examine organizations’ cultures and operations. This helps us uncover disparities and areas where progress can be made to ensure equitable outcomes for all stakeholders.
What does it mean to lead with an equity lens?
Leading with an equity lens means viewing and assessing situations through the lens of inclusion, diversity and accessibility. It also involves recognizing that everyone has a unique set of experiences and perspectives that should be taken into account when making decisions or formulating strategies. At Momentum Professional Strategy Partners, we focus on helping organizations embrace this mindset so they can create cultures of inclusion, equity, and accessibility for their teams and the communities they serve.
