Diversity, equity, and inclusion

As advisors to social impact organizations, Wellspring Consulting constantly grapples with the effects of discrimination, inequity, and exclusion, particularly as they relate to race and socioeconomic status.

We are deeply motivated by a vision of a just society, where all individuals can thrive.

In our work, this translates into:

  • Ongoing inquiry to better understand the sources of systemic inequity and effective remedies   

  • Thoughtful practice that applies an equity lens to analysis, elucidates equity issues, and seeks proactive solutions

  • Humility in the face of these complex challenges and a willingness to confront our own biases and complicity

  • Continual striving within Wellspring to recruit a talented, diverse team and ensure each member is able to bring their full selves to the work we do together
