Nathan Baptiste has proven himself to be a talented coach, consultant and guide to our Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion work. His well informed and life experienced approach lead to effective, interactive and engaging all-staff training, and issues specific equity-driven advising. He is well skilled in facilitating meaningful conversations, applying learnings in the most relevant ways, and in navigating groups into understanding how, why and where disparities show up. He helped move us to apply an ongoing equity lens for assessing conditions present in the workplace, to identify steps toward dismantling systems and ways of thinking and working that propagate inequities, and to establish equity guidelines for all our activities going forward. Nathan has the ability to encourage positive, albeit challenging change. His talents include the ability to draw out and name individual and corporate actions that can be addressed, for leading into a more inclusive work environment, as well as advising on planning and implementing strategic steps needed to reach more equitable outcomes. Nathan brings a wealth of resources to facilitate and promote learning and understanding, including insightful research, eye-opening and relatable training materials and useful principles to adopt permanently. I highly recommend Nathan and his firm, EDI Mindfulness.
