Designing Employee Leave Policies that Reflect Our Values

Action Learning is a core methodology I use to help teams and organizations utilize their intercultural learning to make concrete systemic changes to support their diversity, inclusion and equity goals. An example of the process and outcome of this Action Learning work is reflected in the following blog post published by one of the teams with whom I worked at the Barr Foundation.

“Over the last several years, the Barr Foundation has been on a journey to center equity in all we do, from our grantmaking to our organizational practices. Many of our colleagues have reported on the steps Barr is taking to transform our grantmaking policies and practices. We want to turn the spotlight inward and share some work we have done to change a set of internal policies. We are two members of a staff-led task force charged with examining our employee leave policies through a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
