What's beyond diversity statements & rainbow stickers? How can you better support queer, trans, and gender diverse communities?

Kate has introduced me to a radical inclusivity that would have never crossed my mind... she has the gentle ability to call us in to reflect on our own inherent biases, especially in a time where call-out culture can be so toxic. You can tell from working with her that she deeply cares about what she does; the attention to detail in her innovative resources make the work we need to do so simple and straightforward."

Let's work together

We all want to better serve our communities and make an impact, while still maintaining a thriving business, service, or organization. It can be difficult to know where to begin or how to shift our practices to be more affirming of queer, trans, and gender diverse identities and expressions. Private consultation can explore a range of topics and questions, including the following:

  • A comprehensive review of relevant policies and forms, as well as website, social media, & communications

  • Discuss what you feel is needed in your workplace or organization to support a queer, trans, and gender diverse affirming culture.


  • Resources, practical solutions, and strategies (everything from bathroom signage and pronoun use to inclusive language and forms)

  • Collective problem-solving to address barriers to change


Consultation is charged by the hour. Please get in touch to discuss options.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

It is crucial to acknowledge and respect the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). "Calgary" is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. Acknowledging the land that we live and work on is one small step towards ongoing reconciliation and decolonization.
