The Darkest Horse™ represents people like us!
The Darkest Horse represents people who have been marginalized and/or underestimated based on their intersectional identities -- women, racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+, veterans, people with disabilities, neurodiverse, formerly incarcerated, immigrants, first-generation students, just to name a few -- who have resiliently turned their adversities into their competitive advantage and are on their way to winning the race!
We work from the inside out to go beyond where traditional DEIA consultants do by focusing on internal culture and ways of working AND helping you infuse inclusion principles into what you create -- your products, services and offerings
How we do it:
Self-awareness, emotional regulation, and the ability to understand others are critical skills for internalizing inclusive norms, and for inspiring transformative leadership.
Trauma can range from an interpersonal to a sociopolitical experience. Oppression (and specifically racism) is an example of both. In order to engage people from a wide range of identities, we must understand how trauma affects challenging topics like identity and systems of inequity.
We partner with organizations that seek to go beyond the status quo to envision and actualize possibilities for the world we seek to create.
