How it works

Diversity without inclusion is not enough. InclusionBoston offers a variety of services that help advance diversity, equity, and inclusion within organizations. DE&I services can be delivered online, in person, or as a combination tailored to an organization’s specific needs. YW Boston’s DE&I services include:

• Organizational assessment and process design

• In-person and online workshops targeted at specific inclusion goals

• Dialogue-based sessions empowering individuals and groups to take positive action with pre- and post-program assessments

Leadership development

• A community of practice, including forums and a knowledge base on best practices in D&I



InclusionBoston is priced on a sliding scale based on organizational size and sector. Please contact Sheera Bornstein at for more information or to discuss scheduling a consultation.
