Communication Strategies for a Better World

Sagely works with organizations to assess their internal and external messaging, to determine ways to improve workplace interactions, and to train employees about effective communication strategies. We specialize in the fields of gender equity, antiracism, and accessibility, and often work with groups on targeted topics. Our services range from helpful clarity conversations to strategy recommendations and content creation.

Promoting Racial Justice

We are experiencing a cultural shift that many have never seen in their lifetimes. Businesses and organizations that are not used to speaking about racial justice have lots of questions about how to move forward. While this moment might seem surprisingly new and fast-moving, what we’re doing right now is recognizing a long history of injustice and inequality. There is no clear roadmap, but there is a genuine determination to make things better. What role can you, your organization, or your business play in bringing that better future to fruition? Your role may be small, but it is essential. And you should tell people about it honestly, with humility, and with hope. 

Drawing on her academic expertise and personal commitment to racial justice, Sagely founder Lesley Curtis is offering clarity calls to help you make sense of the moment, find your voice, identify your mission, and move forward with confidence.

Gender Equity

“The Future is Female,” or so the t-shirt says. It’s a cultural rallying cry that has and will have implications far and wide, from #MeToo posts on social media to CBS boardroom discussions. Rethinking gender, moving past old assumptions and biases, and adopting a more equitable perspective on the future are pressing issues in today’s cultural landscape. How can you prepare? Sagely’s Gender Equity program offers concrete steps you can take to keep your organization in step with the times. Our skillfully crafted curriculum, person-centered approach, and unique expertise empower managers and employees with the knowledge, perspective, and confidence needed to create more positive and productive work environments for everyone.

Sagely consultants, Lesley Curtis and Jessica Martucci, work closely with multiple organizations to provide a safe, open, and non-judgmental space to discuss how social assumptions, power dynamics, and biases can impact workplace culture and community relationships. Promoting and improving gender equity within your organization increases employee retention rates and boosts customer satisfaction.

Ensuring Accessibility

Accessibility, inclusivity, diversity—these are more than just trendy buzz words, they speak to a set of core human values rooted in the idea that every person has something unique and valuable to bring to the table. Today, disability directly affects over 12% of Americans and studies show that one-third of working-age adults will become disabled for at least 90 days before they reach retirement. Disabilities impact people in many different ways, changing how people move around, how they learn and communicate, and shaping how they interact with others.

Organizations are increasingly recognizing the untapped potential of a more inclusive workforce and company culture. Our Accessibility Program is led by Sagely consultant, Jessica Martucci, who specializes in solutions that workplaces can provide to ease the challenges that people with disabilities face in education, healthcare settings, and at work. Sagely helps your organization identify and ask the right questions about access and inclusion, setting you on a path towards a more productive, empowered, and creative workforce.
