Calling All Allies Project
A Starting Point for Professionals & Organizations Committed to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
ready to create an inclusive organization?
DEI initiatives should ignite unity, not cause division or make any one group feel inferior to another. Our methodology, process, and organizational development framework helps organizations:
Identify equity gaps and barriers
Create systems and processes of accountability
Attract diverse employees and members
Connect DEI initiatives to measurable goals
Create an overall culture of inclusion
Don't make the mistake of trying to do DEI on your own. One critical misstep and your organization could lose its credibility, and its employee and customer trust.
ignite workplace unity
The Calling All Allies Project helps talent acquisition, HR, DEI and business leaders develop simple high impact strategies to quickly and purposefully improve the equity, diversity, and inclusion of their organization. We are disrupting the DEI space by throwing out the old playbook that assumes "unconscious bias" training and "diversity committees" alone will do the job.
Our team is consistently collecting real-time insights from organizational leaders around the world who help us iterate our methods to stay on the cutting edge of our DEI work. Watch a clip from our most recent global leadership forum (below) which focused on racial equity.
Interactive DEI Workshops
Stop hosting "town hall" meetings to let people vent without providing a framework for constructive discussion. Stay away from panels designed to have people relive past trauma in the name of "teaching" others about their experience. Check out our interactive DEI workshops that will ignite workplace unity and provide your team with the baseline knowledge required to become an ally for various dimensions of diversity.

Release Date: September 19th
In "Authentic Ally: A Guilt-free Guide to Becoming an Ally for Racial Equity", Dr. Brandi Baldwin, founder of the Calling All Allies Project, challenges professionals and organizational leaders to reflect critically about why they want to step up as allies for racial equity.
In this practical and instructional text, Dr. Brandi outlines why the current state of DEI is in crisis as she illuminates the unseen barriers that will stop sustainable progress in the workplace. She exposes the ugly truth about why "unconscious bias" and "anti-racism" trainings have failed, and calls out self-proclaimed "allies" who ironically exhibit exclusionary behavior in the name of inclusion.
Dr. Brandi makes it clear right at the beginning of the book that,"You can do DEI the easy way or the right way. Keep in mind that your choice demonstrates just how much of an ally you really are."

The Calling All Allies "Culture and Conversation" experience exceeded my expectations for a candid and educational learning experience. Our facilitator, Dr. Baldwin, made it possible for participants to be comfortable in a group setting which allowed for breakthroughs and brain sharing instead of only brainstorming.

The Calling All Allies dialogue session was an exercise in empathy, listening and taking a deeper dive into the Platinum Rule – Seek to understand. It was a great opportunity to learn how we can listen first and then support our African American neighbors, family members, coworkers and friends in tapping into America’s Greatest Natural Resource – Diversity.
Thank you to the Calling All Allies team! I really appreciated the opportunity to be a part of that conversation. Many valuable takeaways!

As a D&I professional, I felt overwhelmed with the inability to find a safe space to promote dialogue and receive insight. The Calling All Allies team offered, for me, something more than any training would; they offered a network and a forum to be able to support one another and tackle our DEI obstacles.
