In which areas of Los Angeles will you be directly working?

County of Los Angeles

City of Los Angeles

What is the problem that you are seeking to address?

We are seeking to address the retention rates of underrepresented and marginalized populations (Women, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+) in private and public institutions and workplaces. I'd like to run a county wide assessment and provide employees with a platform that helps to increase education and retention. Turnover within the workplace and within public and private institutions is costing our economies billions of dollars a year. It is also harming the potential for underrepresented populations to build generational wealth.

Describe the project, program, or initiative that this grant will support to address the problem identified.

Inclusology is a powerful SaaS platform using demographic data to conduct DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) assessments to analyze, report, benchmark, and recommend solutions for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The company produces/provides the following products/services: DEI question banks, analytics assessments, benchmarking page, automated strategic planning and direct access to industry professionals. The project would launch a citywide assessment that helps us to gauge the root cause of discrimination and build solutions to make our workplaces and educational institutions a more equitable place to live and thrive.
