Long-range Planning and Strategy

When it comes to diversity and inclusion, leaders today need to design strategic plans that address the needs of their organizations while ensuring alignment with changing priorities.

The right strategic plan provides a well-defined roadmap for achieving goals and objectives. To help Duke leaders achieve this, the Office for Institutional Equity offers diversity and inclusion strategy development for teams, departments, and schools that are striving to align their overall work environments with the Duke core values, guiding principles, and diversity statement.

Services include:

  • Diversity, inclusion, and belonging strategy design
  • Climate needs assessment
  • Implementation of strategy
  • Retreat facilitation
  • Team building and coaching

We help teams, groups, and organizations better understand and identify climate needs through a range of assessment tools, including surveys, questionnaires, interviews, and focus groups.

Team building, coaching, and consultation services provide our partners and clients with the opportunity to engage in a series of discussions and activities that help cultivate a climate of trust, inclusion and belonging.
