Workplaces continue to struggle with sexual harassment, violence and discrimination. Traditional approaches have focused on checking boxes, and telling folks what NOT to do.
I know from experience, and being a lawyer working with victims, these approaches have not worked. We need a new approach.
This is what I do.
I help organizations with reporting policies, processes, training and thought leadership on how to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and violence, building more respect and gender equity at work, using a human, heart-centred and trauma-informed approach.
ALG’s model and approach takes off where more traditional approaches end, helping both employees and leaders learn to respond, rather than react to complaints and problematic behaviour.
If you are struggling with how to prevent sexual harassment and want a more respectful, inclusive organization, contact me today.
Founder & Principal Facilitator/Consultant
Adriana has provided outstanding support to UN Women interventions related to sexual harassment prevention work in Georgia. She has a unique ability to understand different contexts and has demonstrated excellence in working cross sector with diverse stakeholders. Her approach has contributed to tangible results in the implementation of sexual harassment policy and procedures within partner organizations, and an overall improvement of the practice in the country.
We loved working with ALG on the Building a Culture of Respect workshop. Adriana has a magical approach to make people feel comfortable. She empowered us to be more inclusive, and her knowledge and expertise was valuable to all of us!
Adriana’s human-centered and action-oriented approach to creating safe workplaces is transformational. She challenges leaders to step back from the typical ‘let’s just get it done’ approach to hold space for complex conversations. Adriana facilitates these conversations in a way that leaders are empowered to make decisions based on what fits best for their organizational mission and values. If you are serious about cultivating a healthy, inclusive organizational culture, working with Adriana is a must as she helps you do the work well the first time around.
Cooperation with Adriana was one of the Gender Department’s most successful experiences with an international expert. Her approach motivated us to continuously learn and improve our work. I would highly recommend ALG!
Working with Adriana was a wholesome, positive, empowering and enlightening experience. She’s on one hand very professional and efficient, and the other very kind, available, patient and human-centered. She will take the time to understand your needs and go to the root of the problem. Through her guidance, we developed tools to prevent and respond to sexual violence for our organization and the Canadian aid sector. I strongly recommend her for all your DEI + PSEAH needs.
Adriana is an outstanding facilitator. Digna had the opportunity to work together with her on the French PSEA Summer School 2021. We are grateful for her knowledge and energy. She also helped us develop a tool to support survivors of sexual exploitation and abuse. She brings great ideas and is excellent at researching and writing in simple language.
ALG’s workshop on Individual and Collective Wellbeing was a gamechanger. It made our group consider how we can improve our relationship with our work and each other for our overall wellness objectives.
Adriana was an incredible asset to ASFA’s Task Force to eliminate racial and sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence.
Her experience in the legal world and survivor-centric approach fostered thoughtful, progressive discussions. Adriana is also a lovely person to work with, who brought support, creativity, and warmth to our community.
Working with Adriana was an absolute pleasure. Her invaluable expertise has been instrumental to achieving positive results for our Women and Gender Equality Canada-funded project. Adriana is an agile professional who is invested in her clients’ success.
Adriana’s depth of knowledge in the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse along with her facilitation and interpersonal skills, were huge assets; she was fantastic in modifying techniques to provide maximum value.
Working with Adriana was the best choice for our (DEI-related) project. She was efficient, concise, diligent and knowledgeable. She took the time to discuss questions and concerns, provide well-thought-out feedback, and engaged with our organization in a meaningful and positive way to ensure completion of the project.
