What policies can you help us with?
ALG can provide support in developing or reviewing a number of organizational policies, including sexual harassment and respect at work, PSEA, anti-discrimination and other DEI-related policies.
We need to develop a DEI complaints mechanism. Can you help us with this?
Yes! This is ALG’s core expertise and passion area. We can support you to develop a new mechanism or revise your existing one in areas including sexual harassment and respect at work, PSEA, and anti-discrimination. We also provide ongoing advisory support to ensure your mechanisms are accessible, transparent, survivor-centred, trauma-informed and equitable in addition to capacity-building so that your leaders are equipped to handle complaints.
Do you provide legal advice?
No, ALG does not provide legal advice. We do however, draw on expertise to offer policy and advisory consulting services to identify strengths and gaps of DEI and PSEA-related policies from an inclusive good practice lens. We can work closely with your in house counsel.
Do you conduct investigations?
No, ALG’s focus is on prevention and response. We can provide informal conflict resolution, however, not as a standalone service. We are well-networked internationally to provide referrals to excellent experts.
Do you provide anti-racism training?
With regards to diversity and inclusion, our expertise lies in anti-harassment, gender equity with a DEI lens, and gender-based violence prevention.
Through partnership with Learning Snippets, ALG can refer you to evidence and behaviour-based DEI micro-learning on various topics, including respect in the workplace co-created with ALG, in addition to inclusivity 101, anti-black racism and inclusive leadership and more, vetted through subject matter experts with lived experience. We can also refer you to excellent anti-racism trainers.
How does pricing work?
Pricing works on a scale depending on factors including the nature of work, sector, budget, timing, length of the work and expertise required. Costs are generally provided holistically per project as opposed to a daily or hourly rate.
ALG aims to strike a balance between providing accessible services to organizations with limited resources, while ensuring fair compensation, something important for folks doing equity work.
How long are workshops?
ALG offers a variety of customized workshop options, and facilitated sessions, keynotes, and inspiring, interactive presentations that provide best practice tips, strategies for teams to implement your policies, develop equitable relations and inclusive behaviours. Generally, ALG full workshops deal with sensitive subject matter and will require a minimum of two-two and a half hours to build safety, trust, and to allow space for practical group work to apply learning. The ALG 2022-2023 workshop catalogue is available upon request.
ALG offers shorter options including complementary bite-size behaviour-based microlearning and debrief sessions and/or presentations ranging from one-three hours. Presentations of one to one and a half hours are a special ALG offering, offering opportunities for larger audiences to build awareness. They are offered on an as needed basis, in consideration of each organizational context.
