Frequently asked questions

What does DEI mean?

Diversity is a state of uplifting, respecting and learning from people with different lived-experiences

Equity is a principle which positions members of marginalized communities for success with ample opportunities for growth and development + universal design that welcomes all to learn, contribute and participate. 

Inclusion is the act of fostering belonging, safety, and respect in the workplace/learning environment.

Who are your founders?

Bettering was founded by a woman of colour with 10 years of experience in human rights, health equity, and gender based violence prevention in large, complex organizations. After witnessing post-secondary institutions, public sector organizations and private businesses struggle to implement effective DEI strategies, she founded Bettering.ca to produce solutions using data directly from the work/learning community.

How long do strategic planning services take?

Strategic planning services typically take 1-2 months for mid to large sized organizations (1000-20000+ employees), but can be completed sooner for smaller teams. The timeline for this service is largely dependent on the quality of data received from your organization.

What is the "accountability guarantee"?

At Bettering, all of our services come with a guarantee to remain accountable to your organization. We accomplish this by implementing monthly, mid-year and annual check-ins with your team to ensure our DEI solutions are delivering results and leading to measurable outcomes. Based on your feedback we may alter certain strategic directives or KPI’s, or return to offer additional guidance, education and coaching to your team.
