Organizational culture can be either inclusive or exclusive. We can help your company and its personnel to become a driving force for creating change with the help of new, inclusive norms and structures.
We offer Master Classes and support for management, teams, supervisors, agents of change and working groups. These can be interactive and inspirational sessions in the form of breakfast meetings, workshops or Master Class sessions.
We provide an overview of the areas where working towards diversity, equity and inclusion have the most significant effect.
We create a roadmap for the process or develop text- or picture-based materials, checklists, articles, videos or games to support your organisation to create change.
We design analyses how diversity, equity and inclusion are already part of your daily work. We conduct surveys or interviews with both management and the employees.
We conduct pay equity analyses, offer support in developing and conducting surveys regarding diversity, equity, analyse your internal and external communication as well as present recommendations and suggestions for concrete actions based on e.g. survey results.
We have a lot of experience in organizing events and seminars. We help your organization in building an interesting seminar program, finding suitable speakers and experts for a panel discussion or contacting relevant researchers.
The end result is a well-thought-out seminar program with a strong focus on creating change.
Ekvalita’s experts are frequently used as keynote speakers, conference MCs or moderators for panel discussions. We also contribute to pods and TV programmes.

We work together with grassroots activists as new trends for equal and inclusive practices often stem from activism. We collaborate with researchers who can often see the bigger picture and draw conclusions from large samples or in-depth interviews. In addition, we get inspired to work with innovative leaders and enthusiastic employees. We collaborate with different kinds of experts because we know that everything is possible when we work together.
Our customer, a large advocacy group, wanted to strengthen the employees’ skills in handling challenging negotiations and in recognizing different types of inappropriate arguments and verbal attacks.
We organized a full-day workshop for 20 people and focused on methods and tools that can be adapted to their everyday working life.
The program included master suppression techniques, hands-on methods, role play and critical evaluation of one’s everyday surroundings.
“Zero tolerance policy of sexual harassment” is one of the eight handbooks published by the Finnish corporate responsibility network FIBS ry in 2017-2018. FIBS contacted Ekvalita and requested our help in writing the handbook. The handbook provides clear and concrete guidelines for preventing and tackling sexual harassment at the workplace as well as advice for employees on how to act if they experience harassment.
The handbook is aimed at employers and it was first launched at a members-only morning seminar. At the time of the book launch, a press release and a blog post on the topic were also published. The handbook is available in English, Finnish and Swedish.
