Who are We?
R&R Equity Concierge is your trusted DEI training provider. We are a collaborative partnership between Reset Consulting LLC and Restorative Community Partners LLC which provides diversity, equity, and inclusion training for businesses, schools, and organizations.
By partnering with R&R Equity Concierge, learners assuredly receive the most up-to-date training available.
Our commitment to the work of diversity in the Corridor is deeply rooted in the desire to build the capacity for businesses, schools, and community organizations to thrive and grow in equitable, inclusive, and racially diverse environments. Our work supports embracing diversity, so ALL can thrive in the wonderful work and learning opportunities Iowa has to offer.
With over twenty-nine combined years of experience in leadership, race relations, and restorative justice, R&R has forged long-standing work partnerships with various organizations. Participants will receive customized, thought-provoking training that will leave your team informed and empowered.
Our customized professional development programs make it more conducive for a safer and more collaborative learning space. Working closely with consultants Kimberly Fitten and Laura Gray means your team will receive training directly applicable to your organization’s needs.
Having many years of experience with predominantly white organizations and staff, we empathize with the discomfort our learners’ experience as they discuss issues of race.
Our delivery methods are designed to push our learners; however, we create a container by wrapping around them with restorative practices. This makes for a safer space to process, reflect, and grow.
