Our Inspiration & Approach
Project 986, LLC was inspired by the average body temperature for humans (98.6 degrees), which represents a point of connection between all people regardless of difference, place, identity or social status. This reality encourages community-building, learning and planning processes that honor and respect the dignity, voices and lived experiences of all individuals. It also provides an entry point for introducing clients to educational resources and processes designed to deepen their understanding about the ways in which societal, institutional and organizational norms as well as systems and structures inform life experiences and outcomes as well as create advantages for some while disadvantaging others.
At Project 986, we provide an array of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) services uniquely designed to help organizations, advance their mission and realize or maintain a competitive edge in their respective industries and areas of service. Where larger firms adopt “one size fits all” models to DEI consulting, we focus on relationship-building and prioritize your unique brand and mission, while customizing our approach to DEI assessment processes, planning, coaching, curriculum design, training, resource development and dialogue facilitation to ensure your organization’s long-term growth, success and development in changing cultural, national and global climates.
