Our Approach to "The Tripod Effect"

At the Self Care Network, we collaborate closely with organizations to implement the Tripod Effect. Our approach involves fostering open communication channels between the board, executive leadership, and employees to ensure a shared understanding of DEIB goals. Through tailored workshops, training sessions, and strategic planning, we guide organizations in cultivating a culture of inclusivity, where each stakeholder plays a vital role in advancing DEIB initiatives, promoting sustainable growth and self-care within the workplace.
