Approach

Bringing together her academic and industry work, Bailey specializes in long-term, sustainable DEI strategizing rooted in policy change, employee education, and community and industry outreach.

 As a DEI Strategist, Bailey carefully walks clients through the process of assessing their current needs and clarifying organizational goals to create sustainable, transparent directives to improve organizational DEI efforts and workplace climate. As a cultural anthropologist, Bailey centers your organization’s structure and various stakeholders in that assessment, incorporating aspects of your organization’s life such as your specific history, industry standards, recruitment and retention efforts, and community involvement/outreach. The combination of her academic and industry work ensures that your individual and organizational needs are considered when planning, creating, and implementing DEI changes in structural, obtainable, and realistic ways.

 

Though Bailey specializes in DEI work around race, color, and ethnicity, she is a strong believer in intersectional approaches to DEI work and therefore is also experienced working on issues including, but not limited to, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, nationality and citizenship, age, class, caregiving responsibilities, religious beliefs, and veteran status.

 

Bailey is currently accepting clients remotely.

I attended a talk Bailey gave about the politics of allyship in summer 2020, during the height of protests supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. This was a meaningful contribution to public conversations and action on racism in the United States, offered for free and in an accessible format during an inflection point. In her talks and written material, Bailey provides incredible clarity and breaks down the politics of allyship into achievable steps that attendees and readers can hold onto. In the summer 2020 session, we learned that allyship involves action – and it can also involve loss – of relationships and opportunities that are tied to complicity with white supremacist systems.
