Our Work

Creating safe space for meaningful change

The Clear Umbrella (TCU) is built on the guiding principle that everyone should be afforded basic human compassion and decency. Such values remain deeply embedded in the core of all our interactions, offering opportunities to enlighten and educate. We work toward an environment that promotes allyship while uprooting silos without shaming and blaming.

The name Clear Umbrella itself denotes the principles of transparency, inclusion, protection, and safety that are the cornerstones of TCU’s approach to EDI. We understand that EDI is a journey and not a destination – it is a continuous process of learning, unlearning, and relearning.

Using an unconventional but effective approach, our methods are uniquely designed to meet people and organizations where they are at on their EDI journey. We help build new ways of working together, based on shared learnings and experiences, collaboration and harmony.

What We Do

  • Form a team with the right experience and skills to match the needs of your organization.
  • Explore and consult to gather input using a variety of methods including one-on-one interviews, focus groups, surveys, environmental scans, etc.
  • Use positive disruption to challenge the status quo, while creating a safe space where participants can express themselves freely and be open and ready to embrace meaningful change.
  • Actively avoid blaming and shaming by focusing on a co-created future state.
  • Provide thoughtful analysis and clear recommendations for a positive way forward.
  • Respect that people and organizations learn and change at different paces.
  • Create balance between the capacity of your organization and the need and/or desire for change.
