Inclusive Branding, Leadership Development, and Custom Brand Photography

Creator of The Aligned Values Framework‚ĄĘ

We work with brands and leaders to create values-aligned, human-focused environments that center belonging.

Supporting diversity is not the same as practicing inclusion.

It's not enough to state 'Black Lives Matter' or 'Love is Love.' Genuine inclusion is a continuous practice that's demonstrated through words, actions, behaviors, and visuals. Let's work together to create genuinely inclusive environments.

Hi! I'm Crystal.

Founder of Crystal Lily Creative. Our brand coaches offer inclusive branding and leadership development consulting, DEI training, and custom brand photography. 

Many of the brands and leaders we work with share a common value: they want to use their platforms to advocate for things like philanthropy, inclusion, human rights, social justice, education, and sustainability. They engage our diversity consultants to implement these inclusive branding and leadership ideas effectively.  

Core values are the soul of your brand. Our brand coach uses that philosophy to help you root, feed, and define your brand and leadership style. This makes it easier to share your message and connect to people in a meaningful way.¬†We use The Aligned Values Framework‚ĄĘ to¬†give you the tools to build an¬†engaged community and¬†cultivate safer environments through an inclusive, human-focused, trauma informed¬†lens.

When we work together, you'll receive support to create inclusive environments and experiences you're proud of.

Let's transform the way you think about your business and evolve your leadership style!

Client Praise

“Learning about inclusive branding from Crystal has been one of the most eye-opening and empowering experiences I’ve had as an entrepreneur *and* as a person.
Her core values-based approach helped me crystalize my belief that, as a business owner, you shouldn’t have to choose between making money and doing good. Now, I help other business owners use social media to do both.
Crystal is deeply insightful, always compassionate, and never judgemental. So when it comes to the challenging work of disrupting your own bias, you could not find a better person to guide you. I cannot recommend her enough!” 
–Nina Stoller-Lindsey, Social Media and Content Strategist for Mission-Driven Brands
“Crystal Lily Creative is an expert in training and facilitating conversations with organizations, small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to make diversity, equity and inclusion a cornerstone of their messaging and branding.
Crystal's approach in motivating her clients to identify core values and create clear messaging and tangible action plans allows for the experience to obtain a higher level of intention and self awareness applicable to any professional format and practicing those elements learned.
I highly recommend Crystal's education program as well as guest speaker services to train and touch on imperative discussions surrounding diversity, equity, inclusion and human-focused initiatives.”
–Courtney “Dazzler” Ibarra, Beatsource
"Crystal is amazing. She asks the hard questions and helps you work through the hard answers. Crystal understands that inclusion is a necessity for every human to have a voice at the table. She lives her work at the very core of her being and is one of the most genuine people I know.
I was able to dive deeper and keep clarifying what is most important to me and that translated to my messaging becoming more clear. Crystal has made me a better human and business owner. I fully recommend Crystal if you're ready to do the work!"
 –Kirstie Wheeler, Educational Consultant and Associate Professor, Berklee College of Music
