Learn about our roles in creating inclusive environments to support your inclusive leadership journey.
When you're on the path to creating more inclusive environments, it's important to consider the roles and influence you have in your business, the organizations you're a part of, and how you engage with them.
Here's what you can expect from the Crystal Lily Creative Inclusive Leadership Development Masterclasses:
Building Aligned Relationships - Because we need like-minded connections to create inclusive communities.
Our Roles in Creating Inclusive Environments - Because we need to acknowledge and understand the impact our influence can have.
How to Be An Inclusive, Inspiring Leader - Because inclusive leadership comes with the responsibility to model ways of being that help elevate the collective.
How to Incorporate Inclusive Language into Your Messaging - Because language is so powerful and the words we use can serve as an invitation or a red flag.
How to Manage Discomfort When Disrupting and Identifying Bias - Because working through bias can be uncomfortable and you should have tools to help care for yourself and others.
"The space she creates is both open and intentional. I cannot endorse her or her programs enough; from how she starts to the discussions she cultivates, each moment gives you something you need (whether you know it or not). I'll be attending more of her offerings in the future, and I suggest you do the same." -Elisa Stampf, CEO, Insure Equality
"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, Berklee College of Music
"Crystal developed and delivered an engaging and valuable workshop on Inclusive Branding for Impactful Leaders for the female entrepreneurs that make up the BRA Network. What stands out about Crystal's style of teaching is that she listens well, she gave plenty of examples throughout her presentation and answered any and all questions from the attendees. Feedback was excellent from all participants. Top qualities: Organized presentation, excellent content knowledge and tremendous takeaways." -Carrie Murray, BRA Network
"Crystal is a breath of fresh air. Through her personal story, Crystal has defined the importance of inclusion and model it through all of her interactions. Because inclusion is engrained in her way of life, creating inclusion branding is 2nd nature for her. Through working with her, you will understand whom you are at your core while attracting clientele and partners that align with your values." -Lauren Dike, DEI Training Facilitator
"Working with Crystal was an incredible experience! I worked with Crystal on making sure that both my website and the new book I'm writing are inclusive and rooted in my core values. The feedback she provided on both was invaluable to making sure that I'm cultivating safe and welcoming spaces for all humans with shared values. She also inspired me to take a deep dive into my (and my brand's) core values, which was something I marinated on for several weeks and that resulted in some pretty significant a-ha moments for me. Crystal is incredibly kind, funny, thoughtful, professional, brilliant, and an all-around amazing human. I cannot recommend her and her work more highly!!!" -Leah Weinberg, Color Pop Events
“The SINGLE BEST THING I did for myself and my business this year was to work with “brand therapist” Crystal Whiteaker. With clarity on my motivations for being a florist and teacher, I can better communicate through my work, navigate my path with purpose, and make tough decisions with ease. I wish this for everyone!! I believe this is also how we tap into our own unique creative expression. I highly encourage learning from and working with Crystal–it will immediately elevate your professional and personal impact.” -Susan McLeary, Passion Flower Sue
