Veda supports Black Lives Matter 

Veda’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan

Our process.

Over the years we’ve developed a plug-and-play process that we can adapt to solve any problem. Here’s how it works:

Number one

1. Situation

A deep dive into understanding all that is at play, what’s at stake, who is impacted, and possible solutions.

  • Ask lots of questions
  • Interview stakeholders
  • Review research data
  • Research similar projects in the community
  • Interview other professionals

2. Design

We head back to Veda world headquarters to brainstorm ideas on what the solution should look like.

  • Think and brainstorm
  • Create flow charts
  • Collaborate with other people
  • Write the Action Plan
  • Share our recommendations with the client
Number two
Number three

3. Action

Do the work that we agreed to do in step 2.

  • Facilitate meetings where groups large or small discuss the problem and share ideas with Veda at the helm
  • Hold town hall meetings where communities come together to hear information and ask questions
  • Publish information via websites, handouts, posters, signage, etc.

4. Outcome

Provide a practical “go forward” plan that will have positive impact for the original issue.

  • Compile all the learnings into a final report
  • Define how to move forward, who needs to do what, and who made what commitments
  • People who weren’t working together before are now collaborating to solve problems
  • The environment is healthier
  • Communities of people feel heard and seen
