Case Studies

DEI Assessment: Establishing a Baseline for Future Improvements

College of the Atlantic

Problem: How does the most sustainable college in the United States with 25% international students embrace diversity, equity and inclusion?

 

Solution: Global Tides, LLC served as a board liaison on the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) task force. We helped design, implement and analyze a community climate survey to highlight strengths and areas for improvement. Based on the survey results COA is examining how to remove unconscious bias from their curriculum, processes and procedures to make the college more inclusive.

Community Onboarding:

Improving the Retention for Key Hires

Jackson Laboratory

Our Solution: Working with senior leadership at JAX, we looked at the onboarding process from the perspective of new employees. We identified the major obstacles in the onboarding process. Our community on-boarding program demystified their new home, as well as helping them join their new community. As a result, researchers feel supported in their transition, they remained at JAX and had the tools to excel.

DEI Strategic Planning:  Expanding Programming to Include New Markets

Maine Public Television

Problem: How does Maine Public Television broaden the reach of its programming to highlight the diversity of Maine and accelerate entrepreneurship in all parts of the Maine community?

 

Solution: Global Tides, LLC partnered with Greenlight Maine to design and produce Elevating Voices. The series spotlights minority-owned companies that are often simultaneously cornerstones and economic drivers of their community and hidden from people outside of the communities. Highlighting these entrepreneurs unlocks resources, grows our economy and helps Maine’s newest residents plant roots in Maine.
