Who is Dynamic Transformations?

New here? Take a moment to read more about who we are and what we believe below!
Dynamic Transformations was founded in the Fall of 2020 as a response to the increase in organizational attention on the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within their industries. The murder of George Floyd, and many others, coupled with the racial disparities of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, meant that understanding racial injustice and how to be better as a society was top of mind for many people.
This renewed attention to racial injustice caused an increase in the need for organizations to have DEI support that was genuine, empathetic, and intentional. And thus, Dynamic Transformations was formed. We wanted to lead organizations into reimagining what sustainable DEI change can look like, centering the voices of those most proximate to the issues and taking a human-centered approach to our work. Many organizations want to policy their way to change, but we know that actual change must also live in the mindsets of leaders and staff within an organization.
Why Dynamic? What does that mean to us?
The word dynamic has several definitions. The two adjective definitions define it as marked by continuous and productive activity and change; energetic, forceful. While the noun definition defines it as a force that controls or influences a process of growth, change, or activity. We chose the word dynamic because we felt it exemplified the influence we hope to have with our clients. We understand our role to be the force that helps our clients see continuous change. We bring new ideas, ways of being, and possibilities to our clients.
Are we really offering transformation to clients?
We believe so. But we also believe transformation happens in small moments. A common misconception of organizational change is that it must be sweeping and vast to be felt; a belief that transformation only exists when it is huge, loud, and in your face. We disagree with that approach. We know that real change lives in the small moments, and sustainable transformation exists in cultural mindset shifts. We don't believe you can policy your way to an inclusive and equitable organization. Policies help, but we know that a holistic approach is where actual organizational change can happen. We're here to partner with you to bring that transformation to fruition.
