Powerful Communications


Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

Why work with us?

We help create brave spaces for people to have dialogue, to understand what being equitable is, and to develop frameworks for better outcomes  – starting with the power of storytelling.

Powerful Communications supports your DEI and leadership development initiatives through dynamic, insightful, and relationship-building –

  • Community workshops,
  • Cultural workshops
  • Rehearsal room workshops 

Cultural Dramaturgy

For forward-thinking leaders driven to make lasting, impactful change.

Powerful Communications is passionate about facilitating dialogue and creating strategy around space.  Who is here? Who is not here?  Why aren’t they here?  How do we get folks here?  How do we keep folks here?  How do we share space?

We work to co-create a climate of Belonging in the rehearsal room. This is done by working with a production’s creative team to build and support Rehearsal Room Agreements from Day 1 of production, and by providing emergent DEI consultation throughout the rehearsal period. 

On the first day of rehearsal, Powerful Communications holds a session that will combine The Culture of the Play with an Agreements Workshop. We work with the creative team to break down the components of “In-Group/Out Group” language and social dynamics in a text, and how to explore those dynamics, with community care, as a company.  It is work that exists at the intersection of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Dramaturgy and Community Building.

Your Partner in Creating Meaningful Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Initiatives That Make a Difference.

After assessing your needs, we can help you build out existing initiatives or develop new ones. We use the power of storytelling to create interactive and impactful Diversity, Equity & Inclusion programs.  We look at the stories we have been told about identity. Stories that include, but are not limited to, our beliefs around race, culture and gender. Then we look at how those stories affect the ways we communicate personally, interpersonally, and organizationally. If you’re ready to make your organization a place where multifaceted and omni-dimensional points of view are not only welcome, but valued, our Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion program is for you.
