diversity & inclusion
The face of the world is changing, and so is how people entering the workforce view diversity, inclusion, and gender identity. Providing diversity and inclusion training isn’t just about doing it as a formality, rather it’s about helping employees understand that the company places value on diversity, building inclusive working spaces, properly using employee pronouns, and overcoming all sorts of unconscious biases.
A diverse and inclusive workplace is one that makes everyone, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization, feel equally involved in and supported in all areas of the workplace.
Research has shown many benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace: higher revenue, greater readiness to innovate, an increased ability to recruit a diverse talent pool and a 5.4 times higher employee retention rate.
Our Diversity & Inclusion Courses:
Leading for Diversity, Inclusion & Equity in the Workplace - 1-day training workshop on how to lead diversity and inclusion in your organization, with a concentration on unconscious bias, privilege, gender and sexual diversity and proper use of pronouns in the workplace.
Inclusion & Diversity in the Workplace - ½ day workshop to offer all of your employees to discuss what is diversity, inclusion, unconscious bias and privilege.
Proper Use of Pronouns in the Workplace - ½ day workshop to explore what gender and sexual diversity is and the proper use of pronouns.
Consider this: If you asked all the senior leaders in your company to share the company direction and targets, would they be able to provide a clear answer? If not, strategic clarity and focus is lacking. Without everyone understanding and working towards the same goals, the company will drift and miss out on opportunities that align with their goals.
At Uprise, we have seen first hand, many times, how a well developed strategic blueprint developed in partnership with a neutral third party can catapult the success of a business or organization. We carry out a detailed analysis of your market and work with your team to conduct a process that leads to clear goal setting, expectations and communication. We then build the plan to set and keep your business and people on the right track to success.
How much time and energy do you invest in your people? What about in yourself? Unfortunately in many companies, leadership and team development is handled only when a problem arises. We encourage companies to take a very proactive approach to professional development opportunities that align with their goals. Uprise supports leadership and team development for many types of organizations through customized coaching and through various workshops to make training easy and accessible for everyone.
All workshops can be delivered in-person or through live virtual sessions.

When it comes to being an expert in your field, you know what you’re doing. However, when you add people into the mix - people YOU have to manage - you might find yourself struggling without the right tools and resources. Not many of us have degrees in leadership, but it can make or break an organization.
Uprise Consulting offers a Certificate in Leadership Training program that consists of three parts:
leading teams and
leading the organization.
By offering a customized white-labelled program, we not only shape the program specifically based on the organization’s unique requirements for training, we also allow companies to brand the program elements and certificates. This reinforces the company brand and culture through their leadership training program.
Whether you are a soon-to-be manager, a first-time manager or a seasoned leader, this program provides you with the necessary hands-on training you need to build upon your competencies to be effective in your role of leading people.
We fully believe that a company is only as strong as the people working in it.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)
The MBTI® is a well-respected and commonly-used personality type assessment tool. Many individuals and companies continue to see its value as the MBTI® helps you learn about your own personality type, how you operate and how to work successfully with all types. At Uprise, we use this effective assessment tool to help you and/or your team form greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, to further develop strengths and under-utilized aspects of their personality and inner-workings to be more successful.

JVIS is an education and career planning tool used to capture your interests and provides information on how they relate to education and work, in order to lead you to academic and professional fulfillment. Uprise then provides you with relevant links, resources and industry contacts to help you learn more about your education options to make the right decision and investment of your time and money.
Emotional Intelligence Skills Assessment (EISA)
Emotional intelligence has an important place in business, ensuring managers can better understand and motivate their team. The EISA tool measures perceiving, managing, decision making, achieving and influencing. Working with Uprise, companies can introduce emotional intelligence into the workplace, helping individuals understand the connection between their emotional and social skills and their performance, and to build those skills effectively.
Benchmarks© 360 Degree Feedback

This in-depth analysis of observable behaviors provides managers with a solid assessment of their leadership competencies. Using this assessment, Uprise helps managers to identify new work endeavours to take on to develop critical competencies for success, and identifies possible problems that may stall their career.
executive coaching & consulting
Even the top performing executives and most well-known and respected business leaders consider leadership coaching a core element of executive development.
At Uprise, we help you sharpen your vision and leadership acumen. We work closely with you to master the skills that align with your company’s vision and prepare you for personal and business growth.
Our coaching process follows five fundamental steps:
Building the relationship
Challenging thinking and assumptions
Support and encouragement
Supplier diversity is a strategic business practice that promotes equal opportunity for typically under-represented groups of business owners - including minorities, women, aboriginals, LGBTQ2S and veterans. Minority-owned businesses are vital to Canada’s economic prosperity.
By implementing a supplier diversity program, companies are encouraging the use of these businesses in their supply chains. Many Fortune 1000 companies are now implementing these programs - it only makes sense given the increasingly diverse markets that most companies serve in this global age.
If your company handles a large amount of procurement, consider a supplier diversity program. Not only does it feel right to be socially responsible, companies who implement these programs see better procurement practices, reduced costs, improved profitability, increased innovation, new markets and better community engagement.
We also help businesses owned by these groups identify opportunities for connecting and working with companies who use supplier diversity.
