Redwood Enterprise, LLC partners with our clients to promote access and equal opportunity for individuals to reach their full potential, and organizations to accomplish their mission. We use inclusive practices and remove barriers to advancement.


All of our work is based on the principle of respect for human dignity and unconditional positive regard for all.

Unconditional positive regard means we value individuals for their humanity. This philosophy creates an environment of trust, which leads clients on a journey of self -discovery through the evolution, or in some cases awakening, of their diversity awareness. Our approach is to explore cultural competency through the lens of learning and sharing. We seek to model the behaviors we impart in our content and teaching.


  • We Facilitate Change

  • We Offer Solutions

  • We Value People

When “crisis”  or "forced change" evades your working environment, like mandatory workforce reduction, rapid staff expansion,  employment-based lawsuits or bad publicity, Redwood Enterprise works with you to restore stability so your team can focus on their responsibilities and achieve the organization's mission.
