Since its founding in 2001, Morten Group has worked through a lens of social justice, with an emphasis on racial equity initiatives. In the Fall of 2016, Morten Group launched its Equity and Inclusion Institute, which offers culturally competent solutions to important issues toward achieving equity at nonprofits and for-profits across the country.

All workshops are tailored to meet the individual needs of each organization. The process begins with an internal assessment, resulting in a summary report with key findings and recommendations. Following the reporting process, workshops are designed based on themes raised in the assessment. Workshops are interactive and can include scenario role plays and personal reflections, as well as participatory explorations of key terminology.

After the training/workshop has been completed, a brief post-training evaluation is sent out to the participants to assess efficacy and next steps for the organization.
