The cost of bias continues to rise. The Urban Labs helps companies activate their cultural competency to attract customers, influence product offering, and attract and retain talent in order to outperform their competitors.
When developing diversity and inclusion employee engagement programming, WeSpire realized they needed the voice of an expert who could bring both authenticity and sensitivity. In partnership withUrbanLabs, WeSpire was able to create and launch engagement campaigns helping their corporate clients instruct their employees about bias, cultural inclusion, and disability visibility. Through these campaigns, UrbanLabs helped facilitate genuine conversations about race, privilege, and the value of each individual's diverse perspective. WeSpire is currently the market leader in Positive Impact campaigns and works with sustainability departments, corporate responsibility programs, and human resources at companies such as MGM Resorts, BASF, and Cox Enterprise.
"In today’s charged political and social environment, conversations about race can get touchy pretty fast. Malia Lazu has an extraordinary capacity to bring humor, playfulness and a whole lot of heart into every room. Which means the rest of us get to drop our guard, lighten up and really learn together. My organization is stronger, smarter and kinder because of the time we spent with her.”— Deborah Frieze, President, Boston Impact Initiative
