Enlightened Solutions is a research and advocacy firm that specializes in individual equity, and organizational change. Historically, equity and inclusion work has focused on proving the existence of a “problem” - our work focuses on unearthing foundational solutions.
We were founded on the belief that workplace equity and inclusion-forward diversity in professional spaces are not buzzwords for organizations to use as an alternative to accountability. Enlightened Solutions envisions a future that incorporates belonging everywhere and in all industries.
We create, implement and publish research-based solutions that center the lived experiences of diverse people.
We support individuals navigating exclusionary systems in the workplace through trauma-informed resources, access to legal assistance and general advocacy.
We use a methodology called, "Phenomenological Research" - which values and amplifies the lived experiences of the individuals, groups and organizations we study.
I did still want to take a moment to reiterate how much I appreciate you both for trusting me to be a partner on Project Noir, and for allowing yourselves to be the first partnership for Lemon-Love... It was one of you that said, Black Women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs, and it may be because of the antiquated ideologies of the traditional workspace--as you can see that statement stayed with me.
All I've ever wanted was a place to be creative, connected, vulnerable, and relatable. But I had to create that space for myself in order to have it. So everything Enlightened Solutions has done to foster better environments for Black Women— I mean, I'm indebted to ya'll ... I simply am so grateful and fortunate to know you both, and I'm so thankful from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity you've given me.
