Let's Shake It Up Together!
At Shake Up The Establishment, alongside our free community resources and advocacy efforts, our skilled team also provides a wide range of professional services on a contractual basis, co-designed to best suit your needs.
How it works
Our Board of Directors recognizes that in both the private and public sectors, there is an increased focus on creating products (e.g. educational resources, campaigns, digital marketing) and hiring service providers (e.g. speaking engagements, training, facilitated workshops and events) to promote justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, namely for womxn, Black folx, Indigenous folx, communities of colour, and gender-diverse folx. With the intent to support meaningful discourse and to ensure the creation of informed resources, we are happy to connect organizations with youth leaders to accomplish these goals.
