RANGE Consulting

About RANGE Consulting

RANGE Consulting is advancing equity in all spaces where LGBTQ+ people work and live through Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) cultural humility workshops, consulting, workforce development, and partnerships.

Our Services

Our Comprehensive Approach: RANGE Consulting believes that everyone has a role to play in supporting an organization’s IDEA initiatives. Every employee, not just leaders, are integral in creating inclusive cultures. Our engaging and judgement-free approach empowers employees by providing practical tools, techniques and strategies to create environments where everyone can thrive. The following list includes topics that we can facilitate. In addition to these topics, we may be able to develop content to meet your organization’s unique needs.

We can conduct a comprehensive assessment of the organization’s culture, policies and procedures, benefits, and marketing to determine how inclusive they are to supporting an LGBTQ+ workforce and clientele. RANGE requires access to staff within all levels of the organization to conduct meetings, interviews, and surveys. We will provide a preliminary timeline for the project and at the conclusion of the project, provide a summary analysis with reporting and recommendations.

This training will help create awareness of the different types of LGBTQ+ identities encountered in clinics and doctor’s offices, the health barriers, drivers & disparities common within the LGBTQ+ community, and best practices for creating welcoming environments for LGBTQ+ patients and staff. This training includes a companion workbook with several interactive activities and a comprehensive list of LGBTQ+ terms and resources.

When employees transition gender at work, entire teams and organizations transition with them. Research shows that transgender employees who are able to successfully transition while on-the-job experience higher job satisfaction, as well as improved mental health and life satisfaction. Is your organization prepared to assist employees in gender transitions at work? While every transition will be unique, a formal Transition Plan & Guidelines enables HR, management, and the transitioning employee to successfully navigate the transition in a way that demonstrates support for transgender employees and helps to minimize common problems and pitfalls. This training will assist your organization in developing and implementing Gender Transition plans and policies, address common best practices, and provide document templates for your use. If your organization has already implemented transition related policies and procedures, RANGE offers a trained and licensed attorney to conduct a legal review of your current policies and provide suggestions for improvement and compliance.

Allyship is a constant action to learn about, respect and support those representing different identities than our own. This workshop focuses on effective strategies to support the LGBTQ+ community through allyship. We will explore various levels of involvement as an ally, debunk some harmful myths about the LGBTQ+ community, and how to be an Upstander when you see someone in crisis. We will also discuss how to advance from an ally to an accomplice. This workshop is intended for LGBTQ+ and non-LGBTQ+ people, as LGBTQ+ people need to be allies for one another.

This course focuses on introducing basic language and terminology, while creating a safe space for questions. We will cover the differences between sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as expand on the additional types of diverse identities that fall beneath the umbrella categories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer. This course explores best practices for engaging with the LGBTQ+ community, the importance of pronoun usages and their impact on transgender and gender diverse people, tips for supporting colleagues that come out as LGBTQ+, and strategies for supporting the community through allyship.

This workshop focuses on the responsibilities of management relating to their LGBTQ+ employees. We will review federal and state laws that provide legal protections for LGBTQ+ employees; the business case for LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion; best practices and common pitfalls that organizations often experience. We will discuss affirming policies on the topics of restrooms and locker rooms, dress codes, gendered and heteronormative language, respecting religious beliefs and LGBTQ+ identities, inclusive hiring, and interviewing practices, and how to create an inclusive culture for LGBTQ+ employees and community.

Although the relationship between law enforcement and the LGBTQ+ community at times has been complicated, there is much opportunity to establish trust and continue to build collaborations with the LGBTQ+ community. By analyzing the history of policing of LGBTQ+ communities and businesses where there were at times targeted policing, which resulted in increased occurrences of violence and harassment, lessons learned will be taken through to the present-day advancements of LGBTQ+ representation within various departments, allies, education, and partnerships with law enforcement agencies, and ways to increase community engagements.This workshop is intended to provide basic language and terminology, while creating a safe space for questions. We will cover the differences between sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as expand on the diverse identities that fall under the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) umbrella. We will explore best practices for engaging with the LGBTQ+ community, the importance of pronoun usages and their impact on transgender and gender expansive people, tips for supporting colleagues that come out as LGBTQ+, myths about LGBTQ+ domestic violence, stigmas about law enforcement, and strategies for respectfully serving the LGBTQ+ community.

RANGE developed several comprehensive train-the-trainer projects for clients with their own training departments and/or ERG (employee resource group) staff but lacking the expertise, curriculum, and/or materials to deliver LGBTQ+ culturally affirming training to their employees. The projects can range between 3-, 6- or 12-month engagements, and combine the delivery of training and consulting services.

Proper pronoun use is essential to creating welcoming environments for transgender and gender expansive people. Using incorrect pronouns (also known as misgendering), is disrespectful and plays a significant role in a creating hostile and unwelcoming atmospheres. This training examines the role and importance of pronouns in everyday interactions and includes a brief overview of gender identity and expression, and best practices for using inclusive communications.

This training takes a deeper dive into the LGBTQ+ community. Building off the fundamental concepts from the LGBTQ+ Basics training, this training: Explores the experiences and challenges faced by transgender and gender expansive people; Develops a better understanding about the transition process; Explores a brief overview about transgender and gender expansive history; and Provides transgender and gender expansive affirming resources and services.

Often times we observe conflicts and situations but don’t know how to intervene safely and effectively. Historically, anti-harassment courses have taught what not to do, but generally exclude techniques for what to do. This course provides effective strategies for identifying when a conflict is occurring and ways to safely intervene. We will discuss a variety of intervention strategies and apply them to different scenarios.

PRIDE Job Board

The PRIDE Job Board connects inclusive employers with talented LGBTQ+ candidates and allies. The PRIDE Job Board is the ideal platform for organizations to promote their job opportunities to thousands of prospective candidates via paid listings on The Center on Colfax and Denver PRIDE websites, and in subscriber newsletters promoting job opportunities.
