Brown.Noise Experiences
Centering Community Care in Impact Response

Leading and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts in organizations can be isolating, disheartening and exhausting. While working to reduce harm and champion change, leaders and practitioners also need opportunities for respite and release. Move beyond self-care and explore interdependent support and care that amplifies the gifts that we each bring to the community. Unite as leaders and DEI practitioners for a Brown.Noise Experience. Let’s slow down and co-create space for learning, growth, interconnection, community care, rejuvenation and REST.  

Brown.Noise Experiences are carefully curated opportuities to pause and indentify meaningul paths toward personal, organization and institutional change. 

Step into a Brown.Noise Experience. Reduce distrations, center community care, and create connections for true transformation.

FAQ: BROWN.NOISE RESTORATIVE EXPERIENCES

 

What is Brown.Noise?

Brown noise is an ambient sound that lacks the high, sharp resonance of white noise. Like the dull rumble of wind and waves, brown noise creates a muffled blanket of sound that cocoons and soothes, even as storms rage. Its deeper and stronger frequency generates concentrated energy that supports deep listening, focused contemplation, and intentional reflection.

How can Brown.Noise Experiences support equity and inclusion efforts?

Is your organization or group seeking visible and tangible equity and inclusion strategies and growth? Are you pursuing personal or professional growth opportunities to strengthen your own cultural humility and competence? 

We believe that true transformation and change requires self reflection, commitment, and then, intentional shifts in practices. Brown.Noise Experiences offer the time and space to identify patterns, needs and priorities and translate them into meaningful support and action practices.

Who would benefit from Brown.Noise Experiences?
  • Individuals leading efforts to co-create and support equitable and inclusive communities 
  • Executive and senior leaders,
  • Equity and inclusion practitioners and professionals,
  • Mediators and facilitators,
  • Trainers and workshop coordinators,

Equity and Inclusion Practitioner Retreats

This Brown.Noise Experience invites equity and inclusion practitioners to pause and draw upon principles of circle practice as we co-create a protected space for sharing, deep listening, healing and support.

Together we will articulate and expand our imagination for a care in this, often exhausting, community of practice. Offer and receive care and embrace the gift of time and space to simply…BE…together.  

Guided by shared commitments and carefully curated activities, we’ll  prioritize joy and interconnection as we rest and reflect together.   Let’s practice together and experience the true meaning  of equitable and inclusive community care.
