“Liberating education consists in acts of cognition, not transferals of information.”
― Paulo Freire

Cambium works with clients across the labour movement, not for profits, companies, arts organizations, academic institutions, grassroots groups and others to catalyze deeply needed shifts in organizational culture, rooted in transformative justice, inclusion and liberation for all people.

Our work recognizes that redress and reform are important in workplaces and communities. Years of expertise in this work means we have many tools to help support your organization or workplace.

We also truly believe that whether in a workplace or in our communities, we all have the ability to move collaboratively from reform to truly systemic transformation and liberation.

We embrace our social change roots in all of our work. This is what makes Cambium stand out in the field of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and organizational change.

Cambium: tissue connecting the inner bark of a tree and the heartwood, feeding new growth.

A glimpse of our services:

  • Organizational assessments, policy development and other key initiatives to structurally embed inclusion and move from it to long term transformation and liberation in workplaces and communities

  • Mentoring and ongoing developmental support to grow your knowledge and practical skills in the areas of inclusion, equity and transformational change at an individual and organizational level (See our note on mentoring further below)

  • Cultural sensitivity training on a range of topics

  • Curriculum design and facilitation that covers a full and unique range of DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion), adult education, experiential, arts-based, popular education, critical race, feminist and other learning pedagogies

  • Arts and community initiatives that build lasting connections between a diversity of people and communities

Why mentorship?

We believe that any kind of systemic change must happen from a place of deep collaboration, connection and lateral models of knowledge sharing and liberation. Models of mentorship allow us to work within a foundation that recognizes we all have valuable wisdom and skills to share. At Cambium, we share our expertise and catalyze new growth while tapping into existing knowledge.

“For apart from inquiry, apart from the praxis, individuals cannot be truly human. Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.”
― Paulo Freire
