EQUITY PROJECTS

The cornerstone of the Six Sigma Racial Equity Institute™ (SSREI)  Green Belt program is a Six Sigma project. The program participants apply their new skills to a project after successfully passing a knowledge exam.

Our primary focus is the professional growth of the participants. At the same time, we also focus on successful outcomes for employers (profit and non-profit). Our data demonstrates that our Six Sigma approach produces positive and equitable results that benefit all stakeholders.

For the next cohort, we would love the opportunity to come alongside your equity work. You can start the process by submitting a project idea for consideration. Remember - the focus is equity!  You may click the button below to submit your idea or continue reading the project examples. We would love to work with you!
