Tidal Equality

Tidal Equality is focused on helping organizations solve the problems of inequality at scale and we are determined to educate our market on new ways to solve this age-old problem. We have invented two powerful methodologies organizations and individuals can use to reduce the problems of bias, discrimination, and inequality and to expand equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our most powerful and effective methodology is Equity Sequence (it's like Agile or Lean but for making more equitable decisions and designs), it's a system of 5 elegantly simple questions any one and any team can use to spot the problems of bias and inequality in action and transform it. It's a scalable, useful, totally different approach to building more diverse and inclusive organizations and better yet -- it helps companies drive a whole new category of innovation -- equitable innovation -- in products, services, and customer and employee experiences.
