Wilson and Associates is Los Angeles-based Organizational Change & DEI Consulting Firm
We help leaders
TRANSFORM their workplaces to become more equitable and inclusive.
BUILD AN IRRESISTIBLE WORKPLACE
If you want to build an irresistible workplace—one where everyone feels able to contribute and share their best ideas—then you’ve got to create an internal culture that amplifies your vision and values.
At Wilson & Associates Consulting, we believe that organizations thrive when they are in service of their mission and in partnership with their people.
That’s why we’re committed to helping you build an equitable, inclusive and people-centered company culture from the ground up — and why we embed so much joy and fun into the process.
Companies on a mission to make the world a better place have to care twice as much about their internal culture to ensure their actions are aligned with their values.
That responsibility falls to the leaders—the people whose job it is to keep a finger on the pulse and an eye on patterns and trends.
But culture change isn't just a big picture strategy.
In order to lead lasting transformation and design a more equitable workplace, we have to do work at an individual, team, and organizational level.
Needless to say, it helps to have help.
"Creating the conditions for physical and psychological safety is a critical foundation for ensuring workplace mental health and well-being.”

As a leader, there are so many ways for you to create a company where people thrive. Here’s how we can help you, no matter where you and your organization are in the journey:
HOW WE SUPPORT YOU
DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION+ (DEI+) CONSULTINGUsing our Recipe for Transformation™️, we help you disrupt inequity by facilitating courageous conversations, making commitments to change, and doing the work to address and repair harm. Our greatest aspiration is to joyfully work in solidarity with you to create conditions where everyone—and particularly anyone who has been historically excluded—has the opportunity to achieve their highest potential and thrive.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENTOrganizations are large ecosystems—they often need recalibrating in order to create conditions where people continue to thrive. As experts in Transformational Consulting, we help you run an organization that honors people in their full humanity, creating a culture that prioritizes belonging and connection.

JUSTICE CENTERED LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENTWe believe that leadership is a characteristic, not a title, and that everyone deserves access to expert support and resources to help build that leadership muscle. We want to help you (and your team members) elevate your voice, lead with dignity, and sustain your efforts to create a values-aligned, irresistible workplace at your organization.

FACILITATIONEnjoyable, inclusive, and results-focused gatherings require expert facilitation. Whether you’re planning a meeting, conference, retreat, or planning process, Wilson and Associates has been in the business of facilitation for 15 years and we’d love to help. Our P.O.P.P. Design Framework helps us co-design and deliver unforgettable engagements—ones where groups do their best thinking, conversations and activities are well-managed, and joy is infused intentionally. That’s why people often leave our group sessions more energized than how they arrived. LEARN MORE ABOUT FACILITATION
"When our organization committed to becoming an anti-racist organization, Chrysta's, background, experience, and knowledge of the communities our organization serves was important to us.
Chrysta has masterfully engaged our team members through training and coaching and has guided us through difficult and often uncomfortable but necessary conversations. We truly appreciate the personalized touch Chrysta has used to support our organization during an important time of transition."

Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles (CCALAC)
We are experts in transforming organizations at the company, team, and individual level using diversity, equity, inclusion, and organizational culture change best practices. Our CEO Chrysta Wilson’s Recipe for Transformation™️ model explains our approach to the work.
This is a process of envisioning the future environment you want in place and identifying what will support your efforts to get started right now.
In this next phase, you work with our team to first diagnose what has prevented you from this future you envisioned and then DISCOVER the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to build a new pathway forward.
In this phase, you are engaged in a process of accountability and action planning—ensuring the transformations you make are more likely to have buy-in, helping them "stick" and be sustained. Particularly in DEI+ work, it’s often overlooked that what we’re talking about are real people who have experienced identity-based harm. REPAIR is a key component of this recipe.
When you work with us to build equitable and inclusive workplaces where employees can thrive, you will practice values-based decision making, engage in truth-telling, and we will equip you with the tools that you need to create the company culture of your dreams.
Our Recipe for Transformation™ process creates a healthier, and more just workplace.
