Less theory, more tactics.
SOURCE Guides are written around the specific circumstance of helping teams determine what steps they should take next. No fluff or keyword stuffing, just advice you debate or can act on.
We recognize that it’s very difficult to adopt someone else’s process wholesale. SOURCE Guides are written in modular steps so that you can take what you need and discard the rest.
Our guides are written in a plain, straightforward format so that anyone from early career to advanced professionals can interpret each step and discuss within their teams.
Your users and teams have varying backgrounds and expectations. SOURCE Guides share the experience of Experts from around the globe to help you navigate an every-changing world.

Reactions from our community
I love it all, and this sentence stood out:
Leadership is not about the use of power, nor is it about one’s place in the organization, or the projects they own — it’s about leveraging trust with integrity.
Bravo Seth Johnson
“Leaders can appear at any level of the organisation”.
It’s a very powerful opening sentence! Thanks for sharing the guides.
Wow this is really great content! Thank You!👏🏼
Great write-up here. Karina! I loved how you mixed in tactics that remain scalable over time.
Great Piece! Zariah Cameron. My favorite part is when you say that “you don’t need to have a role dedicated to equity design to start a discussion or to advocate for equity design practices.”
This is great Tonisha! I really love the point about creating a safe space for collaboration.
Awesome piece Zariah, thanks for putting this into the world!
Great reading this, Karina!! Great work!
