Frame Shift Consulting helps technology organizations live up to their values around creating welcoming, inclusive, diverse cultures. We specialize in raising organization-wide awareness and building motivation to change from within through the Ally Skills Workshop. Our services include:

Our work is based on the open and direct acknowledgement of pervasive systemic bias against women of all races, people of color, LGBTQ people, genderqueer people, people with disabilities, sex workers, older people, mothers and caregivers, young people, neurodivergent people, undocumented people, and people of lower socioeconomic status, among others.

Principal consultant Valerie Aurora brings 15 years of experience working for social justice in technology. She is the lead author of the Ally Skills Workshop, led the creation and adoption of the most popular example conference code of conduct, and co-founded the Ada Initiative, which supported women in open technology and culture. She also worked as a open source software developer for over ten years, specializing in Linux and file systems. Learn more about Valerie Aurora here.
