Keynote Presentation

Your Role in Creating Inclusive Social Environments


This masterclass will cover the importance of inclusion and the role of individuals in the social environments they occupy.


You will learn how to:

  • Clearly define core values for yourself and the benefit you bring to the social environments you participate in.

  • Identify and disrupt bias on personal, professional, and community levels.

  • Create personal mission, vision, and philosophy statements to remain accountable to your role in creating inclusive social environments.

You will be given worksheets to help you define core values and create personal philosophy statements to refer back to so you can get into the practice of honoring your values and commitments to the communities and social environments you participate in.

"I highly recommend Crystal's education program as well as guest speaker services to train and touch on imperative discussions surrounding diversity, equity, inclusion and human-focused initiatives.” -Courtney “Dazzler” Ibarra, Beatsource


“Working with Crystal was a refreshing, safe and transformative experience. Crystal is an honest and brilliant creative who shares her professional opinion with seasoned and unique insights around branding and DEI work. I felt incredibly seen when working with Crystal and was able to talk through fears and ideas without judgment. I highly recommend working with Crystal and look forward to seeing her coaching business expand and help more people!” -Amy Balsters, The Floral Coach


“The SINGLE BEST THING I did for myself and my business this year was to work with “brand therapist” Crystal Whiteaker. With clarity on my motivations for being a florist and teacher, I can better communicate through my work, navigate my path with purpose, and make tough decisions with ease. I wish this for everyone!! I believe this is also how we tap into our own unique creative expression. I highly encourage learning from and working with Crystal–it will immediately elevate your professional and personal impact.” - Susan McLeary, Passion Flower Sue


"Crystal is amazing. She asks the hard questions and helps you work through the hard answers. Crystal understands that inclusion is a necessity for every human to have a voice at the table. She lives her work at the very core of her being and is one of the most genuine people I know. I was able to dive deeper and keep clarifying what is most important to me and that translated to my messaging becoming more clear. Crystal has made me a better human and business owner. I fully recommend Crystal if you're ready to do the work!" -Kirstie Wheeler, Educational Consultant, Berklee College of Music


"Crystal is A PRO! I worked with Crystal this past year to dive deep into my branding and core values as a company working in the wedding industry. We worked one on one through issues, trouble spots, and growth opportunities. She was supportive, professional, and wise in her approach and practice. Crystal possesses a unique skill to not only get at the heart of the issue by creating a safe space for vulnerability but also challenging you with actionable next steps - not afraid to nudge when it's necessary. I cannot recommend Crystal highly enough and frankly, wish I had her when I started my business six years ago. But I know that I will certainly be a repeat client, however, and recommend her to anyone + everyone." - Amy Shack Egan, Modern Rebel & Co.
