 CASE STUDY

Building Pathways for Underrepresented
Groups at NextRoll

Strive and NextRoll piloted a four-month, tech-enabled learning experience centered around self-discovery, skill development, and community engagement for underrepresented groups.
 

As a cohort, participants completed three core modules, taught in live, interactive sessions. During each class participants practiced skills in role play breakouts, practice simulations, directly applying new frameworks to their real world challenges. Additionally, participants completed a 360 assessment that oriented them in their strengths and areas of improvement.

We wanted to further our journey on supporting underrepresented and marginalized communities at NextRoll. Partnering with Strive allowed us to offer this cohort the tools & frameworks to build their leadership skills, a space to build a supportive community, & the opportunity to develop their professional goals.

 CASE STUDY

Building a Culture of Belonging at Intuit

Strive and Intuit partnered to launch a professional development experience centered around self-discovery, skill development, and community engagement for participants in their African Ancestry ERG.

As a cohort, participants completed
three core modules taught in live, interactive sessions. During each session, participants engaged in group discussion, practiced skills in role play breakouts, and designed their own application challenge in a peer support board on our proprietary social learning platform. Participants completed a 360 feedback assessment that allowed them to understand their current strengths and areas of improvement. They engaged in a 1:1 session with an executive coach where they discussed their 360 results and their leadership goals.

“Our experience with Strive was extremely fruitful, our Circle created a safe environment and provided the opportunity to have deep, meaningful, and safe conversations about how to become a better leader. As an organization, Strive has been a model partner. They not only delivered an incredible learning experience for the team, but working with them eliminated and automated any busy work for us."
