Facilitation for Critical Conversations 

Talent Untapped is a powerful tool that sparks sensitive, sometimes difficult conversations. A special screening is the starting point for transformational sharing on disability, disclosure, mental health, intersectionality, workplace flexibility. The short film is followed by a facilitated talk with the Director, who shares her lived experience and stories from hundreds of employers and employees.

We help you create a strategy that's embedded into every aspect of your business. We start with alignment with the top decision makers, and then we engage multiple stakeholders to ensure success.  

 

ABOUT US

Our team is a diverse, multi-disciplinary group of experts in organizational culture, Indigenous collaboration, change management and communications.  Our combined expertise span over 120 years in private, public and nonprofit sectors, across a range of industries. 

 

Our work in DEI started as a crowd-funded documentary, TalentUntapped. Our Founder directed and produced the film because she felt compelled to show the world the talent and tenacity of people with disabilities. The film has been screened by progressive organizations and leaders around the world. Its continued demand shows us the need and responsibility to cultivate inclusive workplaces. 

Our Founder Anna-Karina Tabuñar has 25 years of success in corporate communications, strategy, community advocacy and journalism. This work is deeply personal because of her own lived experience, which she shares in speaking engagements.​ Anna-Karina was host of the award-winning TV series “Canada in Perspective,” the country's first show focusing on disability and inclusion. She sits on the Board of Directors of the Vanier Institute of the Family. She is a proud mom of three plus a canine.  

Anna-Karina has taken experienced corporate leaders and made them more effective as leaders and spokespersons. Anna-Karina is a true professional in every sense of the word.
