Strategic Innovative  Consulting

RIZE Consultants is your partner in establishing business success. We are creative accelerators and value innovation as the primary strategy for developing solutions. RIZE works collaboratively with substance prevention professionals to increase performance, prioritize diversity and inclusion, and accelerate the innovation of strategies designed to reduce the impact of substance use disorder in communities across the United States.

Our Philosophy 

Understanding transformation is crucial to assisting a business in achieving its goals.  We employ a Rhizomatic approach.  This approach describes the interconnectedness and breadth of the learning experience that has no beginning or end and is saturating in nature.  A Rhizomatic approach to systemic change permeates the organization and its surrounding community.  

By this standard, RIZE implements a comprehensive strategic plan for improving a company’s focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The goal is to create systemic, sustainable change that shifts the business culture from the grassroots to the grasstops. 

Our Story

Like all great things, we started small. We represent a story rooted in resilience, a vision to make a difference, and the right circle of like-minded change agents.

What makes us different?

Our Project

We are committed to leveraging the expertise, talents, and wisdom of the collective toward the improvement of health equity for communities of color. We speak boldly on the issues of social inequality and seek to collaborate with others in the development, implementation, and evaluation of community-driven initiatives that radically address social injustice.

"We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.” 
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our Motivation

The story of inequity, childhood trauma, historical trauma, and racial disparities has dragged on for far too long.  We are inspired to direct our energy toward social change and generational shifts in wellness and prosperity. Our work is our purpose, our driving force. It's the reason we get up every day and do what we do.

"The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will."
