Accompaniment

Social change. It is a process that happens all around us, everywhere, hard to understand, challenging to influence, and mostly indifferent to our existence. Yet scary as this may be, all those we work with play roles in influencing and changing societies. Social change is our business, and our business is seeking the advancement of social and environmental justice. As Wayfairers, we do not bring instant answers, but specialize in accompaniment, being a guide and a companion on journeys that pursue the rights and equal treatment of all of us, and all our children.

Action Research

Agents of Change

Innovators across diverse organizations are constantly exploring how to work more effectively to make a greater difference, cultivate key relationships, and remain at the vanguard of the evolving demands and environments in which we work. WayFair is a new organization, but with a team that is experienced at guiding groups through complex change processes and in developing and guiding innovative programming. We are a resource for innovators. Our commitment is to advise and support change leaders in reinventing their work to craft and anchor new forms of success.
