  • Diversity Consulting and Training

    Organizations that embrace diversity, inclusion and equity are on average 32% more profitable that organizations that do not. So why do some organizations struggle in this area? Status Quo. We want to be more inclusive, model diversity and create an environment where everyone's unique self is embraced but we don't want to fix anything that doesn't appear to be broken, right? Especially if it may shift the balance of power.

    I help organizations identify gaps in their infrastructure, assess the current health of the culture and provide guidance and recommendation to build a more inclusive, safe and healthy environment for diversity, equity and inclusion so the organization and it's talent can thrive.
