Fostering Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I)
We support our clients to create cultures that strongly value and seek out opportunities to bring different perspectives into consideration, both within their organization as well as with external stakeholders. Our DE&I work is grounded in decades of experience and feedback, as well as a toolbox of research based and reality tested frameworks.
These differences may be based in personal style; cultural or ethnic background; class background; gender identity or sexual orientation; professional vantage point; an intersecting combination of these identities; and/or other positionality.
