Shanté S. Gordon

Head of Strategy

Shanté’s approach to DEI is informed by her work as a Trauma-Sensitive Wellness Facilitator and Yoga Teacher.

She helps her clients develop mindfulness techniques to manage performance, conflict, and “chaos” through a combination of reflection, goal setting, and accountability.

Prior to her work as a health and wellness facilitator, Shanté was an exceptional Project Manager whose capabilities included strong analytical, planning and organizational skills. She used those skills to direct change management initiatives that required fast-paced execution for various companies including Universal Music Group and SoulCycle.

Shanté merges her professional background with her highly developed understanding of energy and empathy dynamics to help businesses develop mindful DEI strategies that align with their values and corporate culture.

Our Guiding Principles

We have had the honor of working with employees in over 20 countries and our work has led us to the following guiding principles:

We Facilitate
Human Connection

The desire for genuine human connections is something that binds us all – regardless of background.

We Foster
Trusted Spaces

Employees need trusted spaces to raise workplace concerns and reimagined ideas about how work is done.

We Encourage

Organizations must take bold actions to move from good intent to tangible change.

We Believe
Intentionality Drives Progress

For sustained and meaningful progress to occur, HR & DEI goals have to be set, widely and regularly communicated, tracked, and measured.

We are committed to partnering with clients to break down institutional inequities, increase representation across all levels of an organization and create spaces where people feel that they belong.  Are you ready to elevate your people strategies?


“What’s the DEIL?” is a podcast for organizational leaders – and those who support them – as they make their way along their DEI journey.  In this podcast, Natalie Norfus and Shanté Gordon explore how leaders can create space for authentic human connection through the lens of DEI. We know you’re busy, so we focus on practical strategies and best practices that improve employee engagement, retention, and impact.
