Who we work with

We consider ourselves industry agnostic – that means that we have the great pleasure of working with clients that represent a myriad of services, products, and perspectives. More than what our client organizations do, we love working with clients who are:

Ready to be accountable for DEI and other people-centered initiatives, from the C-suite throughout all other levels of the organization

Open to engaging in uncomfortable conversations and facing hard truths that might be uncovered during our engagement.

Willing to properly resource DEI and other people-centered functions so the work does not fall on one or two people to execute.

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?
