Seventy-eight percent of employees work at companies that lack diversity in leadership. (HBR)

Diversity and inclusion are essential for building strong, successful organizations. However, a report by Harvard Business Review noted that 78% of respondents work at companies that lack diversity in leadership. Without diverse leadership, women are 20% less likely than straight white men to win endorsement for their ideas; people of color are 24% less likely; and LGBTs are 21% less likely.

By creating a leadership team that reflects the diversity of our employees and customers, we can tap into a broader range of experiences, perspectives, and ideas, which drives innovation, creativity, and business growth. Assessing diversity representation in leadership is an essential first step toward creating an inclusive and equitable workplace culture.

A diversity and inclusion strategy that’s tailored to you.

Understanding your organization’s leadership profile is the foundation on which to build a more inclusive business.

 

Before ideating your diversity leadership goals, you must find out which areas of your business fall short in terms of representation. As these shortcomings vary depending on each organization — and sometimes within organizations themselves — an analysis of your culture is the necessary first step to setting inclusive leadership goals. We work with you to identify existing areas of strength, as well as challenges and areas for improvement as you move towards systemic inclusion.

  • Presentations
    Our presentations are enriched by the lessons we have learned by coaching diverse organizations and individuals. Your audience will gain practical insight from our lived and work experiences. We will not only teach your leaders how to authentically increase employee engagement and enthusiasm, but we will also show them how to boost team morale and motivation in order to achieve organizational success. Equip your leaders and managers with the necessary tools which inspire organizational greatness and synergy.
  • Panels
    It is important for audiences to feel represented at events, in order to unlock innovation and empower positive change. A diverse panel allows attendees to see themselves on stage, and therefore strive to push the boundaries of their respective industries, and reframe their perspectives. If you value intersectionality as a framework for deeper understanding, your inclusive conference panels conference panel encouraging a diverse array of opinions, experiences, and beliefs is one we’d love to be a part of.
  • Roundtables
    To lead with an inclusion lens, it's important to be willing to adapt your communication, behavior, and thought processes when interacting with people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. In today's increasingly multicultural and multifaceted organizations and teams, it's common for people to lack the necessary training to lead and communicate across dimensions of diversity effectively. One way to address this gap is by hosting a round table or forum to discuss inclusive leadership and brand development with your leadership team.
  • Workshops
    If you're looking to involve your leaders in setting the strategic roadmap and vision for your corporation, consider hosting an interactive workshop. This is a more interactive and engaging way to gather input and ideas from your leaders, rather than simply sending them a questionnaire. At the workshop, we can facilitate discussions and activities to help your leaders feel more invested in the process and contribute to the development of a solid brand strategy. If you need help with delivery, let us know! We’re here for it, and here to lead it.
  • Advisory Councils
    Boards of directors typically strive to create well-rounded boards with the necessary skills and capabilities to govern their organizations effectively. However, there may be times when the board lacks expertise in a particular area and could benefit from the guidance of an outside professional. In these cases, it can be helpful to have an advisory council member with specialized knowledge to fill that gap and provide valuable insights. This is just one example of how an advisory council member can support and enhance the work of the board.
  • Facilitation
    In order to create the most effective facilitation activities for your organization, we will first familiarize ourselves with your culture and values by reviewing relevant documents and speaking with key figures as needed. We will also conduct a needs analysis to understand your current challenges and key messages. As experts in inclusive leadership, we will ensure that diversity, equality, and inclusion principles are integrated into the design process of the interactive session for your delegates. Our goal is to create a tailor-made experience that reflects your unique context and needs.
