Thirty-three percent of companies are more likely to have industry-leading profitability with an ethnically or culturally diverse executive team. (McKinsey)

According to findings from a McKinsey study, companies in the top quartile for gender diversity at the executive level are 21% more likely to generate higher profits and 27% more likely to have superior value creation. Organizations in the top quartile for ethnic or cultural diversity on executive teams are 33% more likely to have industry-leading profitability.


What’s more, if your leadership is homogenous, there’s a negative impact on your bottom line. Those companies in the bottom quartile for gender and ethnic or cultural diversity are 29% less likely to be above average in profitability.

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.

Our goal is to create a tailor-made experience that reflects your unique context and needs.
