I’ve been a DEI professional for over 20 years in the non-profit and tech industries. Over that time, I’ve seen the challenges faced by executives with good intentions struggling to make decisions around diversity. Where executives are motivated to do the ‘right thing’ when it comes to DEI but may be hindered by their own biases and fears.
I've also seen the damage endured by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) mid-managers when they have felt they are not centered in their company’s DEI efforts or where they have been/are in difficult situations due to discrimination or bias by others.
My work is about removing barriers or providing support in order to get to a place of equality. I help executives and leaders have that important dialogue, and coach them to the necessary, long-term changes that develop institutional cultures of DEI.
This hands-on approach that I’ve taken to DEI consulting has provided insights into the issues within organizations and best practices to help solve those problems.
A successful diversity and inclusion program supports all individuals within the organization. Diversity is more than diverse individuals. This approach will not produce the results most companies and their executives seek. A DEI program is a success when it strengthens the business and fosters inclusion within the workplace.
The Equity Equation bridges that gap between policy and implementation. We provide guidance and coaching for executives to implement successful DEI programs. In doing so, we have worked with numerous organizations across industries providing practical and impactful DEI programs and results.
