As a DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) practitioner, I help businesses explore plans to help move their organizations forward while retaining their valuable employee base.

By focusing on the needs of the individual, the department, and the organization as a whole, I provide customized training, needs assessments and interventions to help employees feel seen and supported.

In DEI consulting, we look at how well companies incorporate DEI and how they provide integrative support to employees. Today, many companies are focused on diversity — but they’re still normed on white male dominant values (as we can see in the way motherhood and maternity leave are treated in many businesses). We’re becoming more diverse, but companies still haven’t adjusted to the diversity we have today. My goal is to help businesses and individuals move from tokenizing diversity to valuing equity

Our Process

By assessing where a company is, I create policies supporting an environment that encourages innovation. Now that we have this diversity, we have to help people come to the table — we have to really give them a seat. I look at how business owners tap into inclusivity. How can you make sure you really see the employee in front of you? I encourage employers to recognize differences while leaning into what we have in common. Acknowledging what’s different about ourselves opens up opportunities for growth and learning, for support rather than alienation.

Consultation Process:

  • Organizational assessment
  • Development of company-specific DEI policies
  • Integration and cultivation of customized DEI plan to move company forward
  • Employee engagement activities
  • Evaluation of effectiveness
