Diversity & Inclusion aren't afterthoughts
Making them a priority means happier, stronger, more profitable teams and events. But diversity doesn’t happen accidentally, so where do we start? Your culture, outreach, and processes —intentional or not — all contribute to how potential candidates and customers see you.
The attraction and retention of talent, our innovation and problem-solving skills, and our community engagement all rely on participation from the widest range of people possible. Our businesses see increased productivity, sales revenue, employee loyalty, customer satisfaction, market share, profits, and customer bases when our teams are less homogenous than our competitors’.
We consult with organizations to build and sustain a foundation for diversity and inclusion, specializing in startups, conferences, and open source communities.
We'll bring all the right people to the table to discuss your project and ideas to make it a success.
We'll collaborate to create a completely customized, effective set of solutions to meet your goals.
We'll work closely with you to make your plan a reality.
We'll re-evaluate what we've learned, what has worked, and make changes as necessary.
