Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, Equity…

Do you have minorities or other diverse people working in your company?

What about women in your technology departments?

How about LGBTQ+ employees in your organization?

  • Are you supporting them so that they can do their best for you?

  • Is communicating with your diverse workforce a challenge for your organization?

  • Are you giving them permission to fail & ways to fly?

  • Are you giving them what they need to succeed in your environment?

  • Do you understand their particular struggles and challenges?

  • Do you understand the unique value they bring to your organization and how to harness and to tap into it?

  • Do you know how to nurture this value and help it grow, help them grow?

I empower organizations like yours to attract and retain diverse talent through coaching, training, facilitation, and consulting. The job market is highly competitive right now, can you afford to lose good employees, or limit your potential talent pool?

Today’s workforce is diverse but not feeling represented. This causes loss of productivity and unnecessary costs due to attrition and active disengagement. If your employees don’t feel welcome at your organization, they will become disengaged.

Disengaged, unhappy employees are less motivated, less productive, are more likely to take sick time, and unlikely to refer people to your business, either as employee referrals or potential customers. How your employees show up every day impacts your bottom line, and your customer relationships. One of the key ways to deal with these issues is through Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging and Equity training, Increased awareness of these topics has a positive impact on your employees, your customers, and your business success. Through teaching leaders how to communicate with, motivate, and engage their diverse workforce, I help organizations become better stewards of all their employees.

I can help you and your organization open up a dialog with all of your underrepresented employees, benefiting you, your bottom line, and the people who work for you.
