Diversity for us is not just a buzz word. It is a way of life. We take our mission seriously and work with clients who do the same.
As a training and consulting organization centered around advancing professionals of color, we believe a diversity strategy has to be on-going for the following reasons:
- Awareness needs to be part of the corporate culture. Providing a single training program or supporting a few professional organizations doesn't begin to address the issue of awareness. It can, however, begin with a basic campaign. "Buy-in" is necessary for a campaign to work. If leaders within your organization simply go through the motions, a pattern will emerge that will have harmful long term effects to the corporate culture and reputation of the company.
- Hiring has to be intentional. Inclusion has to be intentional. And without recruiters who are committed to creating a culture of inclusion, your diversity efforts will fail. We provide you with a platform to showcase your efforts and make it known you care about improving the lives of your workforce, one hire at a time.
- Retention programs come in many forms, and are a necessary tool to ensure diversity programs work. Training is just one of those forms, as is strategic recruiting. Leveraging diversity in the workplace plays a major role in the on-going diversity program. As leaders model the company mission, and new associates are ingrained in the corporate culture, a successful cycle of diversity practices will emerge.
We are the catalyst for change by helping your organization to recruit and manage the qualified, talented and experienced leaders you need to begin or enhance your diversity initiatives.
