We provide organizations, groups and individuals with evidence-based options for achieving deep diversity, true equity, and full inclusion.

True Expertise Informed Action Positive Change

The good news is that there is large body of evidence on what works, what doesn’t work, and what makes things worse.

Unfortunately, a great deal of the accurate evidence and insights are published in scientific literature for other scientists – making it difficult for people who are directly working on D&I (Diversity and Inclusion) to interpret or use.

We got fed up with complaining about the way so many trainers and diversity consultants and unconscious bias “experts” were, with all good intentions misinterpreting at best, and ignoring at worse, what is actually known on these topics.

Creating real diversity, inclusion, and equity is a tricky challenge and common-sense ideas often do not work. As a result, many current approaches fail – and often may make things worse.

This is so important. We need to get it right. The least we can do is ensure what we do is based on the strongest evidence and most effective tools.

Working together, we can accelerate progress towards deeply diverse, truly equitable and fully inclusive organizations – for employees and for the people they serve.

Help us provide support to organizations and groups that cannot afford to pay for assistance.
