How We Work

This is not a cookie-cutter Diversity 101 training. We translate expert content knowledge  of business case data and gender equity research into learning, strategy and action. Our engagement process is tailored to your organization to facilitate opportunity identification. We collaborate with our clients to design and implement tools that attract, engage, retain and advance the best female talent. Through our work, organizations are able to fully value and leverage women’s contributions as creators, investors, founders and leaders to drive innovation and business performance.


Using diplomacy we create an environment conducive to identifying key opportunities related to gender in your systems and operations. We partner with you to assess your corporate culture and practices, create a unified vision for gender inclusion and leadership, and define success with near and long term milestones.


After careful review of discovery data, we create a custom plan and accountability dashboard to improve your processes and operations. Our highly tailored tools provide you with a roadmap and metrics for creating and prioritizing cultural and systems change through gender inclusion and leadership initiatives.


Next we design and lead comprehensive change management initiatives. We stay in conversation with you to ideate, pilot, gather real-time feedback, refine, launch and sustain impactful initiatives. By tracking results with internal measurement and peer benchmarks, we incorporate strategic learning feedback loops for continuous opportunity identification, organizational improvement and data-informed decision-making.


Finally, we’ll advise you on how to leverage and scale the results of our work together to position your organization as a leader, and create bigger impact outside your organization. Your initiative will grow brand advocacy from internal and external stakeholders who also value women as creators, investors, and leaders. By taking a public stance about your values and how you authentically act on them in meaningful ways, we help you maximize the return on your gender inclusion investment.
