The National LGBT Bar Association’s LGBTQ+ inclusion coaching and consulting program.
LGBTQ+ Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Consulting for Decisionmakers
Diversity is not only good for business, but it is the right thing to do. Clients are increasingly demanding more evidence of more meaningful LGBTQ+ inclusion efforts. Change cannot happen without long-term buy-in from leadership.
Our comprehensive approach to assessing workplace culture engages those in positions of power to affect the most institutional change. We make the business case for LGBTQ+ inclusion to leadership, and offer hands-on technical assistance for DEI professionals, Human Resources, management, and other decisionmakers to ensure that your company has the most up-to-date and innovative LGBTQ+ policies and practices. We work in consultation with existing LGBTQ+ internal leadership, such as employee resource groups and affinity groups, to leverage support for and retain employees, attract new talent, and empower LGBTQ+ employees and allies to address the unique challenges faced by employees in your company. Our programming is designed to provide a deeper dive into LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace and to meet your specific needs. We help you actualize your vision of your workplace as a leading champion of LGBTQ+ inclusion.
