What We Do


our approach

We subscribe to the disruptive innovation adoption model by Clay Christensen (1952-2020), Harvard Business School Professor

We believe that diversity, equality and inclusion must be established by the CEO as a business imperative

The CEO and CHRO/CDO and GCs are the innovators of the initiative

Like other business imperatives, the senior leadership team must be aligned and bought in before cascading the initiative throughout the organization (these leaders serve as the early adopters)

The early adopters are charged with influencing the early majority for the initiative to become a part of the DNA of the organization

Leadership must ensure that either equity, equality, or inclusion is a stated company value

Elevate The Middle

Everyone talks about the frozen middle being critical to creating inclusive cultures. Its true!  Inclusion will never thrive until we engage middle level leaders who play a significant role in the overall employee experience. Their leadership impacts the company's ability to maintain talent thus impacting the pipeline. Our strategies engage and elevate the middle by developing their leadership capabilities and establishing inclusive leadership behaviors. When the middle is elevated, they can catalyze the  most skeptical and turn them from resisters to early adopters.

Achieving Inclusion Requires Cultural Transformation

Traditional approaches to advancing diversity and inclusion don’t work. In fact, in many ways, the efforts have stalled if not caused a regression.

We believe that to truly move the needle and obtain results, disruptive strategies must be applied. This model provides an overview of our innovative and disruptive approach and process.
