Culture is invisible so it's critical to be intentional.

-Khalilah Lyons, Founder

Why DEI Matters

Organizations who recruit, hire and retain employees from diverse backgrounds are more innovative, profitable, and enjoy more employee satisfaction. Did you know:

Ethnic Diversity

In 2019, organizations in the top quartile for ethnic and cultural diversity outperformed their competitors in the bottom quartile by 36%. [1]

Gender Diversity

Companies with more than 30% women executives were more likely to outperform companies with fewer or no women executives. [1]

Job Satisfaction

Workers who are satisfied with their company's DEI initiatives are happier with their jobs. [2]
