Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe culture, equity and inclusion is about the creation of a shared and common experience rooted in the inherent value of all people.

Our CEI specialty focuses on helping organizations evolve existing DEI practices into cultures intentionally rooted in inclusive behaviors, systems and processes.

Where we can help you

CEI brings together a team of DEI practitioners, change management experts, public affairs specialists and communicators who sit at the intersection of a powerful, integrated network. We ensure stated DEI commitments and investments are more than mere words on a page; they are tangible, visible manifestations of how the organization operates.

Our areas of expertise

Our bespoke approach is data-backed, culture-centered and focused on driving meaningful change for employees, customers and communities. We strive to help organizations embed their values and embody inclusion in every operation, every interaction, every communication and every strategic decision.

  • Advancing Culture

    We advance cultures by quantitatively and qualitatively assessing them. By examining systems, policies, and practices for alignment to stated values and desired outcomes. By forging strategies that tackle the root causes of inequity rather than its symptoms. And by evolving, through experiential learning, the leadership behaviors that establish cultural norms.  

  • Enhancing Brand Power

    We enhance brand power by crafting brand narratives that resonate with internal as well as external audiences. By aligning external messaging to internal policy and practice, achieving 100% brand consistency. And by positioning our clients so they are seen as moral leaders as well as market leaders.

  • Addressing Risk

    We manage reputation risk by revealing where it’s likely to come from, when it’s likely to occur, and what it’s likely to be. By coaching leaders how to take preemptive action. And by equipping leaders with a decision framework that allows them to determine when to take a stand on hot-button issues, what position to take, and which stakeholders to address.
