CULTURE 

IBI: INNOVATION BY INCLUSION 

Forward-thinking companies know we need NEW ways to take ACTION

to achieve successful and lasting innovation.

We can help. 

We help companies create a more innovative, engaged and inclusive culture.

“Diversity of thought” is a competitive advantage in an innovation economy. Yet, data shows a dismal lack of diversity around board tables. Or “one person” is put there to represent ALL the diverse thinking. Plus, with stories of harassment and pay gaps dominating the news, people are walking on eggshells and not sure what to do, what to say and how to best work with each other.

Our work with thousands of women has given us frontline insights that can help companies with specific action steps to get men and women actively engaged in the solution. It’s not about pointing fingers or thinking it’s a “women’s issue.” It’s about finding a positive and practical way to get everyone on the same side of the table – so we all win.
