If C-suite leaders aren’t in alignment about what Belonging means, how can you expect that from the rest of the organization?
I’ve been at this for a few decades, so if there’s one thing I’ve mastered with hundreds of C-suite executive teams, it’s this: fostering a deep sense of Belonging.
Now it’s your turn.
You’ve already built a values-driven leadership team that runs on the principle of doing the right thing.
But there is more work to be done in Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging, and it has to start with the C-suite.
Because it’s not really about hitting numbers or meeting quotas. It’s about doing the right thing.
If you’re building an organization that wants to live up to its values and desires real cultural change, you need TRUST among C-suite leaders, who then role model inclusive leadership traits to the rest of the organization from the top through the front lines.
You deserve to have an organization where everyone feels like they truly belong, no matter what their background is.
Let me guide your C-suite leaders toward greater belonging, so you can see a noticeable shift in your entire enterprise and a significant improvement in workforce sustainability.
Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Consulting for the C-Suite
Let’s create cultural shifts that cascade from the top through the front lines to ensure every employee feels like they truly belong.
The way I see it, consulting should never be cookie-cutter because every organization is different—thus, my approach to every client relationship is as unique as your workforce:
I don’t allow shame and blame from anyone. I never want anyone to feel talked down to. I meet people where they are. We focus always on opportunities to know and grow.
I don’t believe in check-the-box initiatives—which don’t work— instead, we get to the root with change-the-culture behaviors that align with your values.
I don’t try to get any executive to passively reach agreement. Rather, we raise your awareness as a person and develop real relationships that transcend race relations.
Ways to work together
The Diversity Dynamics Certification Program
For executive leaders who want to integrate Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging enterprise-wide, by starting with the C-suite.
This is a 3-phased approach spanning a 12–18 month commitment, as it begins with the C-suite and cascades to direct reports.
By assessing Organizational Readiness within the C-suite, reinforcing Foundations of Trust among C-suite leaders, and experiencing a Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Mastermind, together we’ll create a Strategic Inclusion Plan for your C-suite to shape the employee experience, ignite employee engagement and sustain your workforce.

“I have seen her in action, in front of all-size groups as a speaker and facilitator.”
"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dr. Anita for approximately ten years.
I have seen her in action, in front of all-size groups as a speaker and facilitator. Dr. Anita and I worked together as consultants, most recently with MGM in Las Vegas, facilitating D&I sessions for groups of 75-100 people throughout the organization.
Two of Dr. Anita’s many gifts are authenticity and the ability to connect with individuals at all levels within an organization. Dr. Anita has a way of sharing information that not only enables learning but creates an environment where participants feel safe to share and learn."
