The Vision behind Diversiology.IO’s Unique Approach


Our Why

As a former Chief Diversity Officer, I found myself in a constant struggle. I had a mission – to build an inclusive work environment that could foster innovation, drive performance, and resonate with our customers. I dreamed of a comprehensive solution that could effectively address all the DEI needs, from assessments and training to knowledge sharing and engagement strategies.

I wanted to authentically recognize the various dimensions of diversity, to learn from other industry leaders, to engage and train my teams effectively. But the constraints of time and budget posed a formidable challenge. Despite my unwavering commitment, it felt like I was constantly breaking my promise to the organization.

That’s when I realized – if the solution I needed didn’t exist, I would create it. And so, Diversiology.IO was born.

Whether you’re battling time or budget constraints, longing for a supportive community that offers expert guidance in driving DEI initiatives, or looking for practical ways to enhance your engagement and inclusivity aptitude, Diversiology.IO is here for you.

That’s Why We Built Diversiology.IO

To put it simply, Diversiology.IO is the resource I wished I had. And now, I’ve made it available for you. Together, let’s make our workplaces more inclusive and engaged!

Gap, Pivot and Solutions

The Gap:

As a functional leader seeking to create a more inclusive environment, I joined diversity councils and collaborated with consultants to drive positive change. I encountered a gap where the solutions provided by these efforts were not sufficient to address the specific needs and challenges faced by Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) and the change being driven when you do DEI “off the side of your desk” is just not enough.

The Pivot:

Recognizing this gap, I made a significant pivot in my career to become a Chief Diversity Officer for a tech SMB.

Another Gap:
As I embarked on my journey as an SMB diversity leader, I encountered the challenge of limited resources and support to effectively drive meaningful change within these organizations

Another Pivot:
Realizing the limitations of existing solutions, I took it upon myself to become part of the solution.

The Solution:

I founded Diversiology.IO to directly address the gaps and provide tailored support for SMBs in their diversity and inclusion efforts to drive more engaged and inclusive cultures.

Our Core Pillars

In my journey as a Chief Diversity Officer, I found traditional consultant model feel short. It seemed skewed towards larger enterprises, leaving small and midsize businesses (SMBs) grappling with unmet needs and high consulting costs. The lack of consultants with SMB experience only compounded the problem. I knew there had to be a better way, one that didn’t involve trading dollars for time with no guarantee of sustainable results.

That’s why Diversiology.IO is built upon three core pillars – Content, Coaching, and Collaboration. These pillars are designed to break away from the old-school consulting model and provide a tailored approach that caters specifically to the unique challenges of SMBs.

At Diversiology.IO, we believe in a better way to drive DEI initiatives to drive engaged and inclusive cultures- a way that understands your needs, respects your budget, and delivers substantial value. Our core pillars stand testament to this belief.
