About Us

The Inclusion Firm is a global consulting practice that focuses on integrating inclusive strategies into nonprofit and philanthropic environments.

The Inclusion Firm brings a wealth of experience and distinction to your work. We are inclusive nonprofit and philanthropic experts who have spent decades as industry leaders adapting ‚Äúbest practices‚ÄĚ into ‚Äúbetter practices.‚ÄĚ

As current and former nonprofit leaders, we understand the nuances of the nonprofit world and every team member’s role. We know what your day is like, we are aware of typical policies and procedures, and we are knowledgeable of national models and frameworks.

Considering generational shifts, our ultimate goal is to partner with clients in maximizing organizational outcomes and objectives by developing modern strategies to create more inclusive cultures.


 Building an Inclusive Culture

Our consulting philosophy is based on shaping an organization’s culture, which in turn transforms behavioral change. Beginning with awareness, assessing where and how it shows up, developing an aspirational plan, and then implementing actionable next steps with accountability benchmarks. Success occurs when organizations move from awareness to action with accountability.


Shared knowledge and understanding of the national landscape, relevant research, and implications for effective engagement and collaboration, together with a shared commitment to change and growth.


Discovering and exploring organizational strengths, values, false assumptions, and unconscious behaviors that impede progress, gaps, potential, and readiness for change and growth.


Your vision. Where do you want to be? What are your measurable goals? Develop and implement aspirational, intentional, and measurable plans for improvements.

Action with Accountability

Design, adapt systems, and structures for behavioral change. Inclusive integration and implementation. Tracking, evaluating, and celebrating success.

Operationalizing Inclusivity

Are you struggling to create actionable outcomes? We help clients integrate inclusive principles and into the daily operations, policies, and culture of an organization. It involves translating the values and goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion into tangible and actionable steps that become embedded in the organization's routine activities, rather than isolated initiatives.


‚ÄúInclusivity means not ‚Äėjust we‚Äôre allowed to be there,‚Äô but we are valued. I‚Äôve always said: smart teams will do amazing things, but truly diverse teams will do impossible things.‚Ä̬†
