What We Do
We are a leading provider of strategic inclusion services.
We deliver sustainable operational improvements by doing four things very well:
1. Deliver the business case: We enlist and engage leaders throughout organizations through robust, data-driven research on the accretive value of expanding the talent lens
2. Facilitate change: We drive the mental shifts needed for this awareness with customizable seminars, workshops, and programs
3. Boost returns and mitigate risks: Via our Helix products, which can also generate a Seal of Approval
4. Provide high-impact advisory assistance: Across all levels of management from Board and C-level to middle management
These capabilities draw on data, experience, and our gender.
Data: From industry to primary research, our deliverables leverage both the rapidly expanding body of knowledge around the causes of, and solutions to, inclusion-based topics, and the human elements that are critical to establishing the specific context required for optimal impact.
Experience: We draw on a unique mix of backgrounds that include strategy, turnaround, and engagement consulting, investment banking, software, human resources, diversity & inclusion, executive recruiting and coaching, and workshop formulation and delivery.
Gender: From our travels and research, it is considerably easier getting men to buy in if the case is made by another man, preferably with a similar background and who can speak male business dialect. While our facilitators and delivery staff come from all backgrounds, our Founder and Chief Delivery Officer are both men with strong leadership, management and educational experiences.
Want to boost returns and mitigate risks (especially the Controversy/Headline variety) with industry best practices that are linked to financial performance?
Need to establish a baseline for your ongoing inclusion efforts?
Want to position your brand in a favorable light to:
Consumers that make 85% of buying decisions

Clients who are looking to be serviced by progressive firms
Talent pools, of both genders, who want to work in an inclusive and diverse environment
Our Helix line of products, and our League Seals of Approval, may be of interest. The Helix process is based on a proprietary data collection and assessment tool that spans 11 categories, from Leadership to Talent Acquisition to Legal.
Recommendations are prioritized by potential financial impact on the firm, based on industry best practices. There are four versions:
The Double Helix: Our most comprehensive offering. Molded for mature or PE portfolio companies who want to leverage best practices to boost their valuation and/or establish a baseline
The Growth Helix: A scaled-down version of the Double, configured for the specific needs, scale, and budgets of start-ups and rapidly growing firms, including PE portfolio companies depending on their level of maturity
The GP Helix: Draws on distinct aspects of the Helix to assess relative gender parity. Designed to build and augment relations with LPs.
The Asset Manager Helix: Focuses the process on top-of-mind inclusion-related elements. Conceived to support the attraction and retention on HNW, Families, and Institutional clients.
All Helix offerings include in-depth interviews with key leaders, surveys of particular employee demographics, and an up-front presentation to key leaders and managers to provide context for the process and what is to come.
Presentation & Workshop Overview
We want to provide not only recommendations, but practical tools, starting with awareness, to help you add to your bottom line.
The obstacles women and other diverse communities face to realize their potential are still daunting and everyone needs to be involved for marked and sustainable improvement to happen. And the absolutely last thing we believe women need to become is more manly.

Research from firms such as Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse is correlating significant increases in top and bottom lines, while reducing risk––with increasing female influences. This thought-provoking presentation will explore novel hypotheses around this topic, while also introducing some compelling perspective behind the history and future of women in leadership.
