Creating a brighter future for educational, healthcare and corporate diversity

There is no one-size-fits all solution to lasting diversity, inclusion, and equity. By leveraging 50+ years of combined expertise and research on intergroup relationships, social structure, social-cognitive sciences, management, business sciences and more, we develop practical, custom-tailored solutions to complex educational, healthcare and corporate diversity challenges.

Where It Began

As the research arm behind Diversity Science, the Institute for Equity & Inclusion Sciences (IEIS) conducts primary research into the science of diversity. IEIS is a partnership of scientists and professionals that actively contributes to the massive body of evidence on equity and inclusion. This partnership aims to expand the collective understanding of full inclusion to ensure that community, organizational, institutional, and corporate diversity best practices align with current science-supported findings.

Our Journey

We Saw a Big Problem

The massive body of scientific evidence on creating true equity and inclusion is dense, complex, and hard to interpret without deep expertise. We noticed that, as a result, too many well intended D&I trainers and consultants misinterpret or misapply the evidence. At best these efforts have no effect and at worst they do harm.

1

Lack of Genuine Diversity

Creating real diversity, inclusion, and equity is a tricky challenge and common-sense ideas often do not work. As a result, many current approaches fail — and often may make things worse.

2

We Had to Act

We are a team of equity and inclusion scientists who have partnered with experienced D&I organizational leaders. We recognize that creating just, equitable and fully inclusive environments is essential to organizational effectiveness and ultimately organizational survival.

3

Bridging the Divide

The key organizational characteristics that create a truly positive diversity climate can be achieved, but the path is complex and not always straightforward. Using scientific findings and proven methodologies, we translate the evidence into positive action with real impact.

This Is Important

Achieving real inclusion and equity is imperative — and we all need to get it right. Leveraging the strongest evidence and most effective tools is the best strategy to reaching D&I goals.
