Be Diverse about Diversity and Inclusive about Inclusion 

Diversity and Inclusion Leaders work closely with senior managers in order to develop a strategy of clear D&I metrics which define objectives and demonstrate progress. 

Diversity and inclusion leaders face unique challenges and opportunities. Organizations can’t afford to ignore behavioral diversity and we help identify the degree to which this exists in your team or organization. Equipped with this information D&I leaders can ensure that talent is not ignored and unconscious bias is addressed.

TERRY CLARK Former DIRECTOR OF SALES & TRAINING, PLY GEM INDUSTRIES

“We profiled our bottom third and our top performers (top 4%) to see if there was a trend line profile. There was. Once we identified that, we began recruiting. We found that when the Forté profile along with their background, product knowledge, and communication skills, all aligned, we were more successful with getting that person into the selling mode than other groups.”
