"As an executive team, we chose to partner with InclusionINC because they actively listened to our needs and provided the best customized solution for us rather than pushing an off-the-shelf approach.

Shirley Engelmeier (CEO of InclusionINC) and her team conducted a Current State Analysis that resulted in a holistic Inclusion and Diversity Strategy for SCI. They demonstrated great professionalism and business savvy mapping the qualitative data from interviews and focus groups with quantitative data from their cutting-edge interactive web-based survey dashboard.

I found InclusionINC to be an exceptional partner and would highly recommend them to any organization looking to create sustainable change in the Inclusion and Diversity space."
