Training and Development Coordinator
Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District
I participated in a training with Sara at the Utah Chapter Association of Talent Development. As an experienced HR professional, I observed how she effortlessly drew engagement from the whole group. She reinforced inclusive concepts by integrating those concepts into the way she trained, which is the sign of a masterful teacher. Her topic "Inclusive Mindset Skills for Working with Diverse Groups" drew a particularly high attendance which she handled with ease. I valued her energetic style and ability to resonate with participants so much that I invited her to provide training for our organization on several important topics - employee development, accountability, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence. I'm excited to have Sara as an asset to support our training efforts.
CEO, Hero Devs and
Lead Organizer ngconf
I co-organize the world’s premier ng-conf software development conference. Having seen Sara in action in many tech events, I invited Sara to come on board at ng-conf as an organizer - specifically to leverage her expertise on diversity and inclusion. We brought InclusionPro early on in planning for ngconf 2019 to ensure that our conference was as welcoming to our community as possible. As a key Google partner, we highly value our attendee experience. Sara has helped us refine how we engage our audience. She tactfully pushes us when our process needs improvement and ensures that attendee experience is top of mind. We have valued her ongoing strategic guidance. She is fantastic to work with.
EVP, Zions Bank
Zions banking footprint covers several states which create many employment opportunities as well as unique challenges. Executive management wants to hire a diverse employee base across these regions, so our D&I strategy has some complexities most companies don't experience. Sara was very helpful in researching best practices for Employee Resource Groups across larger companies. I appreciated having her experience and broad network to draw from. Her recommendations helped me test out some new ideas as our executive team works to shape diversity and inclusion strategies in our ever-evolving industry.
VP of Community, Veracity Solutions
Our team just went through InclusionPro's unconscious bias training the last few weeks and had a great experience. It included team bonding elements which kept our teammates engaged while they learned about diversity. The team appreciated learning about a wide range of diversity characteristics. Most importantly, Sara's training provided a plethora of practical examples so that our team members could understand what unconscious bias looks like - and an open dialogue on how we can be mindful and obtain honest, helpful feedback on our inclusion journey. I would recommend this training for teams who want a fun, practical and interactive way of learning about unconscious bias.
President & CEO, Veracity Solutions
As a female leader in a male dominated industry, I am acutely aware that bias takes many forms, most of which are unintended. As I’ve worked to help our organization be more inclusive, it’s become evident that unconscious bias impacts us in ways that are not obvious in the short-term, but that can present significant challenges in the long-term. Being proactive to better manage our culture is essential as we work to “up our game” in the face of an increasingly competitive employment market.
We were pleased to have Sara of Inclusion Pro spend time with our team. She made a challenging and sensitive topic interesting, engaging, and even fun. While we didn’t solve all our issues, our team members left with greater appreciation for each other and greater sensitivity to the subtle issues of diversity, and the impact of creating greater inclusivity.
Founder & CEO, Infini D
Our most recent job posting attracted many talented applicants, but not a single diverse candidate. We reached out to Sara and she immediately spotted processes that needed to change for us to attract diverse talent. We went from 0% diverse job candidates to 70% diverse job candidates overnight, thanks to her help. In the end, we had three candidates that stood out above and beyond the others, two of which were from the diverse candidates that applied after Sara helped us make the needed changes. As a startup, we know how critical each hire can be. Ensuring we are getting the best applicants possible starts with ensuring we are pulling from as diverse of a pool as possible. We are thrilled to have Sara partner with us as we continue growing our company.
Founder & CEO, Blyncsy
I hired Sara about a year after Blyncsy was founded, particularly to leverage her executive experience in building culture. One of my priorities was building a strong founding team. Sara came in weekly, coached team members, and partnered with me to work on areas of improvements. She observed and facilitated team trainings, with a focus on inclusive behavior. I know that that early work and investment helped give us a strong start to the great team we have today.
