Leadership and organizational transformation is a learning journey. The work of sustainable diversity, equity and inclusion requires transformational change for individuals, leaders and organizations. As with any journey, you need a roadmap to get from where you are to where you want to be.
While 68% of CEOs say they have a diversity initiative, fewer than 35% tie their DEI work to their core business strategy. InclusionPro teaches leaders how to build an integrated approach to DEI that becomes the DNA of your business.
This transformational process creates the foundation to scale equitable practices and accountability across your organization through:
The InclusionPro Journey
Our leadership team was pleased that the final strategic plan included a logical and practical framework that felt true to UTA and its strategic direction. We were impressed that throughout their work, InclusionPro ensured that leaders felt ownership in and capable of executing the final plan. They were there to guide us, challenge us, and help us identify the right approach for where our organization is starting and where we want to be.
Chief People Officer
We wanted a DEI consultant who deeply understood law firm dynamics. Sara understood the challenges of building alignment across very distinct stakeholders - partners, associates and agents, and operations staff. InclusionPro has been a valuable strategic partner to support the groundwork and expectations being laid by Klarquist Management, DEI and Mentorship Committees.
Partner and Intellectual Property Attorney
Sara's not one to wait for change; she's a force of nature who actively shapes it. Her proactive work securing a Utah state resolution in support of our cause was a game-changer. Witnessing her navigate complex political landscapes with grace and unwavering conviction is a masterclass in advocacy. I would recommend Sara for any high-level strategy needing an experienced professional who partners with you for effective outcomes.
While the humanities naturally embrace many aspects of equity, InclusionPro prepared a cultural analysis and equity strategy to help us focus our Vision, Mission and Values with an equity lens. InclusionPro also designed a framework to help embed equity in our organizational decision-making.
The District engaged InclusionPro to conduct a cultural analysis and provide strategic direction on developing a unified vision that embeds diversity, inclusion and equity. The cultural analysis helped the JVWCD leadership team envision how to authentically integrating DEI in our vision, mission and values.
We partnered with InclusionPro to kick-off our recent board strategy meetings with a transformative DEI alignment workshop. I was impressed with how well InclusionPro understood board and leadership dynamics, and how they artfully created a brave and creative learning space for all board members to learn and engage. InclusionPro’s content and delivery is first class.
We appreciated InclusionPro’s innovative thinking on how to propel our culture through company-wide alignment. This is not an easy task for an outside consultant or facilitator, which they appeared to complete effortlessly.

Sara provided thoughtful and strategic leadership training, reworked the inclusion committee’s mission statement around inclusive values, and gave the group a myriad of best practices. This experience was invaluable for our organization and taught leaders at our organization what inclusion actually means. I would recommend InclusionPro to anyone looking to implement this type of work.
Senior Director, Brand Marketing
We piloted the Lift Up! Training with almost 70 of our top leaders in technology and product. Leaders could immediately apply the learning on their teams, shortening time to impact. InclusionPro was agile in understanding our learning needs and time constraints.
eBay Operations Manager & Women@eBay Finance Director
Sara was incredibly helpful coming into the picture and finding out what we had already done and our interests. The new piece we're piloting is inclusive teams. We will likely spend the bulk of this year and at least half of next year training on inclusive teams with the help of Sara and InclusionPro.
Director of Leadership and Organizational Development
This year, we’re rolling out training that will be done by our people internally to all of our employees worldwide. It’s something that we’ll continue throughout the year. There is a culture change to have more attention paid to [D&I]. We really appreciate Sara; she and her team at InclusionPro have been marvelous.
Chief Learning Development Officer
Sara provided content strategy to scale an Inclusive Leadership training to our entire global workforce (13 sites, 1400+ employees). This was no small feat. She came with a depth of experience in building online courses, live training, and program implementation which allowed her to effectively partner with us to launch a blended learning program in less than 3 months. Her training model was a very effective way to engage all of our employees on inclusion, diversity and belonging.
Sr. Director and Head of D&I, Corporate Communications
"Not many executives can match Sara’s level of passion, diverse thinking, and ability to foster open dialogue on technology, innovation, and elevating human capital. She influences meaningful action on the Intermountain Healthcare Salt Lake Valley Hospital Board and also guides senior executives within the organization to operationalize D&I strategies."
Chair of the Board of Trustees
It takes constant communication to develop authentic relationships with everyone on our team and across the organization. InclusionPro really helped us see that. This new way of ‘being’ needs to come from the top — from us, the leadership team. We need to have a mutual education and a constant intentional focus on this.
Co-Founder and Principal
Sara possesses a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help me stay laser-focused on my organization's vision. Sara has also opened doors to incredible partnerships that have fueled our growth. Beyond that, she genuinely cares about my well-being, encouraging me to become a more effective leader and a more balanced individual. I highly recommend Sara for business and leadership coaching.
Transitioning from Salt Lake City, Utah to a European law firm in 2019 required strategic adaptation. I wanted to be well-prepared to add business value to this new firm. I sought coaching from Sara Jones, a recognized leader in both legal and business domains. Sara’s focused on practical and personalized strategies: leveraging my skillset, building strategic networks, and identifying impactful opportunities. The lessons learned have been foundational as I continue to evolve professionally.
Many organizations benefit from executive, management and career coaching on a more individual basis.
