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
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.
Director of Corporate Development and Social Responsibility
Sara’s positive influence in the community and especially related to helping individuals and companies strengthen their understanding of how diversity, equity, and inclusion can positively impact their careers and organizations, led us to working closely with her on an enterprise-wide strategic DEI initiative. She was critical in helping our organization critically think about how we could build on our long-standing values to strengthen our efforts in this area for all our Team Members.
People Solutions Director
Over the past few months, we have engaged InclusionPro to conduct Executive Strategy sessions, host our Inclusive Leadership pilot training, and consult on our program development. Sara's background and extensive experience as a company executive in the technology world make her uniquely positioned to deliver outstanding engagements. Her sessions stressed the importance of aligning diversity and inclusion with organizational goals. Sara challenged status quos without making anyone in the room feel defensive. Her tips and tricks also encouraged the D&I committee to think more strategically on how to structure our efforts to achieve sustainable success.
InclusionPro takes executive leaders through a personal and leadership transformation process to build Inclusive Leadership Strategies.

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
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 was incredibly helpful coming into the picture and finding out what we had already done and our interests. The next level was expanding upon our self-awareness and bias and answering the question, "How do we do inclusion?" Intermountain is big on certified coaches, and this year, we are working on developing inclusive coaches.
Director of Leadership and Organizational Development
Many organizations benefit from executive, management and career coaching on a more individual basis. Often, coaching enhances organizational DEI strategy to help focus on specific leadership needs or professional development. InclusionPro offers coaching in person or remotely, depending on specific organizational needs.
