The Leadership Development Group is committed to supporting organizations on their journey toward creating a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive workforce by offering the following ED&I support:

· *Diversity Dialogues/Listening Circles *- TLD Group works with organizations to surface deeply rooted issues of inequity that present unique challenges for everyone in the organization through facilitated open discussions to promote positive and lasting change.
· *Assessment and Coaching* - Using researched and proven diagnostics to help leaders understand where they are on their ED&I journey, TLD Group helps identify strengths and opportunities through our assessment and executive coaching, which explores the implications of leaders' beliefs and facilitates actions to support ED&I strategies for positive change.
· *Culture Shaping* - Incorporating ED&I into a corporate culture starts with a recruitment strategy for attracting a more diverse pool of candidates - and building a robust talent pipeline to attract, develop, mentor, retain and sponsor diverse leaders and employees at all levels.
· *Leadership Academies* - TLD Group designs and delivers inclusion learning journeys for employees at all levels, and offers high impact development programs for diverse cohorts of underrepresented talent that incorporates the role of sponsorship as an effective way to overcome network gaps, another systemic and structural issue that further increases inequality.
