HI, I'M FEMILY
silicon valley's gender/inclusion EXPERT
"Femily really got our leaders moving beyond the usual "diversity conversations."
-Chief Diversity Officer
"Femily gave us innovative, data-backed solutions that worked for our unique team and industry."
-VP of Engineering
With a big firm background in management consulting and organizational change - and an MA in gender/cultural studies - Femily (aka Emily Howe) consults with tech companies to help them advance womxn, foster inclusion of all kinds, and reduce workplace bias.
Her linear, evidence-based approach looks at what company data says is an issue (from recruiting to retention to cultural norms), and pairs those issues with what the latest research says is the solution to fix those specific issues.
No "feel-good" programming without goals.
