Wow! So many good examples. I work for a public company that is very highly rated on inclusion.
However, I learned more in an hour from Femily than I have learned in years. Thank you for opening my eyes to many considerations.
I will be a better leader due to this.

Industry Research + Company Data + Individual Input.
With a big firm background in management consulting and organizational change - and an MA in gender/cultural studies - Femily (aka Emily Howe) advises tech and other male-majority companies, like law and finance to help them advance womxn, foster inclusion of all kinds, and reduce workplace bias.
Her linear, evidence-based [intersectional feminist] approach looks at what research - plus individual company data - says is not working well (from recruiting to retention to promotions).
Then, she helps her clients design and implement customized solutions based on what the latest research says works to fix those issues.
+ I love talking to the MEDIA
As a Gender/Cultural Studies MA with a big firm management consulting background, Femily advises Silicon Valley and other male-majority sectors and teams, like law, finance, and engineering – on gender, equity, and building an ally culture.
Femily brings much-needed changes and insights to Fortune 100 companies, Bay Area-based tech companies, national law / consulting / accounting firms, and individual business leaders.
From Silicon Valley's Watermark Conference for Women to San Francisco's Commonwealth Club, Femily frequently speaks to companies, conferences, and women's events. She is an expert media source for outlets such as C-SPAN, KQED, Fast Company, Bustle, The Telegraph, and Thrive Global by Arianna Huffington.
Femily's popular, digital "Rebel Boss" leadership courses give ambitious womxn concrete, evidence-based instruction on leading as a womxn in today's world, rebelling against dis-empowering "shoulds," outsmarting all "isms", and making big life/business plans that really "stick."
In 2018, Femily founded the American Association of Corporate Gender Strategists to address a growing demand for rigor and best practices in the field. That same year, she launched San Francisco's Executive Womxn's forum at the Commonwealth Club. Femily serves on the board of Inforum, the innovation lab for the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum.
