Private Consulting

Tailored, hands-on work for organizations committed to fostering belonging

Replace bias with belonging.

Every organization has its blind spots — and as many leaders and DEI professionals are discovering, what we can’t see can hurt us.

You’re under constant pressure from inside and outside to create a more inclusive culture, but you may find your efforts falling short. This can create frustration and demoralization and hold otherwise productive working groups hostage to conflict, lost productivity, and high turnover.

Navigating through those blind spots requires an experienced guide. As an experienced C-suite executive and longtime practitioner of belonging practices, Empower Initiative CEO Ben McBride helps leaders seize the opportunity to lead change amid deeply rooted implicit bias that we all face.

Through insightful questioning and deep listening, Ben will work personally with your leaders to build strategies that break through barriers and foster a culture of belonging.
