Our DEI Strategy creates unity and a true sense of belonging for all.  

Traditional Diversity and Inclusion "Programs" simply haven't worked. Why? These programs tend to address a moment in time, a knee-jerk reaction, a check mark on a surface-level to-do list. Many of these efforts have existed as an initiative that could be "a one and done.”

Our approach is about transformation.

We have partnered with Mesh Diversity and The Opportunity Agenda as well as our team of diversity consultants to go beyond a program and enact genuine social change within your company culture.

In order to evolve, we need to address the entire system of an organization and address both the visible and invisible practices, policies, and biases that shape culture and experience. We ground ourselves in each organization’s unique starting point to understand how diversity is appreciated and embedded, and only from there can true transformation begin.

Reasons Traditional “Diversity Training Programs” Fail (Forbes)
• Resistance
• Improper Implementation
• Lack of Consistency
• Lack of Leadership Buy-in
• Drop the Label (“Diversity Training”)

67% Of job seekers consider workplace diversity an important factor when considering employment opportunities, and more than 50% of current employees want their workplace to do more to increase diversity. (Glassdoor)


We believe that in order for people to work better together, we have to widen our circle of trust.

Our Partnerships with mental health experts, DEI experts and the following make this work possible:

We build on the current state of your organization to create a relevant starting point for growth. Considering learning at both an individual and team level, we map opportunities across the entire employee experience and build customized solutions from there. Using data discovery, workshops, leadership development, conversation cohorts, and applied learning tools, we ensure our work is immersive, actionable, and will resonate beyond any one session or interaction to truly transform diversity, equity, and inclusion within your organization.  

We approach this work by deeply considering the following in the context of DEI:  

• Your unique baseline for awareness and willingness
• Existing cultural norms, perceptions, and opportunities (leveraging survey insights)
• The entire employee experience (attract, hire, onboarding, feedback and performance, growth and opportunity, and transition)
• Impactful pre-work and post-work to ensure transformation maintains momentum
• Equity, analyzing hiring, opportunity, and rewards/pay
• Learning and awareness around social justice in and out of your organization

The livingHR We Belong Pledge

livingHR believes everyone should have access to opportunities and know what it feels like when "We Belong". Belonging and celebrating our whole-selves has been woven into our Culture Code as an organization since 2009. We believe that in order to support belonging, we must use our voices to advocate for social justice, human rights, pay equity, equality, representation, and equal opportunity. We know bringing humanity to work, celebrating the differences we have as humans, and developing empathetic and inclusive leaders is a social impact that we can create and one that will live on.

Join our We Belong pledge to:
• Amplify the voices that need to be heard.
• Unite in our wildly different personal experiences to bring together open-minds and encourage innovation.
• Live boldly into our truths, bringing our whole-selves to the work we do and the team we do it with.
• Act with consideration for people, without exception.
• Learn from and celebrate the life stories that build our awareness and allow us to think beyond self.
