Our Team

At CORE Perspectives, we believe all organizations can create an environment where everyone can thrive, but to accomplish this, we know it's not enough to just have a diverse group of employees. You have to create an environment where all employees feel welcome, respected, and encouraged to share their unique perspective with the team. That's why we've created a team of consultants who represent various lived experiences and generational perspectives. From Baby Boomers to Gen Z, our consultants come from a wide range of backgrounds that inform our philosophy for working with our clients. We believe in cultivating an environment where everyone is heard and valued for their unique perspective, so that organizations can thrive from within.

Model of Consultation

Our model is distinctive and goes beyond the typical DEI services provided by other consultants. We believe that if you want real change, you need to get down to the core of an organization’s culture, its mission and vision, and how it interacts with its customers. We take a strategic foresight perspective to reduce resistance to change and help our clients think about their organization in innovative ways.

Rather than a one-time effort, we treat the process of advancing diversity, equity and inclusion as a journey, which requires an intentional, stepped approach. Focusing on actions that reduce resistance to change first can help organizations more effectively implement inclusion and equity efforts, whether they are committed to becoming more diverse or just want to improve their overall organizational health. Additionally, we believe that engaging with key stakeholders throughout the process offers additional insight into the potential impact that these changes can have at all levels of the organization.
