Our Fractional CDOs stand as strategic partners. We work closely with Executives and Board members to bring about organizational transformation and cultural excellence.

Best for:

  • Medium and large enterprises with little to no dedicated DEI capacity for reputation, crisis, and change management.
  • Enterprises in need of DEI experts to support the organization’s strategic vision. This includes crafting and implementing workplace training, strategies and policies.
  • Enterprises wanting to improve employee recruitment and retention to support revenue goals.

Why a Fractional CDO?

Our Fractional CDO services provide more than just DEI consulting. We become an integral part of your team, addressing specific pain points and fostering a culture of inclusivity. Here are just a few examples of how we can help:
