Diversity & Inclusion Services
The identities we hold and the experiences we live shape our ways of thinking about people, relationships, organizations and work. These identities and experiences inform every leader’s style and worldview, whether they know it or not.
Demonstrating value for the benefits of identity-diverse teams and cultivating inclusive organizations and communities are baseline requirements of brilliant leadership.
YSC Consulting helps our partner organizations build a strong talent base, comprised of intellectually, culturally and stylistically diverse professionals while creating the conditions for them to leverage their distinct capabilities toward breakthrough performance.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“Over the past few years, we’ve had the pleasure of partnering with the YSC team on our diversity, inclusion and belonging work. At the heart of this is leadership, and the individuals at YSC truly understand how to meet the leaders where they are and then build challenging, thoughtful and tailored programs that challenge each individual to grow.
They are creative and focused on our needs, and while they share great practices from other companies, they never expect us to just pick something off the shelf.”CHRO, Nordstrom
“YSC has worked as an extension of our own team to ensure our D&I program was a thumping success. The research base, passion and benchmarks that YSC brought to this issue made them a credible partner. In addition, the flexibility they showed in working with us in an emergent manner, staying alive to feedback we were receiving through the process, and pushing themselves and us to be cutting edge in what we were doing for our talent, made this initiative a huge success for the bank.”LTROD Head, Global Bank
