Committed to Inclusivity

“Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked [and wanting] to dance.”

—Verna Myers, president, Verna Myers Consulting Group [ with Rosemary Ugboajah, president, Neka Creative ]

Let’s do more than invite people of a variety of backgrounds and experiences to the table. Let’s welcome all and dance together — for innovation, camaraderie, and mutual success.

  • “Thanks to your helpful sharing of resources, I landed a new job. Your advice provided action steps and structure to a daunting process. My past experiences with layoffs had affected my self-confidence. But you reminded me that the fundamentals still work: persistence, connections, applications, variety of search tactics. I have recommended you to my colleagues. You’re the best!”
