DEI Facilitation & Consulting Services
DEI Facilitation & Consulting solves critical diversity, equity and inclusion issues facing all types and sizes of corporate, nonprofit, university or governmental entities. Mr. Small brings credible expertise to each engagement based on his experiences as a person of color who journeyed through the uncharted “pipeline” of social and professional development from Head Start, to a public school education in a small southern town, to Harvard College, University of Virginia School of Law, Holland & Knight and beyond to national leadership posts.
With many concrete program achievements in the Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) field, let Mr. Small help you to facilitate honest dialogue about your organization's most sensitive diversity, equity and inclusion topics and then help develop and implement customized diversity training and other solutions that promote mutual understanding and a basis for true collaboration among the various constituencies of your organization, including its management, HR, legal and other administrative, business, employees, customers and surrounding communities.
Program Design and Implementation
Looking for an outside assessment of the effectiveness of ongoing diversity, equity and inclusion programs? Let Mr. Small draw upon his many experiences designing and managing start-up initiatives to assist your organization with an independent evaluation of return on investment of ongoing programs as well as with conceptual design, start-up and management of new initiatives that better align with your current organizational objectives.
