30 Black DEI Consultants & Professionals You Should Know About

February 24, 2023

We know that engaging in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is simply good for business. In fact, Mckinsey reported that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35 percent more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians. Though the bottom line is essential, DEI professionals help develop the culture and a sense of belonging in organizations that is crucial to the overall health of companies. 

Black DEI professionals possess unique skills and knowledge that can provide cultural insight and understanding of a company’s diversity efforts internally or externally. They can also provide invaluable guidance on best practices for creating inclusive workplaces for all employees.

We are highlighting the following professionals as friends of Mathison because of their work and commitment to making the world a better place through DEI principles.
