–The District wanted to establish a comprehensive Diversity program tied to our strategic goals. Emily's organization development skills and her diversity philosophy were a perfect match. She has guided us through every phase of the program, gaining our trust and confidence. We established an organizational definition, ensured that senior management were leaders in diversity and completed a diversity assessment leading to a three action plan. In addition, we have purchased several of her training programs and she continues to facilitate our Diversity Council. Because of Emily's expertise, sensitivity to our culture and its employees, and overriding commitment to our success, we have an excellent program.
