Our Solution-Focused Approach

MLT’s Advisory Services will lead you down a strategic path for DEI and away from “random acts of diversity” that don’t yield results. Achieving diversity, equity and inclusion isn’t possible by rolling out mandatory training sessions or celebrating cultural heritage months alone. It takes a clear vision, concrete objectives, and a plan to achieve them – the same requirements to succeed in your business. Our solutions are designed to help you:

  • Gain insight into the root causes driving inequity at your organization and uncover the biggest areas of opportunity to change your current state
  • Develop rigorous business strategies for DEI and identify the right tactics that will move the needle on results
  • Implement strategies and plans based on what we’ve seen work at other organizations (e.g., how to redesign and improve recruitment processes, launch and leverage Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), or monitor and report DEI progress) 
  • Orient, engage, and activate leaders at all levels in taking responsibility for diversity, equity, and inclusion

What Our Clients are Saying

“Our engagement with MLT delivered on several fronts – most importantly, in building out a framework that would allow us to better understand and articulate our priorities as we work toward a more equitable [organization]…As we accelerated these efforts – with renewed and sustained urgency alongside and in support of a racial equity and justice movement and during a pandemic – we would not have been able to adjust as thoughtfully without the foundational work we had established with MLT.

“This [current state assessment of underrepresented employee experience] is the best report of its kind that I have ever received in my career.”

“This information was presented so well with a factual approach and historical basis…The best presentation on this stuff that I’ve seen.

“You told us what we needed to hear, when we needed to hear it, and will forever impact our culture.

“[The CEO] was really happy…and thought we made a real impact—getting past the “debate” stage to begin to acknowledge the systemic realities, their sources, and their current impact.”

“We’re as committed as ever to our D&I strategy! It’s been an incredible asset to have such a well-planned roadmap.

“[MLT was] an amazing partner…through the entire process of identifying opportunities, building our vision/mission statements, goals and overall strategy. I would strongly recommend MLT for future work and clients!”
