Advisory Services
Activate a Winning D&I Strategy.

MLT ADVISORY SERVICES is a collection of researchers, strategists, and D&I experts who help institutions systemically change the landscape of organizations to support current and future diverse talent. MLT’s winning strategies are grounded in helping organizations strengthen three core components: accountability, know-how, and capacity. We equip teams with the strategies, best practices, and guidance to confidently execute on key initiatives that enable them to achieve ambitious diversity and inclusion goals. 

Our approach is rooted in powerful insights from more than fifteen years of coaching diverse talent. We leverage that expertise, plus key learnings from our work with more than 150 partner companies and organizations, to offer actionable advice and drive lasting results. 

We partner with institutions to uncover diversity and inclusion challenges and diagnose areas where company culture may be failing underrepresented employees. We then equip institutions with a winning formula, grounded in their existing culture, and in a deep understanding of underrepresented employee experiences.  MLT supports organizations as they implement a robust, sustainable, and enduring strategy with the ultimate goal of building a critical mass of underrepresented employees. 

The MLT EMPLOYER PLAYBOOK is our signature approach to Advisory Services engagements. We help design the organizational structure and approach to support successful execution and provide guidelines on how to keep key leaders and their teams accountable to the progression of D&I strategies. Our Playbook includes four key components:
