Our Keynote:

In our unique “ensemble keynote,” we focus on the micro moments as DEI speakers—the little things you didn’t know mattered—and provide truly diverse perspectives—not “one size fits all” answers. Our work complements the academic research with decades of hands-on operating experience and real world examples. Our approach is designed to engage all genders through humor and storytelling—which we believe is the key to unlock action.

Check out our Speaker Reel.

Target Audience:

We speak to men and women, as leaders and witnesses, about becoming allies against gender bias in the workplace. As DEI keynote speakers, we are trusted voices willing to tell the truth about corporate culture and make a difference in engagement and retention.
