By 2025 more than half the families with children in the U.S. are projected to be multi-ethnic.

The non-Hispanic white population is projected to peak in 2024, at 199.6 million. Unlike all other race or ethnic groups, however, the non-Hispanic white population is projected to slowly decrease.

The Hispanic population is projected to reach almost 20% of the U.S. labor force by the year 2020. Hispanic employment has grown more than 16% since 2000, while overall U.S. employment has barely grown 2%.

This is the new employee pool.

To compete in the global marketplace, companies face talent challenges. And when it comes to multicultural women, they may not be addressing the additional cultural nuances appropriately. Making it even more difficult to compete.

We can help you. We will accelerate the career growth of your diverse employees. And you will confirm what the research shows — the more women in executive positions, the higher an organization’s ROI.

Our proprietary methodology was specially designed to amplify your own Diversity and Inclusion goals. We have successfully implemented this methodology at Novartis, Microsoft, Walmart, Honeywell, Sanofi and many other companies.

You can enjoy the same outstanding results.

If you are interested in improving productivity and reducing turnover with better employee engagement and satisfaction our programs can help.

We offer high performance career and leadership development programs that combine our proven RSM proprietary methodology and cultural know-how.

Designed to support women’s career success via self-motivation and mutual empowerment, our programs amplify the reach of your own company’s diversity and inclusion goals by eliciting unprecedented engagement.

Walk the Talk: Allyship Circles

Practicing allyship is helping organizations attain more inclusive cultures. But the best way for this approach to work is when it becomes part of the DNA of the organization, it’s practiced consistently and relentlessly by the leadership and members of the majority group. For this to take place, leaders not only need to believe that inclusion benefits everyone (and the company’s bottom line,) but they must also:

  • Understand that allyship is an ongoing process
  • Understand that it’s okay to make mistakes
  • Accept their own responsibility in learning
  • Master the specific tools to be effective allies
  • Role model what true allyship looks like on an everyday basis
