TDM really is a partner in this journey. They aren't just sending us a presentation with goals and saying ‘good luck.’ It is the ongoing partnership in executing this work, achieving the vision that we worked on collaboratively with them, and holding us accountable as well. It’s a true partnership. It's as if they are a part of our team.Rachel Kopp Vice President of People Operations, OrthoFi
We went through an extensive search in 2020, and we talked to several different consulting firms. The Diversity Movement came out head and shoulders above anyone else that we talked to because they took the time to really understand who we were as a company, where we were trying to go, and where we were on the journey. We really got the sense that the partners here at The Diversity Movement were going to take the time to walk this journey with us, which they’ve done.Danielle David Chief People Officer, CRB

Frequently Asked Questions
What is DEI and why is it important?
DEI refers to the policies and initiatives that support and promote the representation and participation of different groups of individuals regardless of age, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are different but interrelated concepts that function together to support fair and respectful work environments for all.
Diversity includes the range of similarities and differences each individual brings to the workplace, including language, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and socioeconomic status. It refers not just to physical and social diversity but also to diversity of thought.
Equity is defined as the fair treatment, access, and advancement of each person in an organization, including fairness in pay, fairness in daily work experiences, and opportunities for advancement.
Inclusion happens when all team members, regardless of their differences, can thrive and fully participate. Employee-centered, inclusive workplaces offer personalized policies and procedures that promote individual growth and professional success.
