One that is made up of both big-picture STRATEGIC approaches and attention to nuanced details.

Ensuring that often overlooked D&I issues such as regional diversity, social mobility and issues impacting  "first gen" professionals are fully addressed.

Focusing on the unique D&I challenges facing more senior professionals as they advance into and through leadership.

Focusing on skill-building, in areas including internal/external network development and branding, to build the relationship capital necessary to accelerate career advancement.
