The goal is to create long-lasting, sustainable change, which requires:

Making system-wide changes that include everyone from the CEO to the newest team member.


Empowering your team with the skills to be more inclusive and manage unconscious bias in the workplace.

While the best, most enduring cultural change is supported by all four approaches—Organizational Assessment, Coaching and Consulting, Training and Education, and Inclusion CoachesTM—we recognize that not every organization is able to make that level of commitment. Pope will customize a plan to maximize the impact of your DEI program.

Client Testimonial

I would highly recommend the “Inclusive Workplace Training” online course.  All of our employees completed DEI training with Pope Consulting.  The training helped employees become more aware of the impact of unconscious bias and other barriers to inclusion, and more importantly, provided tools to positively impact behaviors – in the course evaluation, nearly 90% Strongly Agreed or Agreed that they would be able to apply what they learned from the Inclusive Workplace online course.   This engaging course has been an important element of our overall DEI strategy to strengthen our workplace culture and empower our people in pursuit of our mission.

Amy Russell, Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
GTI Energy

The Inclusive Workplace training created a shared understanding of what diversity and inclusion means and looks like—a foundation from which we can all grow. Most importantly, participants left with concrete, practical steps to create and sustain an inclusive workplace through their everyday actions.

SRC, Inc.

My name is Chris Thomas and I have been a domestic and international general manager for several fortune 100 companies like P&G and Frito Lay. A couple decades ago, I had the opportunity to work closely with Pope Consulting to deliver diversity and inclusion training to all P&G managers and leaders in the Sales Division.  It was tremendously well-received and something that has ‘stuck’ with me ever since.  Their new digital training course for individual contributors is equally impactful and extremely well done. Whenever I have the opportunity to recommend to companies who can help drive their DEI efforts to unprecedented levels, Pope Consulting is the first firm that comes to mind!

The Inclusive Workplace digital course was an engaging experience and provided practical tools for my colleagues and I to be more inclusive.
