SAY THEIR COMPANY HAS A DIVERSITY PROGRAM IN PLACE
Connecting Business Outcomes with Lasting Cultural Change
At OUTLAST, we treat diversity as a business objective. Our mission is to help clients create enduring business impact while working to eliminate corporate America’s advancement and retention gaps for underrepresented talent. With an innovative, metric-driven approach to consulting, clients can build diverse talent within their organization, help employees harness their unique strengths, and maximize company performance and growth.
EMPLOYEES HAVE PERSONALLY BENEFITED FROM IT
[My coach] served as a great mentor when I started a new position in management. His experience working with high-level management teams, coupled with his calm demeanor and open-book personality, gave me a trusted resource to go to with any & all questions. Working with [my coach] set me up for long-term success in my management role, which I still reap the benefits of, even today.
“[My coach] provides firm feedback in a caring and objective way. He is great at pushing me just enough beyond my comfort zone to continually encourage me to experiment and grow. After a week, I was starting to notice material changes. I am surprised at the amazing personal progress I’ve made in the short amount of time that I’ve worked with him.”
“[My coach] was really great at helping me sort out my goals and getting me focused on what I want to do and where I want to go. I found I was able to make some significant changes very quickly… Thanks a million.”
This professional development program is based on individualized coaching for people of color, by people of color. With a focus on the uniques challenges faced by people of color in a corporate setting, it encourages advancement and growth for diverse talent.
Many Fortune 1000 companies have made public commitments to increase diversity in the workplace without a firm business objective or sustainable action plan. As part of our diversity consulting framework, we implement initiatives such as professional development programs that lead to advancement and retention, which can be linked to operational metrics to measure growth and achieve enduring results.
We guide clients toward their supplier diversity goals and ensure they are moving forward effectively. Whether the objective is to achieve increased diverse supplier spending or meet targets for representation at various levels, the focus is on building suppliers’ capability through quantifiable actions that can be measured against a company’s internal baseline to support specified goals and define the intent behind them.
Real-Time, Personalized Support from Coaches with First-Hand Experience
As a minority-owned business, we speak to the underlying bias found in workplaces for people of color. We weave our collective experiences as business leaders into our diversity consulting with a metrics-based approach to leverage objectives and key results within an organization.
Through professional development programs and personalized employee diversity strategies, we define measurable goals that transform the operational structure, resulting in a more inclusive and equitable workplace culture.
