Every Level Leadership
Thriving organizations rely on having inclusive workplaces and leaders present at every level.
Every Level Leadership’s work happens at the intersection of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) and workplace culture change. Every Level Leadership breaks down structural barriers that BIPOC — particularly Black women — continue to face at work.
They work closely with organizations to help embed the principles of DEI and anti-racism throughout the organization and believe success is achieved when the organization’s DEI commitments align with its actions. ELL helps make that alignment happen.
In 2020, Every Level Leadership began an initiative called Black Women Thriving, which deepens its work in DEI and provides an intersectional look at the processes and structures that need to change to support Black women’s satisfaction and wellbeing in their careers.
