Home > Expertise

Our consultants bring a mix of expertise that is critical to tackling wicked problems. Our success is driven by our ability to identify and assess challenges seen and unseen, think creatively about solutions, leverage the full diversity of our team, and use technology to stay efficient. Whether working with non-profit, government, healthcare, academic, or industry partners, our team is committed to delivering exceptional quality and value to all our clients. We invite you to explore each of our core areas of expertise below.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Most companies tout having DE&I initiatives. However, DE&I is more than having anti-discrimination training and policy. Exceptional companies see diversity in all its forms as part of their competitive advantage. They also work to incorporate it at every level of the business, positively impacting employees, vendors, customers, and other partners.

Our team has expertise in developing agency and state supplier diversity policy; EEO/diversity plans and policy; and diversity, equity, and inclusion training for state and federal partners. Our consultants can evaluate your organization’s existing diversity programming and training, identify opportunities to expand training offerings, recommend policy and practice changes, and provide support to senior leaders. Let us help you make your company an exceptional employer and partner!

Data Analytics

Over the next 20 years, it is anticipated that the convergence of technologies, such as artificial intelligence, high speed communications and biotechnology and the increasing use of big data will not only drive technological and business advancements but improve our understanding of the social and behavioral sciences as well. Therefore, organizations must be able to unpack and understand the data they collect from consumers, employees, vendors, students, patients, and others and use it to achieve a competitive advantage.


Our team of data scientists have extensive expertise in machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, predictive analytics, conversational AI, and genomic research. Not only do they bring this technical expertise to their work, but they are also able to help companies address the bias in data-driven decision making that prevents them from connecting fully with various demographics. Additionally, this team offers training in data analytics, to include training to improve the diversity of the data science workforce.
