Purpose-Driven Organizations We Work With

Our Approach Has Made a Difference For

DEI is NOT just for minorities

We help organizations reframe Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to go beyond HR, anti-racism, and the old version of “diversity” in the workplace.

DEI is more than "checking the box" and getting back to business.

It's about dramatically shifting the way we experience one another as human beings, which contributes to a safer, more trusting work environment that fosters collaboration, innovation, and growth.

DEI is a solution framework for mistrust in your company culture

Mistrust is the most expensive and pervasive problem contributing to division, avoidance, and organizational disparities, which show up as familiar symptoms such as:

Poor Performance & High Turnover

Dreading Work & Calling in Sick

Harassment & Discrimination

Which could be costing you up to 34% of a disengaged employee's annual salary, according to Gallop.

In a world where, “people ONLY do business with people they know, like, and trust,”

Employees ONLY do their best work for leaders they know, like, and trust.

- Kemy Joseph

That's why delegating DEI will only get you so far...

DEI is a mindset you adopt on the path toward becoming an Equitable Leader who models a Culture of Equity in your organization.

It's no longer enough to cram minority candidates into your existing business with hiring.

For a DEI initiative to be truly effective, it must involve everyone, including you as the leader.

DEI Equitable Leadership High Five

When you embed DEI into your leadership habits and the fabric of your company culture,

You set the example for authentic behavior change in your teams who systematically carry out the vision of DEI in your organization you create together.

So what does the journey of equitable leadership – and building an equitable company – look like?

Leaders lead where they have influence.

it’s not fair to ask you to solve all of the world’s problems.

However, you can champion the advancement of career equity - an equitable journey on the career paths of all employees.

An increase in one form of equity increases equity everywhere else.

Get more of your team excited and on-board with DEI

What Our Clients Are Saying

"What I got excited about going deeper into the process with Kemy is that I could start to formalize some of the practices and goals that I have as a founder, so I can build an organization that is healthy, thriving, and able to create good diverse business directions that will ultimately impact our whole trajectory as a company."

Nanea Reeves - CEO,TRIPP

"This conversation that Kemy facilitated really did get people in our community to think about a topic - prejudice - that they’ve thought about before, in a different way, brought it into a space that felt actionable within the work that we’re currently doing as investors..."

Lisa Sulenes - Head of Operations at AtlasQ, Alpha Bridge Ventures

"These are exactly the conversations we need to be having in the workplace. It’s the responsibility of those of us leaders in the corporate workplace to provide opportunities for everyone to have these conversations and feel safe without feeling attacked. I now have the tools to allow me to do that in a really effective way."

Marcelo Gadia - CPA & Manager of Tax Services at Berkowitz Pollack Brant Advisors

"It is a safe space for you to share, a safe space for you to ask questions that you probably normally wouldn’t ask, and to get answers for you to be able to move forward inside of this conversation.

This type of work is necessary and even if it’s happening for one person or if it’s happening for 35 people, the difference you can make by having one conversation that’s this difficult to have, can literally change the world. That’s my big takeaway."

Lamarr Womble - Motivational Speaker

"After the event, I had folks in my community want to speak to me intimately about what they learned in the session and what came up afterwards. People in my team spoke up about things we had never talked about. This event meant deeper human connection for us, our clients, and all of our community members.

This is not just a one-time, exciting, feel-good event. This is an exploration you’ll want to continue."

Noel Pacarro Brown - First Vice President + Investing with Impact Director, Morgan Stanley

"I was struggling with how to be engaged in the conversation around implicit bias, prejudice, and privilege in a way that would support positive movement forward for people in our organization.

The F.E.A.R.S. Advantage team walks you through it openly, respectfully, and with gentleness so the conversation becomes accessible and relevant for your organization."

Julie Christenson - Program Operations Coordinator, White Bird Medical
