Through this recognition, we’re delighted to say our employees appreciate our continued and ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
To further improve upon diversity and inclusion efforts in 2021, Consilio created the “Consilio Leadership Academy,” designed to foster the development of a diverse group of high-potential talent and prepare them for leadership roles in the company. This is accomplished through individual and group coaching, training, and strategic project work. The company also launched the “Pride@Consilio” campaign to help maintain a safe and welcoming environment for LGBTQIA+ employees.
