D&I Professionals & Client Testimonials
I knew what to expect when I received the Organization Report for my client and when I received my Individual Report, because I had seen samples. What I was blown away by was the quality of the training kit that Spectra Diversity provided to me to use when facilitating a session. It was innovative, fresh and had new activities that I had never seen before. It was absolutely everything I needed. Kudos to Spectra Diversity!
~ LaJuana Warren, Tapestry Solutions for Inclusion
In a homogeneous county and seemingly homogeneous workforce, we deepened and broadened the definition of diversity by including all leadership in the organizational results. Our facilitated training on diversity and inclusion piqued interest enough that they now want to create a D&I Council and explore this internally and start an effort…to better serve the community.

Assessment is a key aspect of designing and implementing a relevant D&I strategy as it establishes a baseline and gives valuable information for setting priorities. An excellent new tool, the Spectra Assessment, a user-friendly online instrument, provides the organization with critical data and actionable feedback. Based on a five-step developmental model and statistically validated, the instrument’s strength is that it goes beyond measuring individual behaviors and attitudes and assesses management and organizational practices and policies. This tool would be a great help to any organization attempting to leverage diversity and build a culture of inclusion.

The [organization] should continue to set and meet goals to maintain diversity and inclusion.
