Services for Diverse Businesses

Diverse

We have a strong commitment to supporting diverse businesses as we understand that fostering a diverse workforce is not only the right thing to do, but it is also good for business. We extend this knowledge and expertise to our clients as we are passionate about encouraging a range of experience and thought in the wider business communities.

We also contribute considerable time and energy to an array of non-profit and civic endeavors around diversity and inclusion, including holding leadership roles in organizations locally and nationally such as The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Ellevate Network,  Women Owned Law (WOL), The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF), The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), among others.

Diversity

We have experience assisting diverse businesses who are considering applying for certification as a woman, LGBT, minority or veteran-owned business.  Our firsthand experience with this rigorous process allows us to provide detailed and hands-on assistance during the entire application process.  For clients who are considered a small business, we also assist with applying for small diverse business status with various state and federal agencies.

Supplier Diversity

Many government agencies, non-profits, and public and privately-owned companies show their commitment to diversity through their supplier diversity initiatives, which allocate a certain amount of spend to diverse suppliers (women, LGBT, minority and veteran-owned businesses). Certified diverse businesses have the unique opportunity to pursue new business through these avenues. We are well versed on the ins and outs of supplier diversity programs and are able to assist certified diverse businesses in creating and updating their profiles on corporate supplier diversity portals as well as pursuing proposals (RFPs, RFIs, pitches, etc.) to optimize opportunities for business development.

Our sister company GriesingMazzeo Leadership also provides entrepreneurs and professionals with one-on-one and team coaching to help take charge of their careers and provides businesses with diversity and inclusion training to create diverse working environments that are inclusive for all.
