We look forward to thriving with you in 2022 and can't wait to see how many organizations choose seeking DEI expertise > DIY'ing your DEI.
I Follow the Leader is a leadership consulting firm specializing in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Strategy, Initiatives, and Education. Launched in 2016 to heighten awareness and readiness of DEI initiatives within companies, I Follow the Leader partners with organizations to move them along the diversity continuum, improve their overall culture and increase profitability, creativity and innovation.
Thank you to all of the IFL Leaders and Coordinators who partnered with I Follow the Leader this year to help leaders and organizations thrive and reach their highest potential!
If you haven't noticed yet from being a client, partner, supporter, subscriber, or all of the above, our firm is VERY different from most Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) firms in the market today. Relationship building and progress over the long-term matter most to our team...
Our clients desire to take strategic, measurable, and sustainable DEI Action. Partnership with our firm allows organizations to couple the expertise of their team with our team's vast DEI knowledge and experience.
Thank you to all of our 2021 partners! We are looking forward to the continued partnership.
In 2021 I Follow the Leader partnered with 18 organizations across various sectors, including nonprofits (50%), corporations (31%), and member associations (19%).

Whatever you do, please Don't DIY Your DEI! The progress your organization can make during a long-term strategic partnership is UNMATCHED! Therefore, the majority of the firm's capacity is reserved for our strategic partnership clients.
I Follow the Leader’s strategy engagements are for organizations ready for an ALL-IN commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. We serve as your Chief Diversity Officer, helping you establish and maintain a measurable DEI strategy.
Our Comprehensive Roadmap clients receive a full cultural audit, 1-year DEI action plan with measurements, 3 strategy sessions, and more. Click here for more details.
At I Follow the Leader, we value authentic, courageous, and synergetic partnerships.

If you haven't noticed yet from being a client, partner, supporter, subscriber, or all of the above, our firm is VERY different from most Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) firms in the market today. Relationship building and progress over the long-term matter most to our team.
Our goal is not to say we partnered with hundreds of clients. Our goal is to say that we pushed the pace of progress and helped our clients take strategic, measurable, and sustainable action. Because of that, we only take on a limited number of strategic partnerships simultaneously and annually. We also spend the majority of time on strategic work > discussions and training, which is purposeful. While discussions and training are a critical part of a successful DEI strategy, for so many organizations, it is the only DEI activity they are willing to commit to. Our P.A.C.E. Progress Framework has educating stakeholders listed as one critical element out of twelve - that's only 8.33% of the solution.
I love the first heading for the stats shared above- relationship building. It reinforces what is important to us and that is building long-term relationships with you, your organization, and your community, so we can get closer to fulfilling our vision of ensuring every member of the global workforce feels a sense of belonging and has equal opportunity to lead, thrive, and reach their highest potential.
We can't wait to continue the work we're doing with our current strategic partners (Thank you for choosing IFL as your partner!) and look forward to forming more authentic, courageous, and synergetic partnerships in 2022.
I have to give a HUGE shoutout to our spectacular team! We could not fulfill our mission, partner with employees across the World, work towards our vision, and live out our values without their dedication to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Our team also continues to grow and doubled in the last year! We can't wait to officially introduce you to our new Leaders in January.
