Thank you and Big Changes at InclusionVentures

After six years of impact, InclusionVentures brought our current engagements to a close in August 2020 and we are no longer accepting new clients. We are grateful for your work and commitment to advancing
DEI and antiracism. Read more about these changes. We do continue to refer business, mostly to Black- and Brown-owned businesses. If you are looking for a preferred vendor to support you on inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-racism, please let us know specifically what you are seeking and we will send you our highest recommendations.


We believe in the potential of people, organizations, and societies. We work with you to move from “checking the box” to creating organizational culture change that creates results.


Through strategic consulting, expert facilitation, interactive workshops and trainings, and inspiring keynotes, we create transformational experiences, skill-building, and knowledge transfer that lead to innovative practices, better decision-making, optimized performance, and, dare we hope, a better world.

This was the best workshop on identity, race, and culture that I have ever attended. It was engaging, accurate, forward-thinking, and fun. I have already applied what I learned! I am a mid-career Black woman. This training is making me a better person, boss, colleague, and community member.


"I am able to stay at my job because of the work you are doing with us."

This day has built trust and insight among my colleagues that I feel would take a decade of working together in normal day to day circumstances.

C-SUITE EXECUTIVE The James Irvine Foundation

I can’t remember a time when I came away from a day session about any topic where I have so many tools that I can use in my work in so many ways.

I thought I was a facilitator. Then I saw you in action, and realized, ‘Wow, Amy is a master facilitator.’ Thank you for modeling by example and creating the perfect amount of depth given our group and our time.

TAMIR NOVOTNY Executive Director   Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy

The skills, perspectives, and experiences Amy provides are exactly what we are looking for our employees to gain. The ability to work in diverse teams to solve problems is critical.

ELANA WEINSTEIN Chief Diversity Officer   Bloomberg LP

Amy is hands-down the best facilitator and adviser that I have had the privilege to work with.... Amy advised us through workshop ideation, design, and delivery, infusing wisdom from her years of experience in diversity, inclusion, and strategy. She helped us learn tried and true facilitation strategies and to think through the best way to deploy new facilitation tactics....Workshop attendees expressed that Amy was "a brilliant speaker and facilitator" and "a breath of fresh air." Her expert perspective is only surpassed by her warm spirit and energetic presence. Any organization or individual would be lucky to work with Amy - she truly knows how to create the space for transformative and impactful dialogue.
