The Politics of D&I

Mike* is a consultant who specializes in the areas of diversity, inclusion and talent management. He is white, straight and in his late 40s. Consulting in this area is a second career for him, and he was nervous about making the transition to this line of work because he worried that his race, gender and/or sexual orientation would make him less likely to garner credibility and success in the field of diversity and inclusion. They didn’t.

Mike is now a successful consultant and speaker. He works with organizations on diversity and inclusion in hiring, mentoring, leadership development and other areas, and he receives consistently great feedback on his work, insights and passionate commitment to make workplaces more diverse and inclusive.

Think Smarter. Lead Better.

  • Arin is one of the premiere experts in the field of diversity consulting and career consulting for diverse attorneys. Not only have I retained Arin to provide workshops at my law firm, but I have seen her speak on a number of occasions. She is focused, creative, practical and her depth of knowledge of the legal arena and law firms is impressive. She also is a joy to work with. I highly recommend her and intend to use her again.

  • When we're talking about diversity, it's not a box to check. It is a reality that should be deeply felt and held and valued by all of us.

  • Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in.

  • There never were in the world two opinions alike, no more than two hairs or two grains; the most universal quality is diversity.

    Michel de Montaigne
  • Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.
