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.
