COMPANIES that EMBRACE DEI PRACTICES ARE:
Many companies fail to achieve DEI results due to:
- Lack of clarity and alignment. DEI means something different for everyone and there is no shared understanding of why it matters, what success looks like or what actions to take.
- Feeling anxious and overwhelmed. DEI is perceived to be complex and daunting and the fear of making a mistake leads to inaction.
- Focus only on representation. Strategies over-index on recruiting underrepresented individuals and under-index on building a culture of belonging that values and respects the diversity inherent in everyone.
- Lack of daily relevance. DEI is associated with extracurricular activities. Leaders do not embrace DEI as core leadership competencies and employees struggle to apply DEI training in their day to day to make them more effective in their roles.

Not only did she share some innovative and powerful insights with these small business owners, but she was also able to do it in a way that inspired and instantly connected with them so that they felt motivated to take action."

Beth delivered a keynote at the Management Summit that we host each year for our business partners. Beth’s frameworks and presentation style makes the idea of creating a culture of belonging one that’s easy to adopt by providing actionable suggestions that can be implemented immediately. We provided all attendees with a copy of the 50 Everyday Acts of Inclusion flipbook, and everyone loved it! Such a handy resource for simple ways to be more inclusive in our everyday lives. Beth is awesome and we’ll definitely hire her again!
Thank you so very much for sharing your insights and perspectives with us today; I’ve already heard some incredibly positive feedback with a common theme of “When can we have Beth back?”. You were able to position your message in a way that every single person in our audience could relate to and for that, I thank you. I also very much appreciated the easy action steps that you shared that each and everyone of us can put into practice immediately; it will be those small things that will no doubt make a huge difference, at work and in life!
Beth is THE expert on leadership, culture, and business. I was lucky enough to work with her on a recent career development workshop for our company, which participants afterwards called “the best” they had every attended. Beth’s prior experience in consulting, at a Fortune 100 company and at major non-profits make her uniquely qualified to provide advice, insights and direction to any organization that wants to improve its culture, leadership capabilities or diversity, equity and inclusion. She is amazing to work with and someone from whom I am always learning. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Beth Ridley was absolutely incredible in delivering the best DEI session I have encountered. Her openness, honesty, and intentionality around the topic made it easy to engage and learn. Even though the session was on DEI, Beth made sure the focus was on her audience, as she took time to interact and respond to any questions or thoughts brought forward. I am excited that we get to listen to her again soon!
