"Thank you so much for the services that you provide. These webinars and member meetings have been invaluable to keep abreast of DEI issues and challenges, and to have a sense of a support network of 'like minded' people to be connected with on this journey, especially this year.  I am so grateful for you. I am willing to support your efforts with my skills and talents in any way that I can.  Feel free to engage me."

How We Serve

"I am deeply grateful to be a mentee in the IAC mentoring initiative - the thorough matching process has connected me with an amazing mentor who is supportive and encouraging, yet not afraid to challenge and push me to dream bigger and step out of my comfort zone. Our monthly conversations have become treasured time and space that allow me to reflect, connect, and learn with and from my mentor. My mentor has helped me identify my personal barriers to growth and challenges I am facing in my professional and personal development, encouraging me to become more confident, claim my space, and set my boundaries.​

Our Founders

“IAC's mentorship program has been one of the most helpful and enriching development experiences in my career. As a mentee I felt heard, supported and encouraged and my confidence as a DEI practitioner grew. As a mentor I am still learning and growing as I see the practice of DEI through the eyes of the mentees and add their views and perspectives to my own mind frame.”
