It’s hard, isn’t it?
Challenging our perceptions, reframing our thoughts, acknowledging our biases, and making ourselves vulnerable to one another.
We, the Mollard Consulting team, are doing this work in partnership with others. Not just because we are consultants and we want to offer the best counsel to our clients, but because we are human.
We want to learn, grow, and understand more every day — individually, and as a company that is comprised of six white women ages 24 to 48.
We are inspired by many in this effort, including:
Thought leaders at BoardSource, who are driving sector change and whose resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion are the basis of our bibliographies.
Our clients, including Angel Harris, Executive Director of Dress for Success Columbus, whose passion for lifting women out of poverty is beyond compare; Dawn Tyler Lee, Interim Executive Director at CelebrateOne and Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Andy Ginther, who is highly effective at elevating all voices; and Gina Ginn, CEO of Columbus Early Learning Centers, whose tireless efforts teach us that increased access to early learning is also about reducing racial inequity.
And so, we do the hard work because this work matters. The more we expand our understanding and our circle, the more authentic we can be to our clients and to each other.
