“Rodney and his team have a comprehensive approach to DE and I. This is not a one-course, one-topic program. Instead it’s an end to end framework that takes into consideration every aspect of a business and its touchpoints, ensuring those that leverage it achieve meaningful long-term impact for all stakeholders. Rodney’s incredible drive, passion and wisdom are injected throughout, making DEIS something all companies should explore.”

— Jocelyn Mangan (CEO and Founder, Him For Her)

Diversity, equity and inclusion is quickly evolving; it requires greater rigor in order for this work to be fully codified particularly in the tech ecosystem. Rodney and his team have created a holistic approach that truly encompasses DEI that both equips and empowers participants. The DEIS is a next level program that touches on all facets of the organizational and employee life cycles that truly operationalize efforts and create greater DEI efficacy.

— Bernard C. Coleman III (Chief Diversity & Engagement Officer, Gusto)

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has a large impact on a company’s bottom-line. The increased awareness of its importance as a key business metric, validates that “doing it right” is integralI. I had the pleasure of sitting on the OHUB diversity, equity and inclusion panel in the fall.  This resource that Rodney and his team are creating is invaluable.

— Roxane R. Johnson (Vice President, Human Resources & DEI, CareSet Systems, Inc.)

Rodney was one of the dozen Black colleagues I reached out to after George Floyd was murdered. I asked them each the question, “What are two things you are doing to eliminate racism that I can support you with time, network, and money?”  Since then, Rodney and I have embarked on several projects together. The DEIS Membership which will include access to our annual DEIS Practicum is one of them. I encourage founders, CEO’s, investors and beyond to join this racial equity revolution.

— Brad Feld (Cofounder, Foundry, Techstars & Anchor Point Foundation)
