Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative

DEI Cultural & Organizational Consulting

Creating a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is beneficial to any organization’s success. Providing a supportive environment will improve employee morale, working relationships, and retention rates. Organizations may not know how to build a culture of DEI, or have attempted to but feel they are not succeeding at it.

We will lead your organization through a path of discovery and recognition to develop actionable strategies that engage your workforce and enhance the culture of racial inclusion.

Key initiatives :

  • Capture employees’ feelings toward DEI
  • Develop near and long-term strategies to bring more diversity into leadership positions
  • Outlining measurable goals
  • Develop metrics to measure improvement over time
  • Development of a mission, commitment, and charter statement
  • Exploring personal experiences and working through solutions
  • Review ways that your organization can become a leader in DEI
  • Review stratigies on addressing sensative issues among peer workers
  • Team understanding of implicit and explicit bias

Anne’s unique set of skills and experience offer keen insights for those considering joining a nonprofit board. As the Chief Executive Officer (1994-2021) of a leading agency providing services for people with intellectual disabilities, over the years, she collaborated with scores of business and community leaders who served on the Board of Directors. While she is well-versed in the fiduciary and legal implications of Board service, Anne realizes that a passion for helping others is what truly inspires people to devote their time and talent to accomplish great things.

Serving as a State Representative on the CT Legislature for six years, as well as ongoing public service in her local community as an elected City Councilwoman, has afforded Anne with a well-rounded perspective on the interface between government and the private sector. She fully understands the importance of working in partnership for the greater good. Anne has served in various capacities on multiple boards and committees, and as a member of the Executive Board of the CT Nonprofit Alliance, she helped define and represent the challenges faced by nonprofits statewide. Approachable, insightful, and kind, Anne is a well-respected leader with incredible heart, compassion, and wisdom.

“There are a lot of publications purporting to tell you how to run your nonprofit, but The TANGO Nonprofit Method is the best resource we’ve seen. If you want to really know all the legal and operational steps to take to make your nonprofit successful, this book should be in your library.”

John Griswold

“The TANGO Nonprofit Method is a beautiful balancing act.  Comprehensive and accessible.  Educational and practical. Whether you are a seasoned professional advisor or just starting your first term as a nonprofit director, this work will quickly become your “go to” resource, a guide that will cultivate a deep and rewarding understanding of the nonprofit sector.”

Edward B. Spinella

“This book is an invaluable resource for officers, directors and senior leaders of nonprofit organizations of all sizes and types. Written in plain English, the book educates the reader about the business of nonprofits — the legal structures, the financial structures and governance — and provides examples and case studies that put the material in context. A must-read for anyone new serving on a nonprofit board”.

It will guide nonprofits through best practices for your boards of directors, management teams, employees, clients and overall company mission!

“The TANGO Nonprofit Method is a necessary resource for all existing or newly formed nonprofit organizations. An essential tool for both staff and board members that is easy to read and reference. I would recommend to all nonprofit executive directors to further enhance their board education efforts as it can be easily sectioned and included as a regular meeting agenda item.”
