"Our company had an excellent and highly beneficial experience working with Ethos Equity Consulting. With the help of Ethos, we’ve been able to define our DEI “north star” and create the roadmap that points us toward it. The Institutional Equity Audit and the qualitative data that the Ethos team collected through their survey and 1:1 interviews uncovered a number of opportunities for improvement and elicited valuable employee insights and perspectives. With that foundation of valuable data, we were able to work with Brittani to identify a number of strategic initiatives that will address several existing shortcomings and also ensure we remain aware and intentional as we move forward. The Values Statement we created together is the perfect fusion of our company’s core values, our “why” statement, and the fundamental DEI principles that will guide our decision-making and our focus as we strive to be the most inclusive company we can be. Brittani is a consummate professional and an expert on the subject of equity, and her approach to advising and educating ensures that conversations on complex topics are productive and result in positive outcomes. We know that DEI is an ongoing journey and we are very grateful for the boost we got from our engagement with Ethos Equity. We would highly recommend Ethos Equity to any company that wants to ensure they are doing their best when it comes to DEI!"

"Brittani's expertise and guidance through the whole evaluation and strategic recommendation process was beyond our expectations. Brittani jumped right in collaborating with our all-volunteer, employee-led DEI team. She communicates effectively with everyone from employees to HR to c-suite leadership. We appreciate her ability to be direct and straightforward while also being empathetic and encouraging. The level of depth during the audit and interviews critically explored all levels of our organization, structures, processes, and culture—both confirming our assumptions, as well as uncovering entirely new opportunities and the strategic actions necessary to guide our company through an evolution of intentional inclusivity and equity. Having the strategic recommendations tailored to us and our industry helped contextualize where we were and how to move forward. The value that we've already seen from this engagement with Ethos Equity has been amazing. Because of Brittani's work, we are confident that we can continue to make meaningful, impactful strides in our DEI journey.

Founder + Strategic Director
I believe every individual should feel valued and dignified. Since you made your way here I’m assuming we share that principle. Or maybe you’re interested in learning about the intersectionality of diversity, equity and inclusion. Either way, I’m happy you stopped by!
I’ve known from an early age that my professional fulfillment was contingent upon advocating for equitable social impact. Although “equity” wasn’t the jargon it is today, I leveraged my background in marketing, communication and engagement to advance humanistic causes. Over the course of my career I’ve been able to support missions that initially made me feel warm and fuzzy, but that faded fast when my ideas and perspectives were ignored and silenced. On more than one occasion I was forced to battle my own marginalization within the workplace.
After exchanging stories with other womxn and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) it became obvious that my experiences, although personal, were not uncommon in work and learning environments. I was not alone feeling isolated and devalued. That’s why, in an effort to reclaim my value and help catalyze equitable environments, I founded Ethos Equity Consulting LLC. Clients benefit from my formal education, lived experiences, as well as my work strategizing and implementing inclusive community engagement.
No matter the starting point I meet individuals and groups where they are, offering eye-opening opportunities for truth and reconciliation. The learning process is ongoing, but together we push past comfort zones to diminish fear and welcome the capacity to sustain transformative change. Unprecedented growth is attainable with Ethos Equity. Join us on your journey, today.
