In 2016, our CEO & Founder was sitting in an all-staff meeting reviewing our programmatic recruitment and retention numbers of our program participants. Cheryl recalls how her colleagues celebrated the increase in diverse identities within their program. In the next slide of the presentation, there was simultaneously a substantial increase in the turnover rate of the participants, in particular the Black males in our program—70%.
“I won’t ever forget that number because I was the lead that redeveloped our assessment in order to make our recruitment process more inclusive, which means I was also the person who overlooked factors that contributed to our turnover rate within our company culture. You see I was so focused on recruitment, that I made the same mistake many companies are making today that are doing inclusion work, they are not prioritizing building an inclusive culture.”
- Cheryl Ingram, CEO & Founder
