I help people engage in strategic planning for inclusion, equity and diversity to bridge differences and connect more meaningfully. I thrive on creating connections and developing a sense of belonging for all in the workplace.
At the core, I'm passionate about people.
I created a tool tied to a set of measurable results to advance companies past the rhetoric into concrete action. Action towards building cultures of just and fair inclusion in order to attract and retain top talent!
Here’s a model of what it might look like if an organization excelled in this area:
Through my work in talent acquisition and retention, I've shaped diversity and inclusion initiatives for top Northwest organizations such as Microsoft, Starbucks, Vulcan, Inc., and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. After many years of helping companies and professionals across broad industries enact lasting change, I established Susan Long-Walsh and Associates, a Seattle-based consultancy that connects businesses to the resources, talent, and tools toward building a great workplace culture.
