Lisa is a versatile diversity consultant with broad expertise ranging from leading comprehensive assessment and strategy development engagements to facilitating diversity councils and launching business resource groups to designing and delivering executive education on supporting work-life effectiveness and flexibility.

Lisa is a thought leader bringing a fresh perspective (visit Lisa’s Book page) on the continuing evolution of gender roles in both the professional and personal spheres.
