Our Mission

To provide insights for successful and sustainable organizational diversity strategy.

Our aim is to guide organizations in

the advancement of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion mindset for successful and sustainable organizational strategy.

We are passionate in bringing racial equity, integrity, inclusivity, collectivism, and community to the forefront.

For AAG, being strategic also means being creative and inviting the voices of stakeholders across an organization and community partners.

Our work brings to attention the following four forces within organizations:


Change continues on global levels influencing all organizations with impact


Forces for deliberate organizational change will persist including racial inequities, COVID consequences, demographic shifts in the U.S., globalization, economic flux, climate change, world-wide migration, and technology advancements


All people and organizations are cultural entities and personal and organizational culture is fluid, not static; people can shape inclusive organization cultures.


Leader intentionality and engagement is necessary for prosperity at individual, organizational, and community levels
