Diversity Equity and Inclusion work can feel overwhelming, but at Johnson Squared Consulting, we work to make it easy. I am the Co-Founder and Learning and Development Partner with Johnson Squared, and we take an inclusion-first approach to our work and customize all of our services to avoid a "check the box" feeling that employees can spot a mile away.

We meet our clients where they are. Whether they have a DEI director or committee that needs support on their rollout with programs, if they need someone to design surveys to see how employees feel about equity and inclusion, or if they need customized workshops for their leadership team or their entire staff. Regardless of the need, we work to identify the best ways to support the company's DEI initiatives and make those goals a reality.

Along with being a leader in the DEI space, I also run a career service company, My Interview Buddy that helps people prepare for interviews, and helps businesses create dynamic LinkedIn profiles for their sales teams.

When I'm not working, you can find me enjoying an action movie, learning the ukulele and building lego masterpieces with my 1st grader.

Work Experience
Jul 2020 - Current date

Johnson Squared was dreamt up by two sisters, Jade and Noelle Johnson. Both women felt the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion space could benefit from straighter-talk, more targeted solutions, and deeper-dives into cultural nuances. They created Johnson Squared for companies and professionals that are serious about real change. The ideal Johnson Squared partner understands that equitable ecosystems are groomed and cultivated into being through sound strategy – not one-size fits all workshops. While needs may differ, this firm wants the same bottom line as all of its valued clients: a more equitable and profitable tomorrow – together.

Our services include:
ERG and DEI Committee Support
DEI Consultation
Internal and External Communication Support
Websites audits and more
