We build innovative and sustainable growth in the workplace. 

Workplaces are changing and so if the workforce. All industries are seeing significant transformations driven by technological advancements, globalization, and shifting societal expectations. As organizations become more diverse, dynamic, and interconnected, the need for leadership development, communication refinement, and culture development has never been more critical.

  • Effective leadership is essential to navigate complex challenges, inspire innovation, and guide teams through change.
  • Communication skills, both interpersonal and digital, are paramount in fostering collaboration, understanding, and a cohesive work environment.
  • Culture play a crucial role in attracting and retaining talent, a strategic focus on culture development ensures that organizations foster inclusivity, diversity, and a shared sense of purpose.

Recognizing and adapting to these changes helps organizations to thrive.

What is happening?

With a changing workforce, workplaces must respond to a variety of existing and new issues. Poor employee morale and engagement, high turnover, difficulty attracting talent, resistance to change, reduced productivity, and  legal or ethical incidents has led urgency for action. Workplaces must give attention to the needs of all stakeholders and move forward with a comprehensive understanding of need, demands, and potential outcomes of decisions.

"Janelle Abela and Diverse Solutions Strategy Firm were engaged to create a robust assessment through qualitative and quantitative assessment of stakeholder experience, and thorough review of procedures, policies, programming, and front-facing digital/physical materials. Using the above, Diverse Solutions built a strategic plan that supports transformative practice that responds to Libro’s commitment to change. In our opinion, Diverse Solutions used their team’s intersectional, academic, and professional experiences to help Libro respond to the DE&I issues of today and tomorrow."

Brian Aalbers, Executive Vice President, People & Culture, Libro Credit Union

"Diverse Solutions has consistently demonstrated a commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction. Their approach to program development and corporate training is marked by a high level of professionalism, attention to detail, and a strong focus on meeting and exceeding client expectations. One of their key strengths lies in their ability to tailor training to the audience, be relatable and relevant, and keep people invested in their learning.  Working with Diverse Solutions was truly full-service. It was clear to our project team that they were committed to delivering results that go above and beyond industry standards. In addition to their business acumen, Diverse Solutions has also demonstrated adaptability and resilience in navigating challenges faced throughout the development and deployment process. Their ability to identify opportunities for growth and improvement reflects a strategic mindset that is crucial in today's dynamic market."

Dorian Noble, Newcomer Connection Program Coordinator, Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership

"We chose Diverse Solutions due to Janelle Abela's background in education and how she was able to effectively communicate important and sensitive information and the wide variety of learning options. REEF was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Diverse Solutions. All of our expectations were met and exceeded. Diverse Solutions worked with us to creatively solve the challenges of our grant deliverables. We needed to provide IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility) training and bring together leaders of non-profits, museums, educational institutions, advisory boards, and government entities that spanned over 100 miles. Diverse Solutions was able to help our Florida Keys Community assess the needs and differences of our community. We wanted to ensure inclusion in hiring practices, volunteer programs, and advisory boards. Because of the customized program Diverse Solutions created, we were able to amplify IDEA throughout the Florida Keys. Participants reported increased knowledge of obstacles that some face and increased understanding of how to meet the needs of a diverse and inclusive workforce, just to name a few outcomes. One of our challenges of the grant is that we had asked for lofty goals and deliverables with a limited budget. Diverse Solutions provided a wealth of resources: workshop booklets, in-person presentation, in-depth lessons through the e-platform, Zoom meetings, formative assessment, and evaluation of the programs impact. Communication from Diverse Solutions is effective and immediate. Diverse Solutions made us feel like we were their only client. We are grateful for our continued relationship with Diverse Solutions and we look forward to working with them in the future."
