Our consulting services include expert witness work for some of the country's top law firms. We investigate employee discrimination complaints and recommend remedies where appropriate. We develop and explain affirmative action programs for clients across the country. We assist them in many cases with implementation training for executives and managers. We also provide on-site consulting support for Department of Labor compliance reviews of affirmative action programs. One-on-one executive and employee coaching is another of our specialties. Sexual harassment prevention is often the subject.

We would be pleased to serve you by helping you reach your objectives.
