Icarus Consulting proudly considers itself a team of transformers.  We like taking on challenges and solving problems — and we’re good at it. We help our clients ‘defy gravity’. We talk to people and get the data and feedback that matter. We help you to understand what these insights mean for your company or community and to develop a plan, resulting in transformational change that is sustainable.

Our small team of consultants intentionally includes not only former chief diversity officer, but researchers and strategists. We boast nearly five decades of total; experience in utility, energy, transportation, higher education, manufacturing, healthcare, and government work. For our clients we’ve delivered culture scans,  BRG/ERG positioning, D&I scorecards, talent visioning, supplier diversity outreach, D&I communications, and D&I training. And we’re always eager to learn more to get the job done for our clients, tailoring a project to meet your needs.

If you have a big problem — or a big dream — chances are our team of versatile and agile experts can help. Check out what we accomplished while working hand in hand with organizations at the national, regional, and local levels in the case studies below.
