There is nothing we are more proud of than our list of clients. Cook Ross is happy to have served leading names in virtually every enterprise category. If you can be “known by the company you keep,” then we are well-known indeed. All of our clients have something in common: An enthusiasm for excellence and a commitment to people.
Since LIFT embarked on a journey to more fully live out our values of diversity and inclusion, Cook Ross has played the role of our #1 trusted advisor, guide, and partner. Their skilled facilitators have helped LIFT open up tough conversations and engage stakeholders at all levels of the organization, from our front-line volunteers to our Board of Directors. Not only have they helped us have the right conversations, they have also guided us through the cultural and behavioral change required to create a more diverse and inclusive organization. Thanks to Cook Ross, we are a changed (and ever-evolving) organization; we could not be more appreciative of their counsel, guidance, and support.
The Association of American Medical Colleges has partnered with Cook Ross for three years on several programs including unconscious bias training – the first of its kind for academic medicine – and on the AAMC’s Healthcare Executive Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program – an intensive 6-month certificate for diversity executives in academic medicine. Cook Ross’s innovative approach makes diversity and inclusion essential business activities necessary for excellence in any business. Their focus on experiential learning without sacrificing the business case or the science makes for unusually impactful, lasting programs. Howard is a masterful facilitator and other Cook Ross consultants we’ve worked with are also experienced, skilled leaders in their field.

Thank you again for a terrific session on unconscious bias! The well researched content fit perfectly with our quest to become a university that models inclusive excellence. The session was very well received by the group and we especially appreciated your customizing it to an academic audience. The interactive nature of the presentation made for a very engaging afternoon. You were terrific!
