Consulting & Strategy

With nearly 30 years of experience addressing organizational development issues, including deep expertise in the role of unconscious bias (UB) in the workplace, Cook Ross has developed a series of effective diversity and inclusion (D&I) intervention strategies in four major areas to drive inclusion and belonging in organizations across the globe.
Partnering for culture change since 1989
Cook Ross’ four intervention strategies are designed to impact an entire organization holistically, resulting in cultural development and sustainable change.

Education & Training

Education plays a critical role in larger strategic initiatives by providing a common understanding of goals, objectives, and strategies.


Priming tools provide employees with tools to refresh and re-set skills on a just-in-time basis, reinforcing changes in behaviors over time.

Systems & Structures

We  review, develop, and enhance clients’ recruiting practices, people management efforts, succession management decisions, and mentoring programs.

Accountability & Sustainability

What gets measured gets done. Carefully constructed metrics provide the means to track an organization’s performance over time and are essential to any serious change effort.

Sustainable Change

We believe sustainable, long-term change occurs at an organization’s cultural level, as opposed to focusing only on individual growth. We actively study systems theory and organizational culture change to identify leverage points in organizational flow and the relationship between those points. This allows us to holistically understand how to transform an organization’s culture into one that is truly inclusive and culturally competent.

Why is partnership important to the way we work?
