Our vision at Yin Consulting is to nurture a more racially just and inclusive environment for all. We go about this in two ways:
- Promoting the development and success of organizations run by women, LGBTQ+ people, and men of color.
- Supporting organizations that serve people of color in more fully embodying their values of diversity, equity and inclusion.

For organizations serving communities of color...
We want to support your organization in more fully embodying its goals, values and purpose. What we focus on is engaging those values in the daily life of your company. Here is a quick survey to see if Yin Consulting is a good fit for you:
Do you predominantly serve communities of color?
Are people of color in the minority of your organization’s leadership?
If people of color are in the majority of your company, do you see room for improvement in your leadership paradigm?
Do you want the internal operations of your business to better reflect its espoused values?
Do you see potential for the overall social, sexual, or racial equity of your business community to evolve?
If you said YES to any of these questions, we are ready to support you.
