Learn More About Coaching & Advising
Individual Inclusive Leadership Coaching
Our coaching clients are leaders who want to move through their fears of saying the wrong thing, build understanding and empathy, and know how to better lead diverse and inclusive teams and organizations. We also work with leaders who may have made a misstep and want to ensure they don’t make another. Everyone is on a unique learning path. We meet each person where they are at and provide guidance and actionable steps to immediately put into practice that are uniquely catered to their leadership journey.
DEI & ERG Lead Advising
DEI leaders and committees come to us looking to build strategies across global teams that develop empathy, cultivate allyship, reduce acts of exclusion, and foster psychological safety and belonging. If you’re newly established as a committe or just starting out in your DEI career, you might work with our advisors on understanding best practices, conducting assessments and data analysis, developing strategies, influencing leaders, creating committee charters and roles, and setting measurable and achievable short- and long-term goals. We also advise ERGs wanting to develop allyship programs and expand their programming to drive organizational change.
Group inclusive leadership coaching is available as a standalone option or as part of our training packages.

What Our Customers Say
Google began working with Change Catalyst (now Empovia!) nearly a decade ago supporting our work in racial equity and justice…. Empovia have long been leaders in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Allyship, and each engagement with Melinda, Wayne and team becomes a learning experience. Engaging with Empovia fosters in people, communities and businesses greater awareness, empathy and advocacy skills. Google has, and I have, trusted Empovia with our DEI impact, and I am excited to see how Empovia will continue this legacy.
“I loved the workshop because I love this topic first and foremost, its so much a part of what we do… around hiring – which is the hardest thing I have to do, especially as we often have to hire fast, and time is always our enemy.”

“Working with the Empovia (formerly Change Catalyst) Team for the past 12 months has been nothing short of an amazing experience! Melinda and Cory are well-versed as facilitators and take the time to understand their audience both personally and professionally to create the best environment for absorbing information. We’ve had three cohorts… — with a fourth starting soon — and we continue to receive phenomenal feedback regarding new insights and perspectives from our colleagues. We cherish our continued partnership with Melinda and the Empovia Team and thank them for being a part of our DE&I journey at BENlabs.”
