Your work as a D&I leader isn't easy.

We see you. You're tasked with solving a myriad of complex issues and that isn't easy.

  • You're expected to change deep-rooted culture and heal generational trauma
  • You face overwhelm as a result of conflicting priorities - each one as important as the next
  • You have to prove the business case for D&I...over and over again
  • You may be forced to take a back seat vis-a-vis other departments, like Sales and Finance
  • There's a lack of clarity around what your company actually needs as it relates to D&I
  • You lack budget required to complete all the tasks (or, there's too much budget and no way to manage expectations!)
  • You lack full support from the leadership team
  • You don't have access to the data you need - data has never been accurately collected
  • You don't have a full support team and it's tough to get access to headcount
  • There's an inconsistency in prioritization from an organization perspective re D&I focus areas

From diverse hiring, to onboarding remote colleagues, to having to design, scale and deploy D&I strategies for global teams with limited resources… solving for Diversity & Inclusion can feel overwhelming.

You might even be expected to do all of this with a small budget, no team, and by deploying one or two workshops per year!

We get it. And we’re here to make your life easier, so that you have time and space to achieve an inclusive culture that benefits your entire team and organization.

Simple and proven, Beenova AI focuses on consistent, measurable and human-based D&I strategies.

Case Studies

DELLEMC


We collaborated with the Dell EMC on an upskilling program for their female executives across the Middle East Africa. We focused on career progress, negotiation and coaching. We also deployed our Beenova AI technology as a learning tool for the teams.

  • Untrained teams, no clear direction on what kind of training would be required. Lack of access to personalized learning.
  • Many voices with different needs, working across different verticals in the organization, but all needed to upskill.
  • No community or sense of belonging for any of the female executive team.

"We've done many trainings - including with Accenture and EY - and none were as useful as this one."

GENERAL ELECTRIC


The General Electric team invited us to host a facilitation for their up-and-coming Human Resources talent. We worked on inclusive technology, inclusive workspaces and DEI.

  • Lack of clarity regarding how to build teams around the Future of Work and Digital Literacy
  • Struggling to understand how to use the best technologies for the growth of top employees

“We love the way you emphasized the importance of having a deep sense of self-awareness as a key role to future proof business and personal success. We listened closely when you talked about the balance blending of AI and EI and their significance as part of the exponential evolution within self. Thank you for being a part of our success.”

IBM


Major gaps faced the team around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We created a cohesive group around the professional advancement of women at work, leveraging insights from data around promotions, pay and rank. We devised a communications campaign and framework to track, measure and design solutions for the comprehensive integration of People of Determination. Problems we tackled head on included:

  • Promotion gaps between women and men;
  • A lack of awareness around working with People of Determination (ie. mindfulness around language, behavior and integration);
  • Outdated messaging around DEI (as it had never been a priority).

“The campaign we have recently launched would not have been possible without Jos spearheading the way with sheer determination and foresight. This has been a pioneering effort…”

BESTJOBS


BestJobs is a recruitment team and agency based out of Eastern Europe. Their team has immediate visibility into diversity challenges around hiring and were shocked at some of the results they were experiencing. They felt it was a priority to tackle the issue of DEI in hiring and recruitment and took a responsibility to leverage both a keynote and algorithmic design.

Post a keynote delivered by Jos during their annual meeting, the team ran a pilot with Beenova AI to work on algorithms that solved for:

  • Language issues around diversity and hiring;
  • Proposed role variations between women and men;
  • Bias in hiring language.

“Jos is a very experienced professional that managed to fully grab the attention of the crowd with her stunning speech and passion on the subject of Diversity & Inclusion.”

BestJobs, CEO
