We Started Collective to Challenge the Status Quo
After nearly a decade working in industries like tech, media, education, and finance, our founding team members were disillusioned by traditional workplace culture where important identities and perspectives were being overlooked (sound familiar?). In 2017, we came together with a passion and readiness to change the world of work. Leveraging our lived experiences as underrepresented talent in the workplace, we knew we could utilize our professional and academic backgrounds to help companies address the common problems hindering their diversity efforts.
Enter Collective, a DEI consultancy and research lab that is shifting how millennial-driven organizations build, engage, and retain diverse teams in today’s workforce. Led by founder and tech veteran Kellie Wagner, we take a bold approach to building inclusion into the foundation of organizations, using a holistic blend of comprehensive data and an emphasis on the human experience. We believe in true partnerships that amplify marginalized voices and drive sustainable change.
The journey is hard, but we’ve got your back.
