Let Us Be Part of The Solution
Aarons Group offers the comprehensive capabilities and deep bench strength needed to help you solve the most complex issues of your organization related to diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging.
"I was deeply frustrated by being the only one in the room - the only person of color, the only Black person, the youngest, the lowest-ranked person," says Aarons-Martin. "There were always so many voices missing, people I knew who should be standing next to me who could add real value. I founded Aarons Group to bring together the missing voices and help organizations create tailored solutions to an age-old problem: helping people feel like they belong."
Today, Aarons Group helps individuals and companies through consultative services:
next-generation leadership development
"Change is always happening around us, constantly disrupting how we live and work," says Omari Aarons-Martin, Founder and Managing Partner of Aarons Group LLC. "Especially when it comes to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, change challenges often long-held, deep-seated notions about what's right and fair that we have to examine. We are building language in real-time for how to do that."
At our core, Aarons Group is powered by the experience and network of our founder from 15+ years of employment at Corporate America in Fortune 150 companies, and 10+ years of non-profit, not-for-profit and governmental board service.
What we've learned: people are at the heart of everything we do. Creating environments that are open, collaborative, and safe leads to approaches and strategies that are profitable and help people thrive.
Whether you have a plan or need one, Aarons Group can help you build or refresh a diversity, equity, and inclusion plan to meet your needs, and integrate fully with culture change initiatives underway. Together, we can foster belonging among your employees, clients, partners, and the public.
Unsure of whether you need a multicultural employee resource group (ERG), a diversity council, or a business resource group? Maybe your ERGs are stalling and looking for new ways to grow? Aarons Group can help you conduct a needs assessment and match strategies to whichever stage you're in and where you're trying to go.
You have leaders that want to do the right thing but aren't sure where to start. You have identified executives to become inclusion champions and want to build their cultural competence and fluency. Whatever your situation, Aarons Group can pair you with a coach to guide your team on the next steps.
You have identified your next generation of leaders and want to ensure they're prepared to lead a 21st century company. Aarons Group can help coach and develop your high potential people to take on new assignments as skilled managers and thought leaders.
"We use the word 'diverse' when we really mean people of color, or specifically Black, Asian, Indigenous or Latinx. The problem is that we are all diverse, so when we say we are focused on 'diversity,' that means everyone.
It doesn't lend itself to changing our practices to have different, more inclusive outcomes."
