CEO and Founder

Dr. Jonathan King is a DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion) Consultant who works closely with Colleges and Universities to facilitate their journey toward becoming more inclusive at every level of the organization. His mission is to create workplaces that champion the idea of creating unity in diversity, where all employees are respected and valued regardless of their color, ethnic heritage, nationality, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

Jonathan’s Personal Journey

Jonathan’s story is a vivid example of how the fight for inclusivity is not just a political or social movement but a deeply personal journey. He grew up watching his parents’ courage and determination in fighting for their children’s rights, which sowed the first seeds of inclusive leadership within him.

However, Jonathan’s path toward becoming an inclusive leader was not easy. He faced the harsh realities of racism and discrimination from a young age, being the only black student in an all-white school. Despite the hostility, Jonathan remained focused and persevered, working hard to catch up academically and eventually gaining acceptance from his peers.

The Value of Humility and Vulnerability

This experience taught Jonathan the value of humility and vulnerability in becoming an inclusive leader. He recognized that inclusivity is not just about accepting others but also about being open to change and growth. It requires acknowledging one’s own biases and actively working towards eliminating them.

Inspiration from the Civil Rights Movement

Jonathan’s journey toward becoming an inclusive leader was further strengthened by his parent’s involvement in the civil rights movement. Their sacrifices and struggles motivated Jonathan to work towards creating a more just and equal world. He recognized that the fight for inclusivity was not just about education but about all aspects of life, including work and community.
