“Don’t just create your future, create for yourself a BETTER future. “ (Maria Drueco)

I help organizations improve their performance by developing more inclusive work cultures that support, engage and promote people from diverse backgrounds. I hold an IPMA Canada Advanced Certified HR Professional designation, with a career spanning more than 20 years in various industries, the last 10 years in Human Resources and learning and development. My additional training during the last 4 years shaped my knowledge and learning on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). DEI is now my focus of work in my coaching, consulting, and training. I am skilled in needs analysis, using different tools to identify skills gaps within organizations and coach leaders on how to improve business outcomes based on quantitative and qualitative data. I have worked with various industries, from medium to large-sized organizations, including the public sector, and coached leaders at all levels: Executives/ Senior Leaders, Managers, and front-line supervisors. My knowledge of Inclusive Leadership Development, Intercultural Intelligence, Team Alignment, and Psychological Safety gives me the ability to deliver end-to-end solutions that have been applied to strategic consulting, coaching, design, and delivery of DEI programs. As an immigrant and member of the underrepresented group, I have lived experiences of workplace bullying and harassment and have also encountered micro-aggressive behaviors, hence, I became passionate about using my knowledge, education, and experience in educating individuals, developing inclusive leaders, and improving the workplace culture.
