Your inclusion action plan needs Bravely.

The Challenge:

Companies are spending more than ever on diversity and inclusion initiatives, but they're still failing to support diverse talent in meaningful ways.

  • 50% of employees are unfamiliar with their companies’ diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, or unsure whether their companies even have these programs. (Bravely, Independent Research, 2019)

  • Companies who succeed in hiring diverse talent often struggle to retain these employees. In some industries, women turn over at 2x the rate of men, and Black and Latino employees are 3.5x more likely to leave their jobs compared to white and Asian colleagues. (Kapor Center, Tech Leavers Study, 2017)

  • Even the most robust diversity and inclusion programs fail to foster psychological safety. Eighty percent of LGBTQ+ employees say they avoid tough conversations because of negative experiences with past employers. (Bravely, Independent Research, 2019)

How Bravely can help

By offering underrepresented employees access to confidential coaching, HR leaders can provide their diverse talent with an outlet that feels safe from judgement or retribution. Coaches work outside the walls of employees’ companies, providing them with neutral and unbiased guidance around a variety of inclusion-related issues.

  • Equitable access:

    Bravely levels the playing field when it comes to professional development, providing access to people who might otherwise be overlooked. Employees from underrepresented groups benefit from confidential sessions with objective coaches, and tend to use Bravely at higher rates.

  • A safe first step:

    Bravely helps employees have difficult conversations without fear of retribution. 91% of employees say they wouldn’t have approached their leaders for a crucial conversation if they hadn’t spoken to Bravely first, according to post-session surveys. “I can't begin to express how important a service like this is, especially for women in the workplace, and I'm so grateful for the 45 mins that my Pro took to help me navigate a tricky interpersonal issue. I'm telling all my coworkers to use this service. Thank you for what you do.” — Bravely user

  • Actionable insights:

    Aggregated and de-identified data from employee conversations is shared with employers, helping them understand where to focus their ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

What employees are saying

  • “I struggle with ensuring that the perception I give off matches my intention. That’s twice as difficult if you’re a woman of color. The existence of Bravely and having my Pro as a confidant and mentor is really helpful and, honestly, necessary.”

  • “[My Pro] gave me the reassurance I needed in my confidence to speak up about my needs.”

Organizations are more likely to thrive when employees feel that their perspectives are recognized and respected, and that their workplaces are safe and welcoming to all backgrounds and identities.
