Hi! I'm Mante (she/her)


I’ve spent over 15 years working with organizations to advance diversity, equality and inclusion. 
I know what it is like to be recruited to a board position in order to check a box. I also know what it takes to cultivate a board and senior leadership team where everyone can experience inclusion,  psychological safety, and be treated equitably.  
Board diversity is more than representation around the table. It involves a culture where individuals with different social identities and lived experience can inform decision-making, and where their advice has value. 
And now, I am ready to share specific strategies and experience I’ve acquired to help professionals like you to advance organizational change and ensure that your board members and senior leaders are representative of the communities you serve.

As a DEI Consultant and Change Management Practitioner, I have: 

  • Worked with thousands of professionals to address organization-wide DEI.
  • Advised senior executives across Canada's federal government on DEI, including strategies related to recruitment and retention.
  • Served as the Ontario Bar Association's Innovator in Residence to address the recruitment and retention of Indigenous, Black and other Racialized lawyers.
  • Served on selection committees to recruit senior leaders across various organizations.
  • Been elected to five boards of directors, representing various sectors from international human rights to healthcare and education.
