WHO WE ARE 2017-09-21T09:52:31+00:00
No More ‘Business as Usual’

The Nova Collective is a women and Black owned business that builds inclusive cultures.
Are we a diversity & inclusion company?  Absolutely. And so much more.

Nova practices diversity & inclusion both explicitly and implicitly:

Explicit: Nova offers programs, products and consulting services that build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce.
Implicit: Our teams are made up of a minimum of 75% women and 51% people of color.  So when we create core values campaigns or compliance trainings, our work represents a variety of identities and experiences.

Founded in Representation

With decades of experience in corporate communication and learning, the founders of Nova have led organizational change across industries such as tech, finance, healthcare, and CPG.

Giving Back
