Who We Are

About Nova

Nova was co-founded by four women determined to change 'business as usual'.  With decades of experience in advertising, communications, and diversity & inclusion, the Nova founders brought their unique superpowers together to create a change-making organization.  Through the years, our Nova team has grown to include multiple practice areas and a variety of cross-industry experiences - continuing to strengthen our team’s ability to solve organizational challenges.

At Nova we believe that everyone deserves to work in an inclusive environment where they can thrive. We are a women-owned, BIPOC led business committed to evolving organizational culture and ensuring that everyone has an equitable opportunity to succeed.

Nova supports DEI and People leaders in building equity and attaining genuine change, regardless of where they are on the DEI path. We believe that when we know better, we can do better.

HOW NOVA OPERATES:

  • Nova provides full-time staff (and their families) 100% healthcare coverage for medical insurance
  • Our medical insurance covers gender affirmation benefits 
  • Nova offers unlimited PTO and hybrid/remote/flexible working schedules 
  • Nova is fully closed for 2 weeks every August, to offer recharging time and space to all employees 
  • Nova’s closed office holidays include election day, Juneteenth, Indigenous People’s Day, and will be updated in 2023 to include Jewish high holidays and Muslim Eids  

Our Mission

Our mission is to make the world a more inclusive place by helping organizations build and sustain DEI programs with real impact. To us, impact must be both qualitative and quantitative - we should hear it in the stories and experiences of your employees, and we should see it in the business results.

Whether you're just getting started with DEI or are far along in the process, we can help you take your program to the next level. We don't just talk about DEI, we live it and love it.

If you're ready to take the next step on the journey, reach out to us today to learn more about what we can do for you.
