Propelle helps tech-driven, conscious businesses walk the talk of DEI. We help teams identify behaviors and processes that block inclusion. We help teams create environments that foster ownership, dialogue, and inclusion.
Marguerite and Lisa joined forces over a passion to support those whose voices need amplification. They started with women in tech and have since grown to support all diversity groups under the DEI momentum toward the power of inclusive leadership principles. They believe that diversity of thought brings better thinking and more empathy to the world. They leverage an 'others-centred' lens in their content and in their work with clients.

"We love that Propelle connects innovation with the inclusion conversation. It was one of the best experiences we have had working with any supplier. You really knocked it out of the park with the Inclusive Innovation work you delivered for Telus. We will be working together for a long time to come."
