Level Up Your Organization’s DEI Outcomes

Hi, I’m Ivan Lee

I’m a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion consultant with 15 years of experience leading change initiatives at organizations such as Apple, AmeriCorps, and T-Mobile.

I developed the Level Up framework from my experience improving the DEI programs at those organizations. The framework focuses on helping organizations and leaders overcome challenges that have been hindering their growth and effectiveness, and enabling their people to thrive.

What Is the Level Up Framework?

The Level Up Framework consists of four parts:

Part 1: OBSERVE
Observe and Identify Root Problem and Causes

Part 2: CONNECT
Connect Solutions to Team’s Motivation

Part 3: IMPLEMENT
Implement Solutions through Infrastructure Change

Part 4: IMPROVE
Measure Results and Make Adjustments

Case Studies

Case Study: DEI Training at Major Telecom Company

Applying the Level Up framework led to an increase of cultural training completion from 90% to 98%, a reduction of completion time by 75%, and a 4.8/5 rating on the new training curriculum.

Case Study: Speaking Up at Major Telecom Company

After identifying barriers, we successfully advocated for a change from a “Speak Up” policy to a “Stand Up” policy; shifting company culture from merely enforcing regulated behaviors to encouraging and building a positive culture of respect.

Case Study: Learning and Development at Fortune 5 Company

After meeting with each person on the team and discovering the root issues, we implemented stakeholder interviews and Qualtrics. This closed the learning loop and improved the efficacy and speed of training development.

Is there a way I can help you and your organization?
