Dismantling the need for DEI

by normalizing diversity of thought, raising cultural awareness, and promoting emotional intelligence to make this world a better place for everyone. 

Our Story

FIG Strategy & Consulting was founded by TaChelle Lawson, who wanted to change how businesses approached diversity, equity and inclusion. With over 20 years in the hospitality, food & beverage, marketing and luxury service industries, TaChelle used her unique perspective and experiences to start FIG in 2017. At FIG, we believe that DEI is more than just another HR program or company initiative, it is a business strategy.
