We approach
diversity and inclusion
as a performance lever   

Today we live in a world where diversity is a reality, inclusion is a necessity

We know that companies that prioritize inclusivity and diversity are:  

2 times more likely to meet or exceed their financial goals

3 times more likely to be high-performing

6  times more likely to be innovative and agile 

8 times more likely to achieve better business outcomes*

At Yojoa, we understand that implementing an inclusive business culture is not a smooth ride. But we believe that together we can make inclusion a reality.  


Our solutions

Understand diversity and inclusion

Everyone talks about diversity and inclusion, but what does this mean for you, in your context? In order to deconstruct these concepts, we offer: 

  • workshops to understand how unconscious biais limit performance

  • workshops to understand how including diversity enhances creativity and performance

  • tailor made workshops

  • presentations on diversity inclusion as a proven performance tool

Harness it

For diversity inclusion to have an impact on business performance, and for you to get everyone on board, it is essential to give employees a voice, to allow them to express their feelings about the organisational culture, to listen to them and to take their opinions into account.

We offer: 

  • an inventory and competitive analysis

  • an audit reflecting the needs of each department

  • reporting

Yojoa is an organisation that supports companies in their journey towards greater diversity and inclusion. Twenty years of professional experience in various parts of the world have shown us that when excluded or discriminated people have a voice, and that voice is heard, we all become better people, collectively. We are convinced that inclusion is the answer to society's biggest challenges and that those who jump on the bandwagon today will be tomorrow's winners.
