CULTURE ASSESSMENT & ALIGNMENT

Nothing is more important to a company’s success than building an engaging and inspiring culture across all dimensions. Using qualitative and quantitative measures, we fully assess company culture and identify employee strength areas. Based on those findings, we develop appropriate programming to help the organization establish a positive organizational culture and climate.

 

"The work done by Rice Education Consulting provided my college with suggested courses of action to enhance our inclusive excellence efforts that are producing success and other strategies to address areas where we need additional work. As dean of the college, I appreciate the high quality approach undertaken by Rice Education Consulting, LLC. Having a reputable external agency such as Rice Education Consulting, LLC which has demonstrated expertise in inclusive excellence practices, allowed our college to seek out input from students, faculty and staff in an open and safe manner so that we could establish a data baseline to measure against as we implement many of the suggested solutions offered in the report prepared for us."

Dr. Cindy Reed, Dean, College of Education and Human Services, Northern Kentucky University

CONSULTING

We partner with our clients, lending our years of experience, to provide insight and technical assistance for Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, employee engagement & community building. We leverage synergies between our clients’ industry expertise and our expertise in developing organizational culture and the people within those organizations to drive positive change.

 

"I greatly appreciate the assistance and guidance that your organization has provided over the past couple of years, and I look forward to a continued relationship in the future. As I am assured that this partnership will continue to yield excellent results in providing high quality education for the children of CATA."

Derrick Shelton, Superintendent/Regional Vice President, CATA

STRATEGIC PLANNING

Organizational transformation is a process that requires a commitment from key stakeholders and accountability at all levels to be successful.  That is why we partner with organizations to develop action plans and strategic plans in Diversity & Inclusion, organizational culture and engagement. We provide our clients with a clear “road map” and the necessary training and technical support to execute these plans.

 

"You and your team were very receptive to feedback. We now have a framework to guide our action steps from this point forward. I am grateful for the time you put into planning the training to meet our specific needs. Thank you so much and I wish you continued success!"

Dwight Carter, Former Principal, Lincoln High School

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION (D&I)

We offer customizable Diversity and Inclusion services that assist our clients in building inclusive work and living environments. These services range from individual and organizational assessments, multi-aspect trainings, D&I programs and the creation of D&I action and strategy plans.

 

"Our student demographic is changing and Mr. Rice and his team prepared us on sensitive subjects so that we may better serve these students. The time the presenters spent with our staff was very informative and will help them with better ideas and helpful teaching tools for our many students from different cultures. All of this information will help ensure we remain "The Number One School in the State" for a 5th year."

Chad Carr, Executive Vice President, Accel Schools
