Kim Forseille, Talent Management, Capital Power Corporation

As part of McMaster University’s effort to build an inclusive community, Ibis Consulting Group consultants assisted us with all phases of our online university-wide climate survey. The IBIS team was practical, versatile, and reliable, working with us to match their approach to our unique situation here. They worked very efficiently and produced an excellent quality survey much faster than we could have hoped to do ourselves. The sponsors of the survey were pleased with the quality and detail of the information provided by the survey and by IBIS’ analysis of it. The IBIS people were friendly, reliable and efficient and I have really enjoyed working with them on this project.

Mark Walma, Director, Human Rights and Equity Services, McMaster University

I really thought the actors’ presence, and bringing those biases to life, was really phenomenal.

Erika Hopkins, Global Talent Management, Staples

While all phases of our engagement with IBIS so far have been exceptional, we have been especially impressed with the data gathering and analysis aspects. Through interviews, focus groups and a comprehensive survey, IBIS was able to gather a treasure-trove of information. We gained significant insights from the data. This has provided us with an extremely strong foundation from which we can confidently base our decisions to further our Diversity and Inclusion initiative.
