Unleash Your Diversity and Inclusion Business Potential 


Virtcom Consulting: Our Story




Founded in 2000 by two Harvard Graduate students, 

hailing from the Strategy Consulting/Technology and Investment Banking sectors.


 In 2004, pioneered a data-driven business case for diversity

(diversity-ROI), based on missed business opportunities which are 

quantified and measured. In the same year, the firm launched the World Diversity Leadership Summit ("WDLS") in Prague Czech Republic, marking the first major Global Corporate diversity conference of its kind.


In 2007 the WDLS was hosted at the United Nations and included a Global CEO Leadership Panel, featuring the CEOs of Adecco, Aviva, HSBC, Procter & Gamble, MGM Entertainment and Bud Selig, Commissioner of Major League Baseball. 


In 2009, the firm changed the game for board diversification by unveiling a whitepaper with

data analytics in support of diverse boards, while officially unveiling the d-ROI model and 6 case studies. The whitepaper served as the centerpiece for the Stanford Law School Board Diversification Conference that included CEOs and Board Members from Exxon, Kodak, Visa and WalMart. The effort resulted in the development of the first of its kind diverse talent Board candidate database still in use today. In same year performed ground-breaking research on the "frozen-middle manager" layer that typically undermines D&I initiatives. The key concerns of middle managers is that D&I and in particular training offered no business value, and no WIFM (what's in it for me)


In 2012, after 3 years of middle and senior manager pilot programs,  the firm's business driven case for diversity was integrated into cultural skills development with the unveiling of our Inclusive Leadership Series workshops. The purpose of Inclusive Leadership is to build a culture of Inclusion, Engagement and High Performance. The purpose is based on Gallup data that shows  when Inclusion increases in the workforce, employee engagement and high performance increase as well. Evaluations show that middle managers understand clear WIFM (they get great business skills), and change the mindset from "one and done" diversity training expectation to a holistic D&I mindset, where cultural skills are iterative and offered over a 2-3 year timeframe.



In 2018, most client needs fall within 3 Categories:

About Us

Virtcom Consulting LLC  is a hybrid management consultancy, tapping into both the art and science of business optimization leveraging Diversity and inclusion. At our core is a sophisticated platform of financial and business intelligence analytics, which call our Return on Investment (ROI)Calculators. Estabished in 2000, the firm leverages hundreds of datapoints, so that Virtcom's data scientists can uncover missed business opportunities. These missed business opportunities are not "run of the mill" but are extremely hard to find because they are an  unseen subset  called missed diversity business opportunities or "blindspots". However analytics alone rarely leads to monetization without the prospects of strong cultural support tools. Virtcom arms middle and senior managers with advanced leadership competencies that go beyond the typical soft skills, by leading to tangible, measurable business impact. Whether you are a funded startup in the Renewable Energy space or a Fortune 500 company in manufacturing, Virtcom can offer a customized solution that transforms your organization from D&I "flabby" to D&I "fit." 



Our Business Methodology:

The Virtcom Transformation process is data first, but people driven. Phase 1 is the Audit or Assessment phase which is highly data-collection intensive. Virtcom data scientists with help you comb your SAP or other ERP system to look for new dimensions of your data that is typically not seen, heard or found. The net result of the process is the identication of the blindspots or corporate diversity and inclusion optimization opportunities. In the case of the startup, especially in Renewable Energy, the Virtcom team has a team of specialists from Real Estate and Facilities professionals to technology assessment experts to determine the pathway to growth, with the least downside and risk. 

In phase 2, the data scientists quantify the blindspots opportunities and create three tier scenario analysis to derive your Blindspots d-ROI calculator. In phase 2 for startups such as Renewable Energy, our team layouts out your corporate blueprint- a document of all key roles and responsibilities projects and timelines over a minimum 100 day period.
