To establish themselves as a diversity model in order to attract the best talent and lucrative contracts.


  • ECCO helped form the Ryan Diversity Steering Committee and worked with the group to create a Ryan business case for diversity, strategic plan, and implementation goals for success.
  • We identified diversity successes in the workplace and analyzed them to make them repeatable, as well as minimizing the business and productivity loss associated when diversity was not honored.
