Enlightened Solutions is a mission-driven organization, founded on the belief that workplace equity and inclusion are not just 21st Century buzzwords.
Chinenye (“ChiChi”) Nkemere and Bethany Studenic are two very different women. ChiChi’s parents immigrated to the United States from Nigeria, building an impressive life in suburban Cleveland. Bethany is the second oldest of eight children from rural Northeast Ohio, with roots dating back to the 1700s.
Bethany and ChiChi met while working their dream jobs, but the experience was marred by pervasive workplace inequity. Through this firsthand experience, they learned three key lessons:
There is no place to turn when one has experienced workplace trauma;
There is a lack of resources for employers and organizations who want to proactively prevent and counteract structural workplace inequity and abuse; and
The “open secret” of workplace inequity is a rarely researched problem, with a pernicious effect on the American workforce.
