Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Consulting


Hyland Solutions provides consulting to guide organizations toward innovative, inclusive, and equitable cultures. Our clients include organizational leaders, teams, and boards. We assist in identifying and overcoming immediate obstacles and in advancing DEI as strategic, cultural change. With Mariann Hyland’s training and experience as a lawyer, she brings an understanding of legal rights and responsibilities related to DEI in the workplace. In addition, drawing on Mariann’s MSW training and DEI leadership experience, Hyland Solutions offers a holistic approach to DEI consulting. Using an equity lens that’s sensitive to each client’s unique situation, we help clients deliver on the business and ethical case for DEI. 

Are you seeking to:

  • Clarify DEI issues and options.
  • Assess culture or climate.
  • Diversify your workforce and increase retention of people of color.
  • Develop a DEI plan that’s aligned with your mission and strategic priorities.

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

– James Baldwin


Hyland Solutions understands that civil rights compliance alone does not create inclusive, equitable workplaces. We bring you holistic thinking to create systemic change as a foundation for cultural transformation. Mariann and her multi-cultural team have a deep commitment to meeting clients where they are. We use a strength-based, trauma-informed approach to our engagement with all stakeholders. Paced to align with your organization’s needs, we facilitate DEI as strategic and cultural change.

Heal Conflict. Repair Harm. Empower Transformation.

“Mariann’s commitment to diversity goals and leadership toward achieving those goals is exemplary. She brought the organization to a new level of understanding about diversity and inclusion and what we need to do to make real progress toward long-stated goals.”
