Paradigm Core Values

Paradigm positive impact on company external factors icon

Organizations have the power to drive lasting impact on the world around them. By helping companies become more diverse, inclusive, and equitable internally, we aim to produce positive change externally. We prioritize impact in the clients with whom we partner and the projects we choose.

Paradigm diversity and inclusion strategies via research icon

Effective diversity and inclusion strategies are grounded in quantitative and qualitative data and informed by thoughtful research. We let data define effective practices, use research to guide our approach, and measure the effectiveness of our work.


While many companies face similar challenges, each has unique strengths and areas of opportunity. The context, culture, and norms of an organization matter - they inform our understanding of barriers and choice of strategies. Rather than applying purported best practices, we work with each client to identify and design the strategies and tools that will be most effective for their organization.

Paradigm diversity and inclusion icon

Creating diverse and inclusive teams is both a moral and a business imperative. Treating employees fairly while empowering everyone to do their best work is the right thing to do. It’s also critical to building effective, high-performing teams. Just as we believe diversity and inclusion will make our clients stronger, we know that bringing together people who come from different backgrounds, have different life experiences, and hold different perspectives will make our own team better.

Paradigm company challenges and goals icon

We believe that people and organizations can grow and change. To foster a growth mindset internally and with our clients, we encourage setting bold and challenging goals, taking thoughtful risks, communicating openly about mistakes and failures, and giving honest, candid feedback. We value learning and growth over perfection.
