Consulting

Stiletto Network provides business consulting services on diversity and inclusion to global corporations, women’s groups, academic institutions, and philanthropies.

Most recently, Stiletto Network worked with Pamela Thomas-Graham, the former Chief Marketing Officer of Credit Suisse, to launch the women’s segment of the firm’s New Markets Initiative, which provided wealth advisory services for women, African Americans, and LGBT.

Subsequently, with Shaquille O’Neal and Credit Suisse, Stiletto Network launched Momentum: Black Men’s Leadership Retreat, which convened 50 of the nation’s most high-powered African American men in 2014 to focus on job-creation and economic empowerment in the black community.

Not only am I seeing new networks, self-created and ones that came from dust, but I’m also seeing existing networks rethinking their missions. They’re coming together to find synergies. There’s a growing sense that this is a period in history where we are not only imagining but knowing that if we get together and push, we’ll take a giant leap forward. It’s rooted in the funding space, and this is the tipping point.”
