At LETTS CONSULT, we recognize that the demographics of the country and our workplaces are rapidly changing, and we are passionate about equality in the workplace.

We believe that to accomplish this, organizations must change how they attract, retain and develop talent, and individual employees must take more responsibility for their careers.



The US population of people who are two or more races is projected to be the fastest growing racial or ethnic group over the next several decades. Millennials are the largest adult population and the most racially diverse….43% are non- white. 39.1% of US women in 2021 completed college degrees vs 36.6% of men. Beginning in 2045, non-Hispanic whites will no longer make up the majority of the population. By 2055, the US will not have a single racial or ethnic majority.

Meet The Team

As a collective, we are making a difference by bridging business and potential. We are dedicated to closing the gender parity gaps for women in business. As a team, we hope you will join us to make a change together. Connect with us!
