Why Inclusion Counts?
We know that a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace includes a space in which all individuals feel seen, valued, respected and engaged not regardless of – but with consideration and appreciation for differences.
Diversity is more than a quota to reach and includes difficult dialogue, equitable policies and purposeful systems of acknowledgment that intentionally support and enhance employee voice, engagement, satisfaction and retention.
Don’t let your diversity efforts miss the mark! Sustainability matters. We’ll make it count by supporting you before, during and after.
What people are saying!
“I cannot recommend Amber enough as an educator, facilitator, trainer, role model and/or leader. I have had the great fortune to hire, work with and learn from her. Amber is an expert on social justice issues along with developing young people. She is an inspiration!”
Cynthia L. MartinPresident & CEO at NCCJ – The National Conference for Community & Justice
“Inclusion Counts is exactly what our staff was looking for to lead us in conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom, as well anti-racism and anti-bias. Amber and Heather are super knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging, which creates a safe and comfortable environment for people to share with each other. We are already excited to have them come back to work with us in the future. Do yourself a favor and invite Inclusion Counts into your workspace – you won’t regret it.”

“Master Facilitator says it all. Heather Checky is a pleasure to work with always. She can motivate any crowd whether it be adults or children or a mix of both. Being super positive and uplifting is her strong suit. Heather knows how to lead a group focused on an objective and keep the train on the tracks with the many derailments that come with any sort of professional development.
It has been such a rewarding experience to have had the opportunity to work with Heather Checky. I do hope our paths continue to cross. I am always excited to know I will be interacting, engaging, and learning from Heather.
Joshua BrieseAssistant Principal, Loma Linda School
“I had the pleasure of working with Amber and Inclusion Counts . She has been a strong partner and coach in formulating our DEI charter and objectives. She is a phenomenal listener, seeking to deeply understand the issues at hand. She was able to frame our DEI discussions in the context of what’s most important for our team members, our organization’s culture and our mission to serve the community. Amber was able to gain credibility with our team very quickly and she became a trusted partner in furthering our DEI initiatives with our team and our Board. I very much appreciated Amber’s integrity, and candid communication style. She made a significant and positive impact on our organization.”
Brian NeiderCEO, AbilityPath
“Amber is a motivated and knows how to bring people together. I had the opportunity to have Amber speak at our first-ever Student Day at the Capitol press conference with our Lt. Governor. It was part of our efforts to secure a safe schools law. Amber’s personal story, adept ability at public speaking and likability all proved crucial in helping us secure support for the law’s passage.”
