Melissa Crum

Name: Dr. Melissa Crum

Organization’s Name: Mosaic Education Network

How I can help you (my areas of expertise):

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Types of consulting projects I like to engage in: Board leadership, creating productive workplace culture.

Projects outside my purview: Board governance, fundraising.

My ideal client would be… an organization under 500 people who is interested in aligning their talent and performance management systems with the mission, vision and values. Ideally, the organization has done some early-stage DEI initiatives that included the entire organization.

Years I’ve been consulting: 6 years.

What drew you to work with the nonprofit sector? Mission-focused organizations tend to be more interested in substantive change. I love working with organizations who understand DEI from a head (practical and business case) and heart (social justice) perspective.

Most recent book I’ve read: “The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Proser Together” by Heather McGhee.

When not working I like to … Travel, read or get lost in my Netflix que.
