Gina Gomez on 3 ways to be more inclusive in business
In this day and age, it’s so important for diverse voices to be heard.
However, many businesses continue to struggle with issues relating to race, gender, ability, age, marital status, religion and more. Our hearts may be open to all people, but sometimes that isn’t always well-conveyed through our website text or images or social media posts that we share on a daily basis.
Enter Gina Gomez.
If you don’t know Gina, she’s the Founder & Owner of Gina Gomez & Associates. With a proven track record and experience, Gina works with clients to create a profitable and sustainable business, where everyone feels welcomed, respected, and included. She’s a music junkie, meditator, motivator, feminist, and world traveler and she enjoys smart, funny people.
Referred to as “the Olivia Pope of the personal development industry” (don’t you just love that?), Gina is a Business Strategist & Advisor working with some of the most well-known and well-respected public figures in the online business world (and I’m not kidding about her A-list clients!)
After building a successful 20+ year career working with key accounts and top talent in Corporate America, Gina took her results-oriented business philosophy, critical thinking approach, and knack for developing relationships and started teaching business owners strategies to improve customer satisfaction and diversity awareness while increasing the bottom line.
