Use Ten Thousand Coffees to Improve Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace
Help every employee build a network of mentors, sponsors and peers
Underrepresented groups face unique challenges in reaching out to colleagues, putting them at a disadvantage for development. Diverse talent deserve the same opportunities, no matter their demographic, ethnicity, different backgrounds, or gender identity. Studies show that employees feel most included when they have a network of 3-5 mentors and sponsors in their work environment, leading to significantly more diverse talent in managerial ranks. Remove the hard work and anxiety of connecting with colleagues and take your inclusion efforts online.
Connect employees to discuss important Diversity, Equity & Inclusion topics
No matter how high your employee engagement rates, the benefits of a single inclusivity training session rarely last beyond a day or two, and can have the adverse effect of increasing bias. Making real change requires more than the occasional training session; it requires consistency over time. Create an inclusive culture in your workplace by encouraging employees to have conversations and supporting employee resource groups.
Unblock access to leadership and increase retention of high potential employees
Employees feel included when leaders are involved in their development, but they need support in leading difficult conversations. Similarly, most senior leaders want to meet with employees but have no easy way to do it.
Now you can take all the administrative burden away and provide equal access to leaders by matching mentors to groups of employees with ease.
Create a company culture of belonging through a virtual community
Employees find support in their peers, and sharing different perspectives, and feeling connected to colleagues is a key pillar of belonging in the workplace. Ten Thousand Coffees allows you to create a virtual community for your organization where diverse teams can lean on each other and move important conversations forward.
Create inclusion strategies you can measure
Wondering how workplace diversity is effecting company culture and your bottom line? After each interaction, we measure the top outcomes, collect employee stories, and provide an opportunity for recognition. Each quarter, we'll provide a summary of the results on-demand to make it easy to communicate the program ROI and measure progress.
What talent management leaders have to say about our D&I solution
"What we're finding through providing access to opportunity is a flood of diverse individuals from across our business resource groups and other groups raising their hands to have these conversations, wanting to learn, wanting to diversify their network."

We see employee adoption as high as 70-80% for many of our programs. We offer a platform-less experience by pushing the experience right to their company email. Pre-create the profile of the employees you want to invite using simple CSV, and all they have to do is claim their invitation.
Do you integrate with my existing HRIS?
We don't offer a formal integration (yet - coming soon). Even without a formal integration, we make it easy to incorporate Ten Thousand Coffees into your employee experience - onboarding, your LMS, in manager one-on-ones so that it's easy for employees to find. You can also upload a CSV of employees to invite. Employees access our site through a login link sent to their company email. If they no longer have access to their email, they'll lose access to our platform - no offboarding required.
