Our story

In 2015, our quest for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion commenced, ignited by our visionary founder, Ingrid Harb through the inception of the Women Ambassadors Forum during her collegiate years. Subsequently, we forged alliances with over 70 Fortune 500 Companies, forging global programs that have reached women from 150+ countries. While our initial focus centered on women, we swiftly recognized that true transformation necessitated addressing the very ecosystems in which they roiled. Hence, our mission pivoted, equipping organization with transformational training, immersive learning experiences, and insightful consulting services, fostering inclusive cultures that empower all individuals, particularly women, to flourish. This gave birth to NOTA, now one of the world’s foremost DEIAB speakers bureaus, elevating Employee Resource Groups and DEI/Learning & Development departments with narratives that transcend intersectionality, awakening the vast potential within humanity and instigating profound systemic change.

MISSION

At the heart of our mission is the belief that true progress toward equity occurs when we address the systemic barriers within workplace ecosystems.

VISION

By partnering with companies, we strive to foster environments that go beyond mere tolerance, embracing diversity and actively working toward equitable practices. Through our collaborative efforts, we aim to empower individuals, ERGs, and organizations alike, creating a future where everyone can thrive and succeed, regardless of their background or identity.

Our work speaks for itself

I’ve worked with Ingrid quite a bit over the past year in my role as Global Co-Lead of the Black Latinx Indigenous Group. She has helped our affinity group tremendously by providing insights, and working with us to obtain guest speakers, both from within her extensive network, along with requests outside of that network. She also provided content for heritage months and guidance for planning events. NOTA Inclusion brought our group structure, in the form of a tracker for our events, inclusive of categorizing those activities, along with a recommendation to align these to an overall theme for the year. Ingrid and her NOTA Inclusion team also developed our agenda and presentation for a DEI speaking engagement at an industry conference, which was extremely well received. I would highly recommend Ingrid and her organization, NOTA Inclusion. She’s been such a pleasure to work with and I looking forward to our continued partnership.

Ingrid’s dedication and creativity were instrumental in coordinating a series of activities that truly embraced the spirit for Hispanic Heritage Month. Ingrid’s role in identifying and securing our keynote speaker, as well as suggesting thought-provoking themes for discussion, demonstrated her keen insight into the essence of Hispanic Heritage Month. Her choices of themes allowed us to delve deep into meaningful conversations about our heritage, identity, and shared experiences. In addition to these crucial tasks, her team contributed in creating visuals that were both visually appealing and culturally resonant. Her designs added a unique and professional touch to our promotional materials and digital assets.

Ingrid’s passion is infectious and her spirit indomitable. Nielsen’s Women Business Resource Group, Women in Nielsen (WIN), first began working with Ingrid in early 2021. Many of our representatives attended her galvanizing event, the Women’s Ambassador Forum in Spring of 2021. This forum served as a model and inspiration for our own leadership summit, which we held in September 2021. The WIN BRG and Nielsen have continued to work with Ingrid, supporting such initiatives as “Coding for a Change”, not only because we believe in Ingrid’s mission but because she is an inspiration to each and every one of us. She brings light to every project and hope to every story.
