Walter's Consulting logo

“One of the things that drew us to Walters Consulting was the focus on equity. We had a really positive experience and SLG made a number of equity-related changes stemming from the research and recommendations Walters Consulting made. Our active alumni increased from about 200 to 1,000 and there were a lot of really positive changes. As a result, we are excited to continue this collaboration and partnership with Walters Consulting on our next project.”
