RANGE Consulting works with organizations across the state to incorporate LGBT inclusion into every aspect of their business and strategic plans. We partner with every size organization and every level of management to build inclusive policies and systems, solve common LGBT related workplace issues, and maintain legal compliance.
Our Relationship with The Center
As a program of The GLBT Community Center of Colorado, RANGE Consulting is Colorado’s only workplace training organization dedicated solely to the needs of LGBT employees and the workplaces in which they are employed.
Inclusive workplaces reduce the estimated $64 billion annual attrition cost associated with the nearly two million American workers who leave their jobs each year due to unfairness and discrimination.
“After this training, our group felt prepared to engage in educated, respectful conversations about GLBT issues, and to help develop workplace policies that treat all employees with fairness and dignity.”
——Whitney Stone, President
Colorado Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA)

Assessments & Metrics
RANGE Consulting works closely with organizations to assess organizational strengths and vulnerabilities pertaining to inclusiveness. Additionally, we can analyze any single inclusion metric, such as diversity equity, retention, and leadership.
As a 501(c)(3) social enterprise, RANGE Consulting places impact above profits. LGBT employees deserve to bring their whole selves to work and to be fully valued as contributing and impactful employees. Our goal is to eliminate LGBT discrimination in Colorado’s workplaces.
The RANGE Consulting Approach
Our approach to inclusivity training is based on methods that promote strategic partnership with a focus on organizational communication and tolerance. We tailor our curriculums to meet the needs of your industry, organization, and employees—with the goal of teaching people to see and treat each other with dignity and respect.
Creating workplaces that are free from discrimination and harassment takes a hands-on approach that goes beyond leadership and management. All team members, not just managers, are integral to creating an inclusive organization. Our approach provides employees with practical communication tools and empowers them to make positive changes in the organizational culture.
In order to motivate all levels of an organization to improve inclusivity, we educate employees on why LGBT inclusiveness matters to the company, customers, teams, and individual employees, for their day-to-day job and career advancement. Ultimately, we make the “business case” for the decision-makers and the “value case” for the team members.
““We understand that in order to sustain long-term success and offer our clients the very best level of service, we must continue to make diversity and inclusion a business imperative.””
—Roger Ferguson, President & CEO
We’re proud to have worked with a wide range of clients, here’s what they’re saying about us:
“Recently, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Rachel Lucas to educate our office staff on GLBTQ awareness. This allowed us to further our business model while increasing our knowledge on how to best serve our transgender clients and caregivers. Rachel is a professional speaker of some notoriety who is both cool under pressure, and communicates in a way in which everyone understands. As a subject matter expert, Rachel is a veritable resource of this niche field in human resources and employment law, and is playing a significant role in how we do business, train our staff, and care for our clients.”

“Rachel’s presentations were thought provoking and informative. Her passion for the topics was obvious, and I really appreciated her willingness to personalize the content by sharing her own stories. She established a safe environment for open discussion, and it felt good to know that so many in our organization will leave these trainings with a heightened awareness and knowledge of inclusive terminology, and better ways to practice inclusive care. Thank you!”

“Colorado EAPA wishes to thank The Center/RANGE Consulting for a relevant and fresh look at the legal issues related to GLBT issues in the workplace. Participants’ questions and comments were responded to thoughtfully and thoroughly, regardless of their previous knowledge of the issues. After this training, our group felt prepared to engage in educated, respectful conversations about GLBT issues, and to help develop workplace policies that treat all employees with fairness and dignity. Rachel is a dynamic presenter- her high-energy, professional style conveys both her subject-matter expertise and love for what she does. The only thing we would do differently is block out more time for this engaging explanation of a vital topic!”
