The Crescendo Group is a social enterprise that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion by supporting women and underrepresented groups in the workplace and in public spaces through workforce development activities, career coaching, and empowerment trainings.

Providing Jobs & Income

Having the freedom to earn a living is crucial to women's well-being and ability to contribute to their households. Empirical data shows that women re-invest earnings into their families, such as ensuring their children attend school.

Promoting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA)

Most workplaces are not accommodating to women, BIPOC, and people with disabilities. Oftentimes, it's due to a lack of awareness and knowledge. Accommodating all groups lead to higher productivity and attrition.
