College of the Atlantic
Problem: How does the most sustainable college in the United States with 25% international students embrace diversity, equity and inclusion?

Our Solution: Working with senior leadership at JAX, we looked at the onboarding process from the perspective of new employees. We identified the major obstacles in the onboarding process.
