Hi, I'm Alida.

I'm a Consultant Strategist Coach Facilitator Teacher Learning Designer Leader

As the CEO of Ethos and Amazon bestselling author of Cultures of Belonging and The First-Time Manager: DEI, I am committed to teaching love, scaling empathy, and healing harm through diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging strategies.

I am the CEO and Founder of Ethos and author of the books Cultures of Belonging: Building Inclusive Organizations that Last (2022) and The First-Time Manager: DEI (2024)

I help create the conditions for everyone to thrive at work.

At Ethos, a full-service diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging transformation firm (DEIB), I collaborate with my colleagues to advocate for employees at hundreds of client organizations across the United States, Canada, Europe, and India.

I host Care Work, a podcast which focuses on what it means to offer care for a living through interviews and research.

In 2021, I received the University of Chicago’s Early Career Achievement Award. I am a graduate of The University of Chicago and holds certificates from the School of the Art Institute (graphic design) and Georgetown University (DEI).

I live in Chicago with my partner, toddler, rabbits, and cats. When I’m not working, reading, writing, or parenting, you can find me serving on the Membership Committee of Chicago Women in Philanthropy, wild gardening, interior designing, and falling down research rabbit holes.

Ethos helps with some of the hardest and most important problems we face: how do we work well together as a team, and what to do when we don’t. Alida brings an amazing amount of intellectual understanding and human empathy that connects with everyone on the team and has helped us grow tremendously.

I am so fortunate to live my mission and purpose every day at Ethos, a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) transformation firm closing the opportunity gap for underrepresented and underserved groups. At Ethos we give our clients the security to pursue optimism.

The team at Ethos have been incredibly valuable partners and facilitators for all of us at dscout. The ability to understand a project and to partner with a client through project is in the blood of the team at Ethos. Our team always looks forward to a day when Ethos is involved.
