What We’re Up To

BerlinRosen Acquires DEI Consulting Agency Onward

July 6th, 2022

We’re thrilled to announce that Onward is now part of BerlinRosen!

Onward designs and delivers innovative learning experiences that build personal and organizational capacity for change through DEI consulting focused on testing the most cutting-edge solutions to issues of equity.

Since its founding in 2016, Onward has quickly become a go-to agency in the DEI space due to their strength in transforming organizational culture in a sustainable way. They have partnered with many organizations, including Nike, One Design, the New Commonwealth Fund, Only One, The Gates Foundation and even us, to bolster improvements in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.

“As an entrepreneur and as someone who took a fundamentally different approach to building a company, I am both humbled and thrilled for this new path for Onward. It was fundamental to join an agency that not only represents blue chip brands and organizations at the forefront of innovation, but also one that does the same DEI work internally. 

Joining BerlinRosen is a massive opportunity for Onward to leverage the expertise of a powerful communications agency to fuel our work and create tremendous impact in the industry.”

Thaly Germain, Onward Founder

Onward will help us drive new and coordinated DEI engagement strategies as well as further power our Cultural Competency division, focused on discrete, high-level counsel, strategy, messaging and communications guidance for organizations handling complex cultural challenges and opportunities inside and outside their operations. Click here to learn more about it.
