About us

Incluu is a Black-woman-owned tech equity and ethics consultancy, dedicated to guiding organizations and individuals as they adopt a more intentional and thoughtful approach to their teams, processes, and products. We believe the key to a better, more equitable future lies in radical compassion, community, and collaboration, especially with those who have historically been marginalized.

Incluu was founded by Dr. Dédé Tetsubayashi (she/they), a Cornell University educated social scientist and technologist with over two decades of experience in promoting equitable outcomes at the intersection of ethical technology and social justice across the U.S., APAC, and African markets. Dr. Tetsubayashi has partnered with organizations ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, all with the shared goal of fostering a more equitable and ethical future in technology.

Fluent in seven languages, Dr. Tetsubayashi was born in the West African nation of Togo and raised in the Northeast and Midwest regions of the United States. They have lived in Japan, Germany, and the UK, and currently reside in the Bay Area with their partner, birth mother, and sister-in-love. Dr. Dédé is a global citizen with a deep appreciation for the richness of diversity and a keen understanding of how various aspects of identity intersect.

“If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together”

-African proverb

At Incluu, we focus on the intersection of tech equity, ethics, and DEI in product development, spanning society-centered and liberatory design, responsible innovation, and business value. We are committed to the belief that the tech industry must prioritize product development that is just, equitable, inclusive, and accessible, while also considering ethical aspects such as safety, privacy, and security by design. Embracing this approach is essential for the industry to remain relevant and achieve a global impact.
