Incluu is a Black-woman-owned DEI&B consultancy whose mission is to educate, empower, and support organizations and individuals as they divest from the status quo by building with greater curiosity and intentionality in their teams, processes, and products. At incluu, we believe the path to a greater, more equitable future for all begins in radical compassion, community, and collaboration with the people and perspectives who have historically been left behind.
incluu was founded by Dr. Dédé Tetsubayashi (she/they), a Cornell University educated social scientist and technologist with over 2 decades experience building equitable outcomes at the intersection of ethical technology and social justice spanning the U.S., APAC, and African markets. She has partnered with organizations and leaders ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, all with the singular goal of educating, empowering, and supporting others in building for a more equitable future.
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 fond appreciation for the richness of difference, and a keen awareness of the myriad ways those differences intersect.
“If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together”-African proverb
