ABOUT  US

Welcome to Shieldmaidens! 

We’re a dynamic consultancy on a daring mission to set a brand new tone for worldwide businesses to create more inclusive, forward-thinking workspaces that celebrate and leverage the power of diversity. Our fast-growing brand has evolved from a virtual assistant business to a successful inclusion and performance consultancy that is instrumental in transforming businesses into empowered, ethical and high-functioning powerhouses.

 

Inspired by the Scandinavian legend of the Shieldmaidens—fierce female warriors who fought bravely alongside men in order to conquer enemies—we champion the notion of workplace inclusivity and equality, showing entrepreneurs and small businesses how to set aside their inherent biases to level up their businesses. In doing so, our clients tap into their workforces’ varied strengths and gain the competitive edge in the ever-changing global marketplace.

 

Just like the Shieldmaidens of lore, we work boldly and fearlessly to create tangible and sustainable change. We assist organizations in creating a culture where employees are encouraged to celebrate their unique perspectives and where teams thrive on adopting a positive, respectful mindset. Our multidimensional approach to diversity, equity, inclusion, and wellbeing in the workplace centers around prioritizing people over profit and betterment over the bottom line.

 

When we elevate people across all ages, sexes, genders, races, and marginalized groups, we acknowledge the reality, validity and value in each person’s experience. Uplifting others by learning to set aside the unconscious biases we all carry leads to companies that stand the test of time. We believe that putting employees’ overall wellbeing at the forefront of a business’s mission, inspires change both in and outside of the workplace.

 

Empowering teams across the world to unleash their full potential and molding careers of purpose is our passion. 

 

We’d be honored to share that passion with you.
