(from) Niche (to) Norm
There is something amazing about being in the presence of energized people seeking to celebrate and enrich the lives of others.
We started Niche2Norm to provide a space to foster these conversations and empower those whose lives we touch.
We believe every organization has the opportunity to become more positive, more powerful and more profitable by creating environments where all customers and all clients, all employees and all stakeholders feel valued and able to bring their complete selves to every interaction.
Diversity is the reality of the world; inclusion is our vision for the world.
Our future is a collective one.
