Meet Our Team

At Culture Refinery, we make it personal, because we know from experience that the kind of work we do takes trust. Unlike traditional consulting firms, we think of ourselves as an extension of your organization. As partners in culture cultivation.

We’re here to collaborate, and that takes getting to know your past, addressing your present, and visualizing your future.

(It looks good, by the way.)

We know that Human Resources are just one part of the equation, that’s where our expertise outside of HR comes in.

As seasoned leaders and consultants, we’ve had firsthand experience with the dangers of implicit bias, poorly trained managers, the lack of professional development for marginalized talent – and the cultures that accept it all. That helps us to partner with your HR team to engage your whole organization so it thrives on every possible level.

Founder & Principal of Culture Refinery

With decades of experience managing diverse teams across a variety of functions in corporate America, Denitresse has seen firsthand how organizations get stuck making the same ineffective, DEI mistakes: recruiting diverse talent before they’re ready to support them, relying on affinity groups to do the DEI heavy lifting, and taking a top-down approach that skips over the importance of middle management. Knowing there was a better way influenced the creation of Culture Refinery.
