What We Do

Business Services

The Tarver Consulting Group ("TCG") is committed to creating equity, access and opportunity for women.  TCG provides policy analysis, programming, business development training, and technical assistance to expand economic development opportunities for women professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses.

We also provide resources and mentoring to encourage women and girls to consider and explore careers in STEM and technology, thereby increasing their earning potential and career opportunities.  

 


Economic Development

When we economically empower women, we reduce family poverty, grow economies, and build healthy and safe communities.   We can't grow women's economic empowerment and development without expanding employlment opportunities, training, access to finance, and entrepreneurial support services.

Skills Based Training

Professional women and entrepreneurs are more likely to succeed when they have ancillary services that help build and create infrastructure for their businesses, i.e., fiscal management and accounting services, HR policy and procedure, PR/marketing, and client acquisition are just a few of those services.

   

Diversity Training and Implicit Bias

Implicit biases impact the hiring, promotion, and career development of women, essentially fostering negative attitudes, and pushing women out of the marketplace and into under employment, unemployment or employment at poverty level wages.  Diversity training and assessments allow corporations to identify those negative biases creating and fostering a supportive environment for women to work and do business.  

Meaningful Networks

Statistics suggest that women professionals and executives have a higher succees rate when they leverage the networks, resources, mentorship, and expertise of  women's organizations and other strategic allies and community stakeholders.  

Policy Development

Policy analysis and development around women's economic empowerment requires increased collaboration and communication between women's right to work groups, equal pay advocates, and strategic corporate partners that are healthy and proactive in identifying and developing women professionals and executives.
