New Business Partner: Introducing Surgo Consulting

LeadingAge Minnesota is proud to introduce a new business partner member – Surgo Consulting Facilitation & Training, LLC. To help you get to know them, we asked them to share information about what they do and who they serve. Here’s more from Surgo:

Surgo Consulting Facilitation & Training, LLC is a Twin Cities-based management consulting and employee training company specializing in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).

We have extensive exposure to the senior care/living industry and a deep understanding of the myriad of challenges currently facing organizations that serve seniors.

We excel at working with organizations just starting with DEI work. As a general rule, we believe that the DEI journey begins with diversity training—especially for management—as it is essential to give managers the requisite knowledge, tools, and vocabulary necessary to be able to participate in the organization's DEI journey. We are also quite adept at helping organizations advance their existing DEI initiatives.

Our training programs are comfortable for our clients' employees as we don't "call people out" or put them on the defensive. Our training programs are co-facilitated by Stephen Blair Venable (an African American management consultant and master trainer) and Karl Mulle (a white psychologist and master trainer).

In addition to training, we can help clients put together a diversity plan that fits the size and scope of their needs, whether for a single- or multi-site organization.

Please contact Stephen Venable at if you have questions or want to explore the possibility of working together.
