Ubaldo Ciminieri and Joe Thurman are business partners, entrepreneurs, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Justice (DEIBJ) thought leaders with over 10 years of experience building cultures of inclusion. They are experts in the field of DEIBJ training, strategy and implementation. Supporting companies in the US, Canada, Australia and India, they have the knowledge and experience to help executive teams develop and implement real-world DEIBJ solutions. They are also co-founders of interviewIA, a technology solution focused on making hiring more equitable. 

This is not your traditional DEIBJ or Unconscious Bias consulting. Breaking the Bias is designed to help companies and individuals create tools, methods, and strategies that systematically change an organization’s ability to drive inclusion. Creating a culture driven by curiosity is the cornerstone of Inclusion-driven Diversity. And as a result, the mental health and well-being of employees will grow as your culture grows.


Created by Joe Thurman and Ubaldo Ciminieri, these programs put action behind the conversation of Conscious Inclusion and Cultures of Belonging. Inclusion should be deliberate. Diversity should be natural.

“Joe Thurman and UB Ciminieri are truly breaking barriers with their forward thinking and approach to building teams for organizations from the top down. It was a true awakening for me to acknowledge that no matter what background a person may have, they most likely have biases in some way or another.  Whether they are conscious or unconscious biases, Joe and UB are on a mission to bring those biases to your attention, while helping organizations realize the potential of building diverse, inclusive teams that will flourish. Their talk has forever changed my view of how organizations recruit, hire, and retain their workforce, and I am forever grateful that I will be able to be a part of their movement in Breaking the Bias! I highly recommend you join them on their journey!!”
