WE ARE

Sister-brother duo Margaret Alabi and David Alabi launched The Pivot Consulting Group, LLC the moment they realized people of color, themselves included, needed coaching from like-minded mentors to prepare them to compete for access to mainstream corporate America, as well as promotion once inside these well-guarded institutions.

Based on this disquieting recognition of how unprepared minorities are to win career shaping internships, entry-level jobs, and promotions—even those graduating from the most prestigious universities—Margaret and David introduced individualized coaching sessions in 2013. Building on this success, Pivot Consulting now offers professional development workshops, keynote presentations, panel discussions, leadership training, and group coaching.

Clients and diversity hiring specialists began referring to The Pivot Consulting Group, LLC as simply “The Pivot” acknowledging Alabis’ mission to turn culturally diverse people toward leadership roles and move hiring managers to people of color.

Today, with increasing brand awareness, a growing list of university clients, and an ever-widening pipeline to diversity hiring managers, this boutique-consulting firm is in the right place at the right time.

Thank you for your vibrant, honest, and inspiring presentation to our students. They truly enjoyed your advice and wisdom…as evidenced by them holding you hostage in Carver Hall until nearly 9pm…after they had been in class since 8am! More students need to hear your message, both Pharm D and undergraduate, and I am hoping there are some areas where we can partner to further develop our minority students and prepare them for their lives and careers after graduation.

One of the aspects of working with Margaret and the Pivot Co I appreciated most was her dedication to my success. This was reflected in her professional demeanor and the time she invested in our interactions. Ultimately, I made it to the final round of several separate interview processes and received multiple offers of employment from fellowship programs. I truly do not believe I would have been as successful without Margaret’s expertise and coaching.
