Tracy Dunbar

I believe Human Resources and Talent Management are critical levers to achieve social justice and equity in our workplaces. In 2016, I created HR ReDefined, a consultancy focused on designing a “new workplace” grounded in the principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

I have 20+ years experience working with Fortune 50 companies in a variety of fields from Marketing to Information Technology to Corporate Philanthropy. I have worked 15+ years in the social sector, leading teams and coaching senior leaders. What I learned in these environments has helped me to understand how tactical moves combine with cultural solutions to transform workplace culture.

At organizations like Teach For America and The Mission Continues, I developed talent management systems and workplace practices that centered the needs of team members, limited biased decision-making and fostered transparent communication. Through this work, we regularly saw higher rates of staff satisfaction, increased staff retention and better overall performance.

In November 2022, I joined IDEO.org as the Global Head of Talent and DEI. I continue to be driven by my passion to prove what equity and inclusion can look like─everyday─in the workplace. It is not only a moral imperative, but fair workplaces drive tangible results and create a better experience for all people. Outside of work, you can find me walking and exploring my neighborhood, watching the pros show off on The Food Network and traveling to new states to finish off my bucket list goal to visit all 50 states.

The Culture Guide Testimonials

"We worked with HR ReDefined to audit and redesign our entire employee manual. It was a very thoughtful process with the aim of creating and enhancing company policies and processes that would center equity in a powerful way. The team was a committed, creative, and energizing partner offering innovative new ideas and shaped the ones that my team offered for the better. She was also incredibly organized, communicative, and timely in all aspects of our work together. My organization could not be more proud of what we accomplished and productively refer to our new “Culture Guide” for all HR needs."

Kemi Ilesanmi
Former Executive Director, The Laundromat Project

"The work we did around policies and procedures and building transparency was very beneficial and has given me more language around what I wanted for the organization. The process of creating our Culture Guide was always “iterative, real, authentic, and trusting."

Jennifer March

"We now have much more clarity and transparency regarding our organizational policies which has had a positive impact on our culture."
