At The Ringgold, we are management & strategy consultants for purpose-driven organizations. Together, we consult and collaborate with leaders on their strategic communications, equity, and research initiatives. 

Occasionally, when a situation requires more dedicated care, organizations ask us to step in and lead delicate, essential projects for a designated period of time. We specialize in leading mission critical, high impact organizational ambitions when teams don't have the capacity and/or expertise to do it themselves.

When you bring us on to join your team, you’ll get deliberate reflection, catalytic inquiry, and solid action plans with implementation support to help you resolve conflicts, overcome challenges, and achieve real results.

Let's Go!

  • "I had the good fortune to have worked very closely with Yasmene Mumby across an intense six-month period designing and delivering a complex global communication plan and execution to 17,000 global employees in nineteen languages and 16 time zones. Yasmene’s instant engagement, ability to ramp up quickly, learn and interpret our culture and drive us forward was one of the key success factors for us. Yasmene listens, teaches, and coaches. Her ability to be tactical and operational all while writing moving, thoughtful and diversely sensitive messages for our global staff that captured the essence of IRC is remarkable. I can not wait to have her back."

  • “Yasmene’s voice — both spoken and written — is clear, bold and energizing. She helped to write our research report on leadership diversity in the early care and education sector, adding a critical lens to our messages about equity, sharpening our overall narrative, and emboldening our tone and call to action. Yasmene is the best kind of colleague — the one who pushes you to places you didn’t think you could go, with high expectations for herself and the team, with her gentle, persistent nudges and thought-provoking questions, with clear and compelling rationale and approaches for being bold. She is true to herself and her gifts, and finds a way to tap into everyone else’s talents through the process. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with her and for the excellence of our final product.”
