At The JPI Group, diversity isn’t an option.

It’s who we are.

And we hope you feel the same way

We work with pioneering companies who are looking to expand the hiring of diverse firms and candidates so they can meet diversity spend initiatives or break poor hiring practices that no longer reflect who they are today.

Your workforce is telling your clients a story about what you represent.

Let’s help you change your narrative

“We believe this is part of the greater vision to place 10,000 diverse STEM candidates at top companies around the country.”

Paul and Yom Douglas, Founders of The JPI Group


We work with ambitious companies who realize they lack diversity initiatives within their vendors
and employee base and are no longer willing to keep operating in the same old manner.

The Approach

  • If you lack diversity in gender, race, age… then it’s time to embed diversity into your company mission and values… and take action on it.
  • If diverse candidates often turn down your job offers … then you must be more intentional by showing you value diversity… especially at high level leadership positions
  • If you get frustrated when your diverse employees are leaving your workforce… then you should analyze your efforts at inclusion

The good news?
We’re here to help you.

Allow us to show you the way.

Since our inception, our focus on diversity recruitment and sourcing has been a constant to help increase the workforce diversity of our clients.

The JPI Group is a black-owned small business enterprise, diversity advocate, and 2020 National Minority Supplier Development Council awardee. Our founders, Iyomakha Douglas and Paul Douglas, are proud immigrants raised by single mothers. The couple now works to hire diverse STEM candidates from similar communities that they were raised in.
