About Me

I'm Michelle Silverthorn, 
your LAUNCH instructor.

I'm Michelle Silverthorn, the Founder & CEO of Inclusion Nation. I'm a graduate of Princeton University and the University of Michigan Law School, a TEDx speaker, and the author of the best-selling book, Authentic Diversity: How to Change the Workplace for Good.

I have spent over a decade honing my professional expertise in diversity, equity, and inclusion. I have spoken in front of hundreds of audiences of anywhere from 4 people to over 40,000. In addition, I'm a certified online instructional designer. That's where Inclusion LAUNCH comes in.

Inclusion LAUNCH brings together my diversity expertise and my online training knowledge to give you a program centered on YOU and the steps to take to achieve real inclusive change at work.

My Story

I believe in you

I'm not your average diversity trainer.

I inspire people to live authentically in diverse communities grounded in honesty, courage, and leadership.

We need honesty to understand why diversity numbers don’t improve; we need courage to transform outcomes for good; and we need leaders ready to carry out the message of change.

After facilitating this work to tens of thousands of people live over the years, I designed this diversity e-learning suite so you can get the same learning experience that those around the globe have had from me, interactive and available on-demand, ready and waiting for you.

What my clients have to say

“I honestly can’t recall talks that captured my attention the way your sessions did. I certainly learned a lot and came away feeling empowered for action ... It was everything I wanted for the group and more ... You most definitely delivered something meaningful, thoughtful, inspiring and practical.”
Kirsten Green, Forerunner Ventures
“To say we were blown away by Michelle is an understatement ... She brought heart, she brought truth, and she created a space for candid, raw conversation. You know her words are powerful when she moves our Chairman to tears. She made employees feel seen and understood, while challenging others to uncover and confront their own bias and assumptions."
Kamala Avila, Lionsgate
