The T10 Group began as the brainchild of two Stanford Ph.D.s who knew that the lack of diversity in organizations and industries had less to do with the actual human capital available than with stereotypes about people of color, women, and other marginalized groups.

The company officially opened its doors in 2015 although the founders had both researched and consulted on these issues for several years. The T10 Group is bi-coastal with offices in the Washington, D.C. area and Southern California.
