Meet The Team
Amanda Fernandez, MI, MBA, Founder, CEO
I founded Inclusifyy to invest my skills, knowledge, and privilege into countering inequitable workplace practices. I am single-minded about EDI and setting our clients up for success: I guide change-makers in creating corporate cultures where all employees have the support and tools they need to thrive.
I have extensive experience in people-management, leading large-scale organizational change, project management, and overall business awesomeness.
I believe in creating meaningful personal connections through empathetic listening, powerful story-telling, and salty language. I am a fan of quality whisky and bourbon, and my voice goes up two octaves when I see any non-human animal.
Hayden Woodley, MSc, PhD, CPHR
I am an industrial/organizational psychologist and an assistant professor of organizational behaviour at the Ivey Business School in London, Ontario. My research broadly focuses on understanding equity, work teams, leadership, and followership in the workplace.
In addition, I have over 10 years of consulting experience on various human resource management and other business-related projects (e.g., program evaluations and coaching teams/leaders). I take an evidence-based approach to decision-making, applying both quantitative and qualitative methods to answer complex questions for organizations.
I have extensive experience in qualitative research, interpretative phenomenological analysis, and discourse analysis. I build and facilitate workshops that take a personal, interpersonal and systemic approach to build inclusive organizational cultures.
The Atlantic Business magazine, 2020, selected me, “Bridge Builder,” as one of the 30 Under 30 innovators in Atlantic Canada. I received:
The “Outstanding Individual” award from the PEI Newcomers Association for my continuous work and involvement in supporting the growing newcomer communities in PEI.
The community organizer award from Faces of Fusion Charlottetown for my significant contributions to the Charlottetown community through activism, volunteerism, and community engagement.
I am a dynamic emcee and have volunteered to host various community events, collaborate and help community partners.
