Guidehouse, a Fairfax County-based global consulting firm, has hired Dominica Groom Williams as the company’s head chief culture, inclusion and diversity officer.
Groom Williams, who has more than a decade of human capital, diversity, inclusion, strategy development and leadership experience, will begin her new role June 7.
She will be responsible for heading the company’s efforts to develop “a strategic vision and implement a plan to evolve a culture of inclusion, diversity and excellence as a part of the core mission and values.”
Additionally, she will be responsible for overseeing programs and initiatives that will further enhance the company’s commitment to fostering a great work environment and will report directly to the company’s CEO, Scott McIntyre.
Groom Williams most recently served as vice president of the Office of Inclusive Engagement at Freddie Mac, the Fortune 500 federally sponsored home loan mortgage company based in Tysons.
“I am honored to be joining the Guidehouse family and its powerful mission. I look forward to playing a meaningful role in further evolving company culture, advancing [diversity inclusion and equity] and impacting our communities globally,” Groom Williams said in a statement.
Guidehouse announced in May that it will establish its world headquarters in Tysons, investing $12.7 million in a facility that will house 1,550 employees at full capacity. Virginia beat out Maryland and Washington, D.C., for the project.
Owned by Veritas Capital, Guidehouse employs more than 9,000 people in more than 50 locations around the world and works in public and commercial markets, providing advisory, consulting, outsourcing and digital services in management, technology and risk consulting.
