About That Company Where Prince Harry Just Took a Job

• by RW

It is a coaching and mental health firm.

"I intend to help create impact in people's lives," Harry said in an emailed response to questions from The Wall Street Journal about why he's taking the job. "Proactive coaching provides endless possibilities for personal development, increased awareness, and an all-round better life."

"It's a meaningful and meaty role," said BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux.

So what is the perspective of the firm?

BetterUp co-founder and COO, Eduardo Medina, according to the company's website, says he is "a strong advocate for education, economic access, and equity in the workplace, areas where he actively mentors and advises emerging leaders."

And the firm has a diversity and inclusion program for its clients:

Workplace cultures strong in diversity, inclusion, and belonging have been linked to increased organizational productivity. BetterUp integrates evidence-based methods with scalable coaching strategies and robust analytics to transform your culture from the core of your organization — your people. We deliver holistic, personalized experiences that create meaningful change and support internal, personal growth.

It tells firms:

Broaden the diversity of your leadership by offering additional support to members of historically underserved/underrepresented groups. Providing your people with personal coaching ensures a safe place for them to explore challenging and sensitive topics.
