"John has consistently shared his wealth of knowledge and profound insights concerning the diversity and inclusion paradigm with our women leaders.   His extensive expertise in the field of inclusion and diversity springs from his genuine passion for fostering organizations and a world where individuals can flourish because of their unique differences, rather than despite of them. John exemplifies a balanced and fervent commitment to illustrating why D&I is not just a luxury but an absolute necessity. May countless other leaders be granted the privilege of learning from the wisdom of John Iino."

“Although change management is often challenging, John brings incredible kindness, patience, and a growth mindset to every interaction. No matter the role — coach, expert, advisor, colleague, or friend — I would give him five stars. “

CEO, Diversity Lab & Lead Advisor to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Accessibility

"As the CEO of MCCA and once a practicing lawyer, I have had a great fortune of meeting thousands of DEI leaders over the past two decades.  John is one of the few exceptional leaders whom I rely on for innovative DEI strategies and solutions.  John’s thoughtful approach to DEI is evidenced by the results he has achieved for Reed Smith over the years.  The data speaks for itself quantitively and qualitatively.  That is why John was the first partner I contacted outside our Board of Directors for feedback on MCCA’s law firm diversity scorecard.  He is a trusted advisor, friend, thought-partner and leader."
