The Knight Consulting Group, LLC (KCG)
Founder and CEO
Rhonda Talford Knight is the founder and CEO of The Knight Consulting Group, LLC (KCG). KCG is a consulting firm that offers Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) services and Inclusive Leadership Coaching, where clients range from Fortune 500s to startups, public, private and nonprofit, nationally and internationally.  She has been consulting in DEI for 20 years, and has been called on by clients even while she was working in higher education and Corporate America.

While focused on DEI, with a natural skill for strategizing and leadership, it has led her to spaces where she is the expert in the room with CEOs, founders and senior level executives. Rhonda is focused on closing gaps for underrepresented populations and creating spaces of equity and inclusion. In her work, she finds great meaning in being able to coach and support her clients to develop sustainable DEI practices through strategy that reaches across their organization.

In 2018, Rhonda was named one of the Diversity Journal Women Worth Watching and received the 2019 Alumni Pacesetter Award from her undergraduate alma mater, Otterbein University. She holds a master’s degree and a doctoral degree in Social Studies and Global Education with a focus in Cultural Competency and Technology, both from The Ohio State University.  Rhonda lives in Canal Winchester and is blessed with two intelligent and entrepreneurial minded teenage girls that support and understand her work.
