TAP’s History

Our “Take A Pause” concept began in 2008. The U.S. economy had collapsed. Companies were struggling to sustain customers and staff. Cyclical unemployment strained the budgets of businesses and households alike. Due to this experience, we saw the demand for a workforce of skilled, certified, and licensed labor in companies throughout the nation.

Our Approach

We believe that employers that fish for labor in familiar watering holes are limiting themselves from many possibilities. To address this, we help companies reevaluate their guidelines on sourcing and recruiting. We utilize fair-minded critical thinking methods to help groups build bridges and opportunities for economic prosperity to those experiencing educational, health, and economic disparities.



Facilitating conversations, collaborations, and collective ventures which increase equitable and intentional efforts of diversity and inclusivity in the workforce.


Revealing the optical illusions and the cultural blindness of a utopia of togetherness. Intentionally dusting of lens to showcase diverse talents, diverse skills, and diverse labor available for the workforce. Direct divisive and challenging conversations from destruction to construction of equitable opportunities for each and every individual, company, industry.
