Our History:

  • Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. was founded in 1985 by Dr. Edward Hubbard, Ph.D., and Dr. Myra Hubbard, Ph.D. in Petaluma, CA. Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. is a privately owned, international organization and human performance consulting corporation with offices in the United States, Europe, and other world locations.
  • Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. was born out of a need to demonstrate and measure the value of utilizing diverse human and other resources to drive measurable results to the financial bottom line.
  • No matter what professional field or discipline you analyze, they all have at least two recognizable components: theory and science. Coming from job-related experiences in corporate America and working in institutions of higher-level education, Drs. Edward and Myra Hubbard realized that processes and systems to show evidence-based impact through the use of diverse human resources were missing in the Human Resources (HR) and business fields.
  • In particular, Dr. Edward Hubbard, having systems engineering, training, and development, as well as business systems knowledge expertise, observed that the fields of diversity and inclusion lacked “hard sciences” to definitively prove their value in concrete evidence-based terms. As a result, as early as 1980, Dr. Ed Hubbard began creating what would become the copyrighted “Hubbard Diversity ROI Framework and Diversity Discipline Sciences™.” These Return on Investment (ROI-based) sciences are designed to give diversity executives, diversity practitioners, executives, managers, and others the practical yet comprehensive tools needed to credibly translate diversity and inclusion initiatives, as well as other initiative results into financial and other impact-based outcomes.
