Our Story

David Cohen, our President and co-founder, has a passion for equity work and an entrepreneurial spirit. He grew up in a household passionate about pursuing equity in the United States. Hearing stories of his parents’ participation in the March on Washington during the civil rights movement, he was inspired to pursue workplace equity as a line of work. While studying at West Virginia University, he was introduced to industrial and organizational psychology and became fascinated. He began to see the OFCCP space as an opportunity to elicit change in the workplace and pursued a Master’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology at Radford University.  

Post graduation, David spent time learning federal regulations and becoming familiar with the consulting industry. He identified the need for an outsourcing partner that companies could depend on to implement real change within their organization, not just check a compliance box. He wanted to create a one-stop -shop where companies would find a strategic partner. Brian Pirko, our co-founder, heard his story and DCI Consulting was created.  

Since our founding in 2001, we have the same goal – to work alongside our clients to improve workplace equity. We continue to follow Dave and Brian’s vision of engaging in our industry and hiring experts to develop highly specialized practice areas.
