Michael Carter, CEO

Our Founder

Michael D. Carter is the founder and CEO of IC Edge, a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) firm that delivers high-quality intercultural competence education and DEI strategy development. Michael teaches that once we shift our mindsets to a more interculturally competent orientation, we allow diversity, equity,
and inclusion to flourish within our organization.

IC Edge (Intercultural Competence Edge) is a St. Paul, Minnesota-based consulting firm serving clients nationwide. In its seventh year, IC Edge solutions are intercultural competence-based and cover a range of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) solutions. Michael and his team of top national consultants and facilitators address the DEI needs of organizations ranging from small businesses to large corporations to nonprofits, educational institutions, and boards of directors.

Michael obtained his BS in business from Syracuse University and an MBA from the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Michael relocated to the Midwest to join the 3M Company, where he enjoyed a 25-year career in sales, marketing, product development, leadership training, and workplace transformation. Although he spent many years as a successful sales and marketing professional, he moved into the DE&I field because of his passion for studying and teaching intercultural competence.
