If you want to attract the best talent, diversity, equity and inclusion should be at the heart of your business.
It's not just about making bold statements and big commitments. Nor is it solely about improving financial performance. It’s about fostering innovation and creativity with an inclusive work environment that doesn't leave anyone behind.
As inclusion becomes an expectation rather than a nice to see – many businesses falter at the implementation stage. Issues with getting started, or seeing strategies through with success, are common, and that’s where we can help.
If you're looking to introduce a diversity and inclusion strategy, or have already made a start and need help to make it fly, this is for you.
We will be your D&I consultancy partner and ally.
If you're not measuring the diversity of your workforce, you won't be properly equipped to see progress in your diversity and inclusion strategy. Diverse data serves you, your staff, as well as your service users and customers. It is often scrutinised by the public, requested by funders, used to assess industry awards and more.
So, the question is: not only are you collecting diverse data, but how do you go about demonstrating that it is going to be used for the right reasons – so that you can build trust and collect accurate data? Equally - how are you analysing it, and using it in the best way for your business?
Leadership Awareness and Learning
We will guide senior leaders and boardroom members in tackling diversity issues in the workplace. We don't often use the term 'training'. Our approach is to increase awareness and knowledge about diversity and inclusion, and challenge participants to learn from us and from each other.
What's your next step?
If you're not sure how to take your D&I strategy to the next level, we can help.
You might have had an energetic start to your plan, but engagement and momentum can sometimes wane or escape you altogether.
We work with you to examine what you need to do to remain focused and competitive in the ever changing and fast-paced world. Our aim is to be a critical friend and ally. We ask you to place your trust in us, allowing us to do what we do best, enabling you to focus on your business' primary purpose.
Inclusive Culture Assessment
Embedding inclusive culture into a workplace isn't easy.
In our experience, creating change from within comes with challenge and resistance. Let us take on that challenge. We will assess your specific needs and provide a program of change designed to foster a workplace where employees are encouraged to bring their true selves to work.
Measuring results : D&I policies and processes alone are not enough. Measuring and assessing impact is crucial if you are to meet business needs and plan ahead.
With our assessments, we provide analysis of where you are, followed by where you want to be and, critically, how to get there.

Mentoring and Support
Is the mentoring and support you’re offering giving you effective results?
We have the advantage of lived experience combined with mentoring skills. This enables us to provide a bespoke support package for your workforce, be it at entry or leadership level.
With the best of intentions, sometimes things just don't go to plan. We can provide an impartial service to help bring back some harmony and solutions to challenging situations.
