About Us

Working Towards a world with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our goal is to educate, empower and inspire change through equality, diversity and inclusion.

We deliver workshops, focus groups and consultations to inspire those in positions of power to create equity where needed within their organisations.

We discuss requirements and recommendations with clients and produce customised training.

Our workshops are designed to be both interactive and reflective, by combining presentations with interactive exercises and facilitator led exploration.

We have delivered workshops for organisations such as the Forward Institute, Aviva, Ministry of Defence and Universities UK.
