Diversity and Inclusion Services

We are passionate and dedicated to enabling change to bring about a truly inclusive culture. Our aim is to change current practices in business, government and academia to better reflect the diverse society we live in and to promote an inclusive culture in which all feel supported and empowered.

General Services: We can help your organisation have the right policies and schemes – see below for our mentoring and network services – to benefit from diversity and inclusion.
We can also help change your organisation’s culture by providing training and raising awareness of diversity and inclusion.

We can review and advise on recruitment, progression and other policies to ensure you meet your equality obligations and start to benefit from diversity.

We can also provide training on unconscious bias and diversity and inclusion matters and, for under-represented groups, on application and Interview techniques, confidence building and networking skills.

Networks help members to interact with each other and to share knowledge and contacts, to promote personal development and provide mentoring. Through sharing views members gain a view across the organisation, bring about the transfer of knowledge and spotting of opportunities.

They provide a united view to their organisations and help tailor processes and provide continuity. We have experience of setting up, running and trouble-shooting various types of networks

We can help you assess the need for networks, identify which types are required and help advise on governance and the services to be provided by the network to members and the organisation.

We can train network leaders to influence the culture and composition of the organisation, to improve the personal development and career progression of members and wider staff and empower and support the wellbeing of members.

Mentoring is used to give a younger or less experienced person help and advice over a period of time. A mentee may require help or a sounding board for various facets of work including specific skills, progression, appraisal, mental health, life/work balance, interview techniques. We also have a great deal of experience in setting up reverse mentoring schemes.

We will work with you to plan and set up a mentoring scheme in your organisation. We can provide communications to raise awareness, training to kick start the scheme, analysis of trainees and recommendations on matches.
We also help develop your inhouse team to be able to run the scheme effectively.
