how we work

We help organisations to reap the benefits of embedding equality, diversity and inclusion

We ensure that our solutions are driven by robust data and analysis, to provide comfort that any solutions are appropriate and outcomes are measurable.

  • We deliver EDI data audits to obtain as much qualitative and quantitative EDI data as possible.
  • We match quantitative data (who is in the organisation), with qualitative data (how do people feel) to provide a holistic picture of EDI.
  • We use EDI data as a starting point to identify and address the main EDI concerns of an organisation or industry.
  • Data is at the heart of everything we do.

We believe in maximising the impact of equality, diversity and inclusion by collaborating with several organisations across multiple sectors.

  • Collaboration is key to our approach to embedding best practice across a number of companies simultaneously.
  • Joint working allows for the identification of sector specific issues to be addressed.
  • Data collection and reporting at a cross sector level can help to measure progress.
  • We have facilitated cross industry EDI initiatives in the construction, infrastructure, energy and utilities sectors.

We consider several aspects of both protected and non-protected characteristics to assess the impact of EDI across organisations and sectors.

  • We assess the impact of multiple aspects of diversity without losing the focus on character specific issues.
  • By addressing issues intersectionally, we ensure that EDI interventions are efficient, effective and sustainable over the long-term.
  • If EDI issues are not identified and addressed intersectionally, it is then impossible to develop interventions that completely deal with these issues.

We understand that the successful implementation of EDI best practice across an organisation will need significant levels of leadership buy in.

  • Leadership coaching can create a safe space for leaders to assess and develop their equality, diversity and inclusion competence.
  • We act as a critical friend and challenge leaders in a way that encourages them to explore their personal contributions to EDI within their companies and the wider sectors they operate in.
  • We support leaders on their journey towards championing EDI and leaving a positive legacy.

Our focus is on transforming the way that organisations assess and improve their equality, diversity and inclusion outcomes.

  • Most companies rely on 'off the shelf' EDI activities, but we customise our interventions to each companies specific circumstances.
  • Our ambition is for organisations to be noticeably different after engaging with us.
  • We seek to help organisations to truly embed EDI best practice to guide their company / industry EDI outcomes.
